I have been having horrible acid reflux for about 1-2 months. I've been taking over the counter drugs (prilosec, generic acid reflux meds, etc.) with some relief, however over the last month my stomach pain seems to get worse. I've not been diagnosised with anything. I've had steady pain in center of stomach and my back. Im also burping alot and have burning sensation. What good this be? Any recommendations for relief.
Hi....when u self medicate even with OTC meds u can be doing harm in that u may be taking the wrong meds,This is true even in taking a vitamin suppliment...if u don't need it u an have too much and it can be harmful depending on which one it is .
We take PPI's and antacids when we have too much acid , BUT u can feel the same if u have too little acid and taking meds.
DO see a GI dr and get a dx...in the meantime, do try to follow a reflux diet and lifestyle tips.
