Question: 2 weeks ago I ate a salad with guacamole. For the next 2 days, I belched a guacamole taste. I felt I was getting better but still belch after meals, when I run etc. Are there recommended foods or antacids that may help?

Brief Answer:
Take a medicine like omeprazole

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have gone through the details you have provided.

Your symptoms seem to be because of Gastropathy, esophageal reflux.

An over the counter PPI medication like Cap Omeprazole 15-20 min before breakfast in stomach for next 10 days should help you with your symptoms.

Also avoid the following foods for the next few days--

alcohol (if at all consume)
Citrus fruits
limit tea or coffee intake up to two cups
avoid chocolate and mint
do not lie down for atleast 3 hours after.meals


Hope this helps
Do get back in case you have further queries

I notice that I am running slower, and weaker lifting weights. Is this a normal result of this condition?

Brief Answer:
Visit your doctor in case the symptoms persist

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Loss of appetite is not a common association incase your symptoms persist after omeprazole then I would suggest that you visit your doctor to get a physical examination.
