Until you get this resolved, I suggest you eat fresh papaya.
they use it in Hawaii for preemie babies and those who have digestive problems and too much acid. It works well!
Stop all dairy, sugars and artificial sweetners. And tomato based products---I know it sounds weird, but I did it and the burning actually stopped. It's only for a small trial period. You can do it. Two weeks tops. The first day for me continued to burn. By the second night, I was feeling relief.
Best of luck.
hi, have you had heart tests? if yes and all is fine then i would suggest a couple of things, first any hernia no matter what size is troubling and must be corrected, afterall its protruding through the diaphram, and thats not normal, second stay right away from apple cider vinegar, if any of the things which you are taking to fix your pain is causing your pain then its the apple cider, look theres another possibility, its called diaphram rubbing, its very similar to the earth plates and when they touch,the end result is an earthquake, so what causes diaphram rubbing? it develops on exertion, meaning your working your chest muscles to hard, cheers.
Double-check to see if you're cross-reactive to casein, some celiacs are and it can produce a lot of symptoms.
Your condition may be related with an alkaline reflux (i.e; bile or pancreatic secretions) which does not respond well to any precautions against acid reflux while result in same symptoms. Moreover, these drugs may worsen your complaints as well.. I think you should get a specific invasive test for this condition performed in university clinics.
I have not had any specific heart testing done, unless you count pulse/blood pressure testing. Mine is always acceptable, often above average.
I will check into the casein.
Thanks so much for the suggestions, folks. Any more are beneficial and I will make a list of them to mention to the specialist when I go see him.
Have you tried a one a day acid reducer like Prilosec OTC? It works better if you take it in the morning on an empty stomach. It does provide relief for my chest and back pain while I'm waiting for appts and tests to figure out why I have such bad heartburn. Sorry you're experiencing this. Unfortunately I understand.
Also avoid coffee, chocolate, alcohol, peppermint (if you don't already).
