Default Anyone have acid reflux?

I'm wondering if, as I lose weight, my acid reflux problem will disappear so I'm curious if others have this problem and if losing weight is helping?

I've been a little reluctant to quit taking my nightly purple pill because the acid reflux is so uncomfortable if it hits me at night. I suppose I won't know if my 35 lb. loss has helped unless I don't take the medicine one night and see what happens.

Thanks!

As long as I eat right I don't have that problem. Chocolate and any kind of soda can bring it on.

Same with me. If I am eating really junky food, then I get acid reflux really bad at night. I will literally wake up gagging in the middle of the night and need to eat Tums to feel better. But since I've lost weight, and if I don't eat in the evenings, I'm fine.

Yes, losing weight and eating right makes it all go away for me. I have spent some miserable nights after making bad food choices or just eating too much of even the wiser choices.

Thanks! I'm going to give up my medication tonight and see what happens. I will, however, have Tums handy on my nightstand!

Mine has gotten a LITTLE better - but I still have to beware of trigger foods - choclate, tomato sauce, etc.

Hope you did well!

I chickened out. I think I've developed a mental dependency on the medication. Okay, I WILL try it tonight!

I tried a night without a purple pill, and, voila! No acid reflux. I was so tired I even forgot to put one on my nightstand in case I woke up and needed it.

One less pill to take--I'm so happy!

Default CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!

I know a lot of medications are necessary but my father (bless his heart) honestly believed that the side effects were often worse than what they treat. I understand completely how happy you are to be 'off' a medication! Again, congratulations!
