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 went to a GI doc because I was having sharp/brief pain in the gallbladder area (this has happened sporadically for past 2 years) then I started getting odd bloating/full feeling in Dec with increased pain. Ultrasound showed gall bladder was fine (this was 3rd ultrasound), but liver was possibly slightly enlarged. My liver enzymes were slightly elevated-but next test came back normal and I don t have Hep C. Upon chatting with doc, she thought I might have acid reflux issues and gave me antacids-my symptoms actually got worse but it did help with what I had initially was wheezing at night (which is why she suspected acid reflux)-though now even that has returned. NOW I feel so full/bloated that it s actually hard to breathe or sit--after a meal or anytime really whether I ve eaten or not...I am so absolutely frustrated and feel that I m being made to do a food diary to see if something triggers it when anything triggers it and nothing too...it s just continuous. As a note, this started in Dec and I started with antacid meds just in Jan...and the breathing issues have been about 2 weeks now...so driving me mad and I m actually short of breath talking even at times...I talk talk talk to the doc and it s lets follow up in 6 weeks...6 weeks of trouble breathing or eating even? I m stunned...and work in the medical field myself...and I m just still stunned and not knowing what to do right now...
