Bye Bye Heart Burn!
 
You read it! My acid reflex has 'greatly' reduced. I've only had a couple of episodes since July 7th, 2013 and these were due to spicy foods, not over eating. It makes me very happy that I rarely have to pull out the acid controller medications when before I needed them with me for daily use.

Wahoo!!!! Acid reflux is not pleasant, I'm glad that you won't have to deal with that anymore!

Mee too :) It was such an awful thing. That constant feeling of the food not quite settling properly. Feeling sick all the time...no fun!

Oh good!!! So happy for you.

I currently take medication for it 2x a day since my acid reflux is very severe. It kinda sucks since I really love spicy food and tomato-based food but it's okay! It is totally worth ditching them to avoid those awful episodes, right? :)

That is true :) I apologize yours is so severe.

Mine is mainly triggered by over eating and too many greasy foods. I get it with spicy food from time to time but it really just depends. I so agree with that! I am so done with these episodes every day.

Great news. And your weight loss does contribute to lessening of the effects as well. Plus, from a health perspective, you've just significantly reduced your chances of moving on to more serious health issues brought on by acid reflux. Major win in so many ways!

Yay! I get bad acid reflux, too. Losing weight and eating healthy def. helps.
