I have had years of stomach issues and have Hashimoto’s and possibly Raynauds. I currently take about 6-8 HCL per meal and 1 with Fish Oil twice a day….the other night I took 6 HCL with my meal and then took 2-3 more when I had another piece of meat.
your stomach acidity, be mindful that what you do eat isn’t high in acid. It doesn’t matter how many bananas you eat per day if you follow them with a fried breakfast and a large coffee. If you have adjusted your diet accordingly and you are still struggling with excess stomach acidity or acid reflux, contact your health care professional for advice – there are medications available that can help. in moderation and adopt a low acid diet to relieve your symptoms.
5. Indigestion? Cooked veggies and soupy dishes might help
I remember about two weeks ago that about a month before all of this started happening to me i had went to the clinic because of throwing up & i thought i was pregnant, it turned out that i wasn’t. The doctor told me he wanted me to try taking my birth control pills earlier (which ive been on for over 3 years now). He also said i might have a stomach ulcer but i didn’t pick up the pills he prescribed because they said they could cause heart problems & that because he was just guessing i saw it unnecessary.
I stopped eating meat and I only eat vegetables and juices and I amsome better but I still have the same problem. Any help is appreciated. I’ve got SIBO and amine and glutamate intolerance with symptoms controlled fairly well a low FODMAPs, low amine diet, but my gut symptoms are worse since I tried to introduce FODMAPs following a course of Rifaximin.
The pH levels low enough to begin dumping the food into the intestines aren’t. If you’re having symptoms such as acid reflux, heartburn, burping, gas, bloating, or nausea after eating, then it’s very likely that you have a stomach acid issue. People with acid reflux are generally advised to avoid eating within the three hours before they go to sleep.
I’m scared for her to try the baking soda test. She frequently vomits. Acid reducers make her symptoms worse but the doctors say it’s necessary to protect her esophagus. It’s very frustrating not knowing which way to go. I have had a cough with mucus since 2005.
I am curious about the low acid because I vomit and very little bile or stomach content comes up before it’s empty. Meat eating causes horrible nausea and takes days to digest. Hi, i hope i can get a reply from someone. I just turned 19 this month & about 3 months ago i was laying in bed one day & gradually throughout the day i started to feel like i couldn’t breathe more & more. I ended up going to the hospital that night & they put me on protonix for stomach acid because they didn’t know what was wrong with me.
I should say now that most of my symptoms relate to my bowel. I have few symptoms of indigestion – no discomfort or pain, no nausea, no bloating, only some funny hiccuping at times, and I can eat any amount of protein and fat and feel fine. I had bad heartburn and reflux and was often tired after eating no realizing laying down after eating made things worse. I had coughing from the acid and reflux coming up. Felt like i had asthma.
- Everytime I try to eat something small (piece if cantaloupe), the pain in my stomach radiates to my chest and is unbearable.
- Low stomach acid doesn’t necessarily mean the food isn’t being passed on down the digestive tract or that it isn’t being digested at all….not efficiently and the nutrients are likely not being absorbed just.
- Use good quality sea salt, which stimulates stomach acid production.
- I’m tired of being another statistic and I’m determined to get my life back.
- I have eliminated gluten and dairy in my diet and drinking a prebiotic additive in my water as well as taking milk thistle and I can feel a huge positive difference.
Many of the medical community are doing such a disservice to people. If I had continued their treatment I would have ended up in the hospital or worse probably. Bless my regular family MD though who is recommending that some of her patients try it now. I have LPR, straight up (oops, a pun). Am I low or high acid?
Problem is that my number one symptom prior to dietary changes was heartburn so it’s confusing what is causing what. All this is making me very stressed and I have a lot of anxiety about making the reflux worse in fear or developing Barrett’s. This anxiety is undoubtedly making things worse. I feel that I have indigestion issues and this got much worse after I took Pepcid for a week.
All day I burp repeatedly. And if I fall asleep after eating before 4hours i’ll wake up choking. I dnt know what to do since I dont have medical card. Im 22.
I can’t sleep anymore. Feel as if I am in constant state of pre menstrual syndrome. Could it be pancreas??
It will be a pressure usually, ache or tight band of pain on the left side of your chest. It can then spread to your neck and jaw and make you breathless up, faint and sweaty. Indigestion (confusingly called “heartburn”) typically starts in the upper abdomen and moves up behind your breastbone.
Eat these foods to help your digestion. This is the worst of all late night snacks – a huge dinner will simply weigh down on your stomach while it produces an excess of acids to digest.
