My husband has been having a real bad case of acid reflux for the pass couple of days, someone told him that apple cyder would help, something about it would eat the acid from around his stomach. Not sure if that is true never heard of that before. Thanks

My husband has been having a real bad case of acid reflux for the pass couple of days, someone told him that apple cyder would help, something about it would eat the acid from around his stomach. Not sure if that is true never heard of that before. Thanks

From: From a medical perspective I believe the apple cider does not "eat the acid" from the stomach. He should take an over the conter anti-acid medication like Pepcid (famotidine) or prilosec. Also an evaluation by his primary care provider is in order. He may be dealing with gastritis or an ulcer, and may possible need a test called an endoscopy (camera is used to look at the upper GI tract). His doctor can guide him/explain the work up that may be necessary.
Best of luck. ...Read more

Pain with meals: Given your history of acid reflux, which hasn't been treated in a while, and pain that worsens with meals, you could have a gastric ulcer.
