Hi.
I've gone through your query and I can understand your anxiety.

Exercise induced GERD is common & gulping air during exercise may relax the lower esophageal sphincter causing acid reflux & there by worsening the condition.

Also GERD needs lifestyle modifications as the main stream of treatment

I advice you to
-Take PPI (ormeprazole, pantoprazole or rabeprazole
- Avoid smoking & fatty foods, alcohol, chocolates, garlic, onion, coffee etc.
- Prefer diet low in protein, fat and high in carbohydrates before workout.
- keep yourself stress free as it is one of the trigger
- Try to sleep in left lateral position & also avoid recumbency 2 hours after food

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further. Take care.

Regards,
Dr. Yogapriya V, General and family physician.
