Customer Question
Hi, I've been having...

Hi, I've been having what i believe is acid reflux for quite some time. My symptoms are worstening to the point where I'm almost constantly uncomfortable. This is all the time, not just after I eat. I am very healthy and steer clear of gluten, lactose (with the exception of some hard cheeses and yogurt), processed foods, soda, etc... I workout everyday and treat my body with care. It feels like my body is pushing up air from my ribs and out my mouth. I have no burning or foul taste...just feels like im constantly burping. This is getting worse. I am a 28yr old female, 5'0" 125lbs. Thank you for your help! These symtpoms are particularly bad when my migraines act up!

Doctor's Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?

Episodic About every few weeks, lately almost one a week No nausea

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not that i can think of Thank you

I am sorry you have bad acid reflux.

have you tried any over the counter stomach acid reducers like zantac, prilosec? you can try these to see if they help

you should also make an appointment with a primary care doctor

and get more testing.

you may have to see a GI specialist for testing.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
