It doesn't ...: Pcos itself shouldn't cause acid reflux or digestive issues. Metformin (glucophage) may be used for treatment of pcos and can cause nausea, vomiting or diarrhea. We try to reduce these side effects by using extended-release tablets, starting at a low dose (500 mg a day) and by increasing slowly over 3-4 weeks. Some can't tolerate metformin.

Associated w/ reflux: Our stomach is one pouch with a gate at both ends. The proximal part is the part by the esophagus/ entry gate. The distal part is the exit gate. Gastric distention is the stomach being increased in size due to food/ liquid intake or gas, etc. Reflux is associated with proximal gastric distention. Eat frequent small meals instead of large ones as then "the gate" isn't so challenged/ pushed on. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How does excess stomach acid cause indigestion? I thought HCl causes the activation of digestive enzymes. Why is too much a bad thing?

Most people probably have too little acid not too much. ...Read more
