Question: Hi,
I am not sure, but occasioanaly, once a year I have acid reflux symptoms, go away soon, and mostly as constriction in chest.
I didn't have it for a year, since I have CIDP which is autoimune in its nature I tried taking curcumin in capsules.... so far for one month or XXXXXXX 3 capsules once daily with meals...
I have now one day or so constriction in ches... it is not heart nor asthma, but maybe.... can't say... can curcumin provoke acid reflux in the dose I took... I would like keep taking it since it has antiinlamatory effects.... and hope it can help with CIDP.
Thank you.

Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
Curcumin in capsules can cause gastric acidity and reflux like symptoms causing a constriction in the chest like symptoms. If you want to continue with these capsules due to the anti inflammatory effect, it is best to take these capsules after meals and after 30 minutes you can take an antacid like Digene to control the symptoms. You also need to eliminate hot spicy foods from your diet.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.

I have been diagnosed with an Ulcer right at the bottom of my stomach into the intestine. I am taking sucralfate 1 gram tablets, This morning I woke up and the pain was horrible. I took Mylanta which I ended up taking the whole bottle in a 4 hour period and the pain still wont subside. I have drank some chicken broth and had jello the pain still wont go away. I just consumed a whole roll of tums and the pain still wont go away. 15 min prior to the tums I tried baking soda and water mixture but no help there. Im now drinking chamomile tea and to yet no relief I honestly feel like my stomach is being ripped apart. What should I do every time I go to the hospital and complain of pain like this they assume I just want pain meds. and I dont I have seen 3 different gastroenterologists and no one seems to want to help. Im lost and in a lot of pain.

Hi,My mother is suffering from reflux esophagitis.She vomits as soon as she eats anything.What course of treatment do u recommend for her and is this condition treatable or can it be totally controlled by antacid medications?

I've had heartburn for as long as I can remember. I took prescription medication for awhile but it made me sick. I used to take anywhere from 5-15 TUMS in a day to keep the heartburn at bay. For the last two weeks I have had no heartburn. I haven't changed anything about my lifestyle or eating habits. It's just gone. Is there something more serious happening, or was I just so lucky to have grown out of it? Is this a common occurrence or should I contact my family doctor?
Thank you,
Vanessa
