I have been diagnosed with Atypical Acid reflux, with no endoscopy, ( I think I made the doctor late for a golf game). Unfortunately I don't have insurance, so I can't afford second and third opinions, anyways, I have been on Prevacid 2x a day for over a month now, and taking calcium/Magnesium supplements reccomended in other threads, but heres where it gets kind of weird, I don't have any of the symptoms I read about in the acid reflux boards, and I even told my doctor this., but I eat very bland and that helps, but sometimes I can eat pizza with no problem, I ate 3 slices the other day as an experiment, and didn't feel that bad, but tonight I had some mashed potatoes, and i feel horrible, just plain mashed potatoes. It feels like lots of bubbles are coming up from my stomach but I'm not burping, the just kinda pop at the top of my throat, and some get stuck causing me to gag. This happens a lot when I eat wat I think are healthy foods, salads, chicken stuff like that. Do I have a problem with gas moreso than acid, if so how do I make that feeling go away so I can get some sleep?
Sorry for the long post.
