  Hi and welcome to the GERD forum.

What Is Sour Stomach?. Sour stomach is a common name for acid indigestion or GERD.

If u had the flu this can trigger a flare, but u also have Chiari, and many with Chiari do have issues with GERD, it can be med related or even another related condition like EDS. Those of us that also have EDS have hiatal hernias and these issues can cycle much  like Chiari symptoms do....stress or what we eat can also cause a flare.


Keep a journal of what u eat and how u r feeling and see if u can locate the triggers.

Then avoid ur triggers and see a Dr to find out the root cause.

See the Health Pages for tips on modifying a diet and lifestyle to help reduce GERD symptoms.http://www.medhelp.org/forums/top_answerers/333
