I'm concerned about my health again. My GERD is REAL bad. I've had GERD for many years. I take AXID, which I think is an H2 inhibitor. It is different than the proton pump inhibitors...the purple pills. I can't take the purple pills as they give me migraines. I've been eating much less meat lately and eating a lot of vegetables, a little more fruit, still not eating bread much, but have added sweet potato and rice. So, I guess my carbs are way up. Could that be causing my GERD to flare? Last night was horrible. I usually have symptoms after dinner, but yesterday I had some after LUNCH and then I was afraid to eat dinner, so I had saltines and hummus and that bothered me. HELP! What has helped you prevent GERD and then feel better once it acts up? Many thanks!!! PS Any thoughts on this new concept that we don't have too much acid in our stomachs, but too little????
