    Re: Club soda...

    Considering club soda would cause lots of gas, I can't see it helping generally. You would be better to use a bit of baking soda in water.

    Have you been diagnosed with reflux via upper endoscope?
    Have you been checked for H. Pylori?

    Meds dont stop the reflux...they lower the acidity of the stomach acid, through various methods, so it doesn't erode your esophagus or throat.

    Your choice could be to make serious food changes if you don't want to be on meds. Or use meds at this point while making other changes. Use baking soda or tums instead of carbonated drinks.

    You should, however, eventually have another follow-up scope to see if there is any damage above your stomach. Get checked for H. Pylori.
