Question A question about the magnesium sticky...

I'm sure most of those folks have moved on, but I had a question. I've been on the reflux board for a time now and just saw a linky back to this post, I'm interested in starting up magnesium, I do have one question.

Farther down in the post, someone suggested that a person that had the nightime reflux, where it crawls up and gags you, should take their full course of PPIs to heal up that part and then continue with magnesium.

I'm just wondering if anyone has had the "rising gorge" part of reflux and battled it back with magnesium, or whether I should run both concurrently?

Re: A question about the magnesium sticky...

Well -- I am still here!!

With acid reflux -- at night -- it's best to sleep with your head raised 3 or 4 inches to keep the stomach acid from travelling up your esophagus and irritating it.

Magnesium is used to keep your entire system from cramping or spasming. Every cell in your body contains magnesium -- it is believed that 75% of people are lacking it even with it present in so many foods?

The PPI is always good for awhile but I don't like it permanently. The acid is there for reasons -- who knows the long term side effects of low stomach acid?

God Bless~~~Harry

I do have 1 other question, I'm feeling better on the PPI, and taking the mag. My question is this. I stil have the mouth and tongue and throat burning. Is there any way to get rid of that at all?

Re: A question about the magnesium sticky...

The only thing that I know of is raise the head of your bed 3 to 4 inches and change your diet to a blander type.

Don't eat anything 3 hours before going to bed. Yogurt is OK or a piece fruit that is not acidic.
