    bloating from drinking water for LPR

    Wasn't really sure where to post, but decided that this was the most appropriate place seeing as my problem basically stems from LPR.

    I have suffered from LPR for about 6 years now, but initially refused to believe the two throat specialists I saw, since they both said my throat problems were due to reflux whereas I have never suffered from heartburn and the like. Anyway, since acknowledging that they were probably right, I have tried eliminating all those foods that could cause acidity or aggravate my throat: chocolate, coffee, alcohol, vinegar, spicy dishes, citrus fruits and tomatoes, soft-drinks etc. I almost expected to lose weight as a result of this 'diet', but if anything I have put weight on, and I now have an incredibly belly; people must think I'm a beer drinker.

    This gut has come about because I am now drinking lots and lots of alkalised water every day which, according to recent studies, can help alleviate the symptoms of LPR. I feel constantly bloated, and feel extremely self-conscious about my stomach. I should add that before starting the 'diet', I drank extremely little water (lots of Nescafé, however!!).

    Is it possible that water can create bloating? I've noticed that doctors actually prescribe water for people who have stomach bloating. Another thing that might be worth mentioning; I have always suffered from extremely dry skin and eczema - it's almost as if my body cannot regulate water intake and skin hydration.

    Can anyone suggest how to get rid of the bloating?

    Try Kukicha Japanese Twig tea, it will help you burp and turn some of the liquid into gas. (tea bags are better than tea as it is more concentrated) It has helped me a lot. Hope you can find some.

    Stop drinking so much water. When I was placed on Nexium the doc told me to drink a glass with the drug and drink several glasses a day. But I started having that problem you have. My doctor check my kidneys via a blood test, and I have slight kidney problems. Have the doc to a complete blood exam.
