Most common triggers:

- acidic fruits and veggies (tomatoes, oranges, onions, peppers etc)
- mint as it relaxes the esophageal sphincter
- high fat foods
- anything spicy

food that was a trigger for me:

- all of the above
- white bread
- pasta
- oatmeal
- chocolate
- tea + coffee
- cheese

I used and abused Tums like nobody's business. Then moved onto zantac before finally getting a procedure done to rid myself of the main cause of my acid reflux (stricture). Now I take proton-pump inhibitors and am symptom free. WONDERFUL!

good luck!
