    You will more than likely know by your symptoms and if you get relief from meds. after a few weeks. My fingers turn black where my ring is when I eat a lot of acid foods. It's a 5,000 dollar ring too so sure it's the gold band. Best way to find out once and for all is talk to your Dr. and DEMAND test that prove it. I think too many Dr's are just throwing us the "purple pill" without finding out the real problem causing all the symptoms.

    Good Luck and don't be afraid to ask questions.

    Re: how to tell is you have too much acid

    if you are meaning to much as in acid reflux, then most people dont actually produce more acid than the average normal healhty person unless they have been diagnosed with a deasease which i cant remember the name of, but does cause a large production of acid, anyway acid reflux is not nesscary from to much acid, its from the aicd we have getting where it shouldnt be ie into the throat etc, hence we get symptoms, acid reflux can be from lots of different reasons but bascally somehting causes the splincer muscle to not work, this could be just a machanical fault or could be from celeac deasease causing indigestion, gas etc............if you are having reflux you will have symptoms such as neasuea, heartburn, chest pains, sore throat, voice weakness, flem. cough, tight feeling in throat, lump in throat, ear ache or fullness, post nasel drip, and genereal indigestion thats heaps and i have had most of them except heatburn!!!
