What are the symptoms of acid reflux?

Acid reflux is usually an issue after meals when the acid in your stomach works its way up into your esophagus. It involves pain in the chest and throat, and is sometimes accompanied by a nasty taste in the mouth or that "throw up" in your mouth that burns your tongue. You can lessen it by avoiding eating at night, eating smaller portions more often during the day, and staying away from acidic foods like tomatoes and citrus fruits. If over-the-counter antacids and a diet low in acids and spices don't help, you may need to see a doctor for a prescription.

Can GERD cause a swollen lymph node in your neck?

Yes but you should check with an ENT to make sure it is not lymphoma, Hodgkins Disease or non-hodgkins. If you have other symptoms going on like night sweats, lack of energy, wait loss or it continues after GERD treatment consult your specialist or Primary care physician ASAP. In addition, if you consume a lot of alcohol followed by swollen lymph nodes you should see your doctor to make sure its not a form of cancer. If they suspect it is, they will do the radiology test, labs, and if they determine further testing is needed they may want to do a biopsy which consists of taking out one lymph node and doing the pathology testing to be sure.

Can vomiting help acid reflux?

I've had acid reflux for years now. It's actually turned into Barrett's Esophagus (a premalignent condition that is the result of acid reflux). While vomiting can help, it can also be a bit harmful. Usually when you have acid reflux so badly, you'll vomit bile (which is practically just acid from your stomach). It can sometimes be black, or even yellow. While it may make you feel better to do it, it can be very harmful to your teeth, as well as your esophageal lining. The acid from the bile will eat away at your teeth, which is why sometimes a dentist can identify a bulemic because of the acid damage to his/her teeth. I highly suggest seeing a doctor and looking into some medication specifically for acid reflux. Nexium 40mg (the purple pill that you see advertised on TV) is probably the best pill available. However, only a doctor can decide how severe your acid reflux may be. If it's less severe, he may prescribe something a little less strong, such as Prilosec. So, if you're having to vomit frequently due to acid reflux, I would schedule an appointment with your doctor as soon as possible to help prevent further scarring or damage to your esophageal lining. Please feel free to message me if you have anymore questions!

Is there any treatment out there for Acid reflux GERD or a Hietial hernia that won't cause damage to your heart and make you go to the ER yet again?

One home remedy is to raise your mattress while sleeping. Using continuous monitoring of pH (acidity) within the esophagus among several alternative positions at rest, this randomized clinical trial detected a significant decrease in the time that the esophagus was exposed to highly acid conditions when using a foam wedge to elevate the head, and also showed a decrease in the time necessary for the acid to be cleared. Interestingly, use of a wedge-shaped mechanism was significantly more effective than elevation through the use of standard bed blocks. Source: http://www.bedlift.com/Sleeping.htm

What can you eat safely if you have GERD?

moringa can help. Then there's also what you need to avoid, which is the following:

* citrus fruits (oranges, lemons, etc.) and their juices

* tomatoes and related sauces, salsas, etc.

* tea and coffee, both caffeinated and decaffeinated; however, decaffeinated, non-mint herbal teas can be used

* peppermint and other mints

* alcohol

* fats, particularly animal fats

* chocolate

* soft drinks, particularly caffeinated, but even caffeine-free ones put carbonation in the stomach, which then pushes the acid out into the esophagus

* large servings and/or meals, which both generate a lot of stomach acid and also leave little room for the acid, forcing it into the esophagus

What is the best remedy for acid reflux?

it is better if you take natural remedies such as an apple a day. i have had the same problem for over 3 years, the doctors always give me different medication but it doesn't help for long. I have started eating an apple a day for like 2 weeks now, i have noticed that my stomach has gone better, i can digest food properly and eat everything Answer 1/2 teaspoon of backing soda in a glass of water ,then add just a touch of vinegar . this will cause it to foam . drink it quickly . the was used by my grandma she is 90 + years old and i use it also .it will kill the acid instanty. kinda like a liquid form of alkaselzer Answer That depends how severe the reflux is. Avoidance of spicy foods, coffee, peppermints, and so on certainly can help some people. Others, however, need medication for the condition, as it can certainly be severe. Starting with over the counter medications such as Pepcid are a good option; stronger medications require a prescription. It's important to treat reflux, not just for symptom relief, but also to prevent any damage or cancerous changes to the esophagus that occur when the acid comes into it. Hope this helps! Dr. B. Answer YOu also need to get a definitive diagnosis from a doctor if your reflux is severe.

Answer2: I suffered for years taking prescription and over the counter remedies. There is a lot yiu can do if you change the way you eat and what you eat. Avoid heavy meals at any one time, choose smaller meals throughout the day. Avoid foods that create acid, heavy red meats, certain carbohydrates, tomato sauce, caffeine, peppermint tea and gum. Buy Braggs or other apple cider vinegar and when you feel the symptoms, mix a teaspoon or two in a small glass of water and drink.
