Can a gerd patient take Ibuprofen?

Ibuprofen and agitate the symptoms of acid reflux. Ibuprofen can increase the symptoms and severity of GERD. Studies have demonstrated that NSAID users were twice as likely to have GERD symptoms as those, who did take ibuprofen, Aspirin, and other NSAIDs. Always best to ask your doctor before taking any over-the-counter meds. If you must take ibuprofen and you have been diagnosed with GERD, taking the Ibuprofen with milk and/or yogurt may lessen the potential agitation.

Acid Reflux

Can you eat grapes if you have gastro esophageal reflux?

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a condition in which the stomach contents (food or liquid) leak backwards from the stomach into the esophagus (the tube from the mouth to the stomach). This action can irritate the esophagus, causing heartburn and other symptoms.

Every one is different, so you should ask your doctor about what you can and can not eat.

Does eating graham crackers help prevent acid reflux?

I could not find any literature out there supporting Graham Cracker therapy for acid reflux prevention. Although I enjoy Graham Crackers, I have to answer No! Unless Graham Crackers increase lower esophageal sphincter tone or increase gastric/gut motility, I can see no reason as to why it would prevent reflux. However, if it helps your reflux symptoms, maybe you can submit yourself as a case-study.

Acid Reflux

Why does stomach acid come back up in mouth?

First a little anatomy lesson;

There is a muscle at the bottom of the esophagus (the tube between the mouth and the stomach), called the 'lower esophageal sphincter' (LES), that tightens to close the opening to the stomach after a person stops eating and/or drinking to prevent the backing up (reflux) of stomach content into the esophagus.

So the reason why stomach acid, or any liquid/food, comes back up from the stomach and into the mouth (also called regurgitation) is because this muscle has not done what it was supposed to do at that time. It either became loose, or didn't close all the way.

Causes that loosen this muscle can be many - from taking certain medications (pain pills, muscle relaxers, etc.), eating certain foods and drinks (chocolate, peppermint, citrus fruits/drinks, alcohol, soda, coffee, etc.) to the position of the body (bending over a certain way), or anything that causes extra pressure on the stomach, even certain medical conditions.

If it only happens once or twice, I agree, it's not too much to worry about. Just drink some water to push/wash the acid back down into the stomach, because you don't want the acid to stay in the esophagus or back of throat because it can cause damage to teeth and the esophagus itself.

If it happens more often, a trip to a doctor, in order to find out or rule out any medical condition, such as GERD, Acid Reflux, hernia, or any other contributing factor.

-----

You probably ate fried or greasy food. When fried or greasy food is consumed, your body must create more acid to break it down. When the food is gone, the acid remains. Your body slowly gets rid of the excess acid, but slowly. The acid is so hot, that it slowly rises, like a hot air balloon. Then, your mouth! Don't worry, it should do it once or twice, then go away.

Applesauce

Is applesauce helpful for acid reflux?

Apples and applesauce are great for acid reflux. They work best taken as a preventative measure....before you reflux starts. An apple a day works perfectly for me.

If you do have an acid reflux attack, eating an apple or some no sugar added applesauce can be very effective at relieving symptoms.

The high acidity level of the apple causes the stomach to completely halt acid production. Then the fiber in the food aids digestion.

I had AWFUL reflux. To the point where I was nauseas and waking up in the middle of the night trying to not throw up. Apples are a natural cure that changed my life. I take no other acid reducing medicine.

Why would you have severe acid reflux after a pregnancy if you never had it before?

Our bodies are constantly changing. Someone told me your body changes every five to seven years. I'm not sure if that's true or not, but ...

Some people develop asthma as adults and they never had it as children. Some people have allergies as children and then "grow out" of the allergies when they become adults.

Pregnancy causes some serious changes to your body. I would think developing acid reflux after a pregnancy isn't totally out of the ordinary but I'm not a medical professional!

Acid reflux is extremely common in pregnancy. All of your organs, including your stomach, are displaced because of the uterus enlarging. You also have a whole host of hormones that are changing the way food tastes and what foods will cause reflux symptoms. Try to pay attention to which foods seem to make your symptoms worse and avoid these--often the symptoms will go away after the baby has been delivered.

Thank you.

Answer also: Highly recommended by my gastroenterologist was to take a probiotic EVERY day. You can take in capsule or liquid form. I also highly recommend apple cider vinegar as well as Kevita bottled drinks which contains apple cider vinegar and probiotics. Kombucha bottled drinks also work wonders but because it has black tea just be aware of the caffeine. DO NOT EAT MEAT, especially red meat and heavy meals late or close to bedtime. My gastro doc said do not eat after 7:00 pm.
