Hi Meena, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
I Would like to know few things here?, so that i can suggest you better,
1.) What is your height and weight?
2.) Do you have Burning sensation in your chest?
3.) Do you have Difficulty swallowing?
4.) Do you have chest pain?
5.) Since how long do you have this?
Lax LES is caused by a weak Lower Esophageal Sphincter which cause the Gastric Acid
to return to the esophagus
and cause burning sensation.
You should be consulting a Gastroenterologist so that he can examine you and do a Endoscopy
, Esophageal motility test, Chest or upper abdominal X ray
to confirm it. Once confirmed, the treatment will depend upon the cause.
In addition to this, you have to bring in some lifestyle changes,
1.) If you are overweight
, lose weight.
2.) If you smoke and drink, QUIT.
3.) Avoid hot spicy foods.
3.) Eat healthy nutritious balanced diet which should include fresh fruits and Green Leafy Vegetables.
4.) Avoid tight fitting clothes.
5.) Eat smaller meals, six times a day.
6.) Drink plenty of water.
7.) Don't lie down after a meal.
8.) Elevate the head end of your bed.
Kindly don't panic and it is not at all serious. You will have to take antacid
drugs as directed by your Doctor. Your Doctor will examine you and if suggest a Surgery to reinforce the lower esophageal sphincter which is called Nissen fundoplication
. Your treating Doctor will know better.
Stick to your treatment plan and go for regular follow up.
