Suggest remedy for persistent acid reflux
You need to better understand your condition ma'am
Hello ma'am and welcome.
Thank you for writing to us.
I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help. I am afraid you have not being adequately briefed about acid reflux and what you need to do or not do in order to have better control over your condition. Here are my list of do's and don'ts:
+Drink plenty of water
+Avoid spicy food
+Avoid carbonated drinks
+Avoid oily food
+Avoid long gaps between meals
+Avoid fried food
+Avoid fatty food
+Have 5-6 smaller meals instead of 2-3 larger ones
+Avoid strenuous forms of exercise
+Make sure you have your last meal of the day at least 2-3 hours prior to bedtime
+Have 1 tablet of lansoprazole 30 mg everyday in the morning
+Prilosec and ranitidine are to be used only when you have an aggravation of symptoms, and do not treat the condition itself but only helps resolve the symptoms temporarily. So use either of these medications 15 minutes before a meal, only when you experience an aggravation of your symptoms
The reason why a pudding makes you feel better is because it is not acidic, not oily, and not spicy. I am sure you have either a spicy meal, an oily one, a fatty one or a fried one after which you experience your symptoms, and after which you have to have the pudding to make your feel better.
I am sure you will experience a difference if you follow my suggestions religiously. And if at all you do not, then you can request your doctor for an upper GI endoscopy to help rule out/confirm an ulcer, but only after you have tried my suggestions religiously for at least 3 months. Please do not hesitate to write back to me for any further clarifications, I am always here to help.
