    Question Gaining Weight/Acid Reflux

    Hello all! I recently posted something similar but it seems as if my anxiety is taking over so I gotta post again while adding a few details I recently found out.

    I am 18 years old, taking Prilosec OTC recommended by my doctor. He said I only had to take it for 2 weeks as it says on the box for my mild acid reflux. I was fine with this until he ALSO told me to eat foods with a lot of fat/calories so I could gain weight (im underweight!!). It seems as if hes more concerned about that instead of my reflux….

    What I'm concerned about is how my "fatty/carb eating" is going to affect the reflux. I was prepared to go on a reflux diet so I dont get acid rebound from the Prilosec once im off of it (if i even do get the rebound lol) but now that I have to eat all of the foods people recommend i SHOULD NOT eat while having reflux, im worried. Everything that I'm not supposed to eat, the doctor says I need to eat. I really don't want my reflux to get worse, especially since its kind of mild in the first place!!! If I get a worse heartburn or nausea every morning like I kind of had ill probably be crying every night

    If someone could give advice or tell me everything that would be great. Im just a worried willy, I need to control my anxiety and many health concerns too. Thank you!!

    You need to learn to relax and listen to your doctor.

    If your worried about GERD eat more often and eat smaller portions.
