My heart & lungs were tested & tests came out normal. About a month later i had an endoscopy & they found that my upper stomach & esophagus was slightly irritated & also found that i had h pylori. I went on anti biotics for the h pylori & it is gone now.
I’ve been given steroids and antibiotics to knock it out but it always returns. Lately I notice I only cough after eating, or if I recline. My doc says its acid reflux.
I have been gluten free for five years. I ate something in late July that I later suspected to contain gluten after having my normal gluten reactions of diarrhea, brain fog, and anxiety. However, after 12 days of diarrhea and upper abdominal pain (stomach area just below the junction of the ribs) I saw multiple medical doctors.
It also prevents bacteria in the intestines from migrating up and colonizing the stomach. The esophagus enters the right side of the stomach. As a result, the lower esophageal sphincter sits above the level of stomach acid when you sleep on your left side ( 55 ).
When I have dinner at 7pm I still feel full when I wake up the next morning. A week ago I started apple cider vinegar before every meal, but this is bringing back the lump in throat and it is starting to make me nauseous. I have also had problems with alternating diarrhea and constipation for a long time and doctor put me on Align probiotics, but this made me very nauseous too and I stopped.
I do not burp or pass gas much and recently i had a crohns flate which maybe was brought on by the antibiotics. As part of trying to treat the cough I’ve taken Prilosec but it did nothing. Two Tums after I eat helps but I don’t want to take Tums all the time. Could this be from low stomach acid?
I went through a period when I felt severely bloated also, everyrhing I ate cause me to feel ill nearly. THEN I CAME ACROSS AN article on Lauren Gertseen’s website on how to naturally increase stomach acid.
I am determined to heal this problem because I hate asthma medicine and acid reflux of course. In 2 weeks at my next doctor’s appointment I will as for the colonoscopy.
In 15 years of herbal practice, this simple remedy has worked well remarkably. BTW, the vinegar works well as a probiotic. For the arthritis, your body is probaly acid.
I’m going to watch the gluten and dairy also. This was a great site thanks to all. Oh yes and had the C T scan, found nothing.
Pumpkin seeds are the most concentrated, non-meat food source of zinc. Most foods that are high in zinc are animal foods such as beef, lamb, crabmeat, turkey, chicken, lobster, salmon and clams. Zinc food sources aside from meats are dairy products such as yogurt, kefir, cheese, nutritional yeast, peanuts, beans, wholegrain cereals, brown rice, whole wheat bread, and potatoes. Vitamin C, E, B6, and minerals such as magnesium can increase zinc absorption in the body.
So, what are the theories? The likely situation is the food you ate is being fermented by bacteria and the byproduct of their feast is gas.
I had gone to doctors and even had contrast dye tests to see if there was a blockage somewhere. Because I’m healthy and a good weight generally, the doctors just dismissed my symptoms or offered to write a prescription for Prilosec, which didn’t seem right.
Symptoms again disappeared. Endoscopy revealed gastritis, but, no real reason for my sickness other than my poor eating habits, such as, fried, fatty, spicy and processed foods. Late night snacking isn’t ideal, but sometimes you gotta eat just. If you have to work late, get up early, night munchies or just have a case of the late, these foods will put your hunger to bed without ruining your sleep with indigestion.
