Heartburn Vs Indigestion Pregnancy
Maybe...: But gerd & burping are commmon without needing to evoke worry about pregnancy. Involuntary belching after a meal is normally caused by release of swallowed gas. Magenblase syndrome is postprandial epigastric fullness & bloating, relieved by belching. Aerophagia (accumulation of gas due to air swallowing) is common with anxiety, hypersalivation from gum chewing, smoking, drinking, oral irritation. ...Read more

Heartburn issues: Short answer: avoid spicy & greasy foods, tomato-foods, mints, alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, chocolate, late night meals before bed. Long answer: distinguish acid versus non-acid causes of reflux, rule out motility problems of the esophagus & stomach, & even consider non-gi related problems that can mimic heartburn (has your heart been checked?). pH testing may be helpful.

Any dairy = reflux/heartburn. Extreme fatty food = no heartburn, no reflux. No lactose milk = acid reflux too. What causes reflux then ? Thank you.
Milk protein Allergy: If the reflux is triggered by both lactose containing and lactose free milk, then you may have milk protein allergy. An allergic reaction releases histamine. Histamine in the stomach will increase acid production and cause stomach contractions which will push the acid up the esophagus. Try avoiding cows milk products and see if it helps. ...Read more
Maybe: First line therapy would be acid blocking medications such as h2 blockers or proton pump inhibitors. If those do not work surgery to correct the hernia may be needed. Given that you are young, i'd consider surgery sooner than later as we are just learning some of the long term issues with chronic anti acid medication. One example is increased osteoporosis due to decreased calcium absorption. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I'm having symptoms such as acid reflux, heartburn, burping, gas, bloating, but can't vomit, what that could be and can you suggesting some reliever?

Relief with meds like Nexium can help control symptoms but if this lasts longer than 2 weeks,see your doc ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Could be life threatening ...Read more
Gallbladder post 1year bravo test negative for acid reflux, but upper gi showed esphogitis reflux and some erosion, what is causing if no acid reflux ?
Non-acid reflux: Could be non-acid reflux. Also, no test is perfect, and the bravo study could be incorrect. Its also important to use the bravo data to correlate symptoms to acid reflux episodes. There is also a 24 hour pH-impedance study that can detect reflux that is not acid. Ask your GI doctor about these. Hope this helps! ...Read more
