Tips for managing reflux flares?

So my reflux is getting really bad again, my throat is constantly burning and chest is on fire. In the morning when I take my medications (capsules) if I don't swallow it just right it burns for hours!! There are many times I have vomited back up my medicine it gets so bad. Bread used to help when that happened but lately it doesn't. What are your ideas or tips?

You should eat an anti-inflammatory diet, your gut will be inflamed and this could be making the problem worse. You could also try eliminating foods from your diet and judging whether it improves your condition. It can be a slow process but you will eventually figure out the foods which work best for you.

RE: Tips for managing reflux flares?

First of all have you discuss this with your doctor. Any changes in your GERD symptoms need to be discussed with your doctor. I know this from personal experience, I had my GERD under control with zantac, then suddenly out of nowhere I was having attacks every day, sometimes more then once a day. I went to see my doctor and he told me that I had high blood pressure along with GERD which was causing the GERD to act up because one of the triggers of GERD is stress or feeling uneasy, which is what the high blood pressure was dong to me at the time. However, he also wanted me to have an Endescope done to make sure there was no damage to the esophagus area because these types of constant attacks can cause this to happen, not to scare you. My best form of advice is see your doctor, and find out if maybe something else could be causing this to happen, or if maybe you need to be put on another medication to control the GERD. Also, as someone else told you, finding out what foods you are currently eating that can trigger a GERD attack is also important. For me I know that when my GERD isn't under control to stay away from Coffee, this will cause my attacks to only get worse.
