Sometimes I burp after drinking cold water and the water starts to come back up. Also, has happened with food (both laying down and standing) GERD...?

Acid reflux: One potential cause is acid reflux which may be due to gerd but you should be seen by a GI doctor and have this checked. You may have helicobacter infection. The other consideration is that you are allergic to something in the food you are eating and that could be a life-threatening situation if not discovered soon. You really should see a doctor and be evaluated. Good luck. ...Read more

Is it normal to throw up stomach acid when you have GERD? No blood or food just, stomach acid. And what should I do drink water to wash it down?

Yes and yes: Sorry Sean. With gerd the stomach refluxes into the esophagus various amounts of gastric acid. Water will drain the acid back into the stomach. But water is not the fix you desire. You must first see your physician and he will guide you through the problem ...Read more

Gave up diet soda and have IBS and Gerd. Am On 60 mg dexilant (dexlansoprazole). Can I get heartburn from drinking iced tea? And I take my pill at night.

Gave up diet soda and have IBS and Gerd.  Am
On 60 mg dexilant (dexlansoprazole). Can I get heartburn from drinking iced tea? And I take my pill at night.

GERD : Good for you for giving up diet sodas! It is possible to have worse reflux from iced tea, but it is usually from the caffeine in the tea. If you're drinking caffeine free tea, it usually does not make GERD worse. As for the DexIlant, (dexlansoprazole) is best to take it 20 to 30 minutes before a meal. I would not recommend taking it at bedtime. Good luck. ...Read more

I drink lots of tea and usually finish a large glass just before bed, then feel it in my throat a few times before falling asleep. NO heartburn. GERD?

Possibly: This sounds like reflux of the fluid you drank back into the esophagus. This can probably be managed by avoiding large volumes of fluid just before you lie down. Try to have your tea earlier, an hour or so before bedtime. Then only take small sips around bedtime if you are thirsty. ...Read more

How do I relieve the symptoms of GERD when I drink too much?

How do I relieve the symptoms of GERD when I drink too much?

How about a lot less: Alcohol (etoh) empties rapidly from the stomach. Alcohol dehydrogenase in the stomach lining contributes to etoh metabolism. Etoh can not be stored by the body & obligatory oxidation takes place predominantly in the liver. 1 gram etoh gives 7 empty calories that provide only energy with no nutritional value. Poor diet (protein-calorie, choline, folate (folic acid) deficiency) contributes to liver toxicity. ...Read more

GERD,no;Adren,yes: Benign PVCs have a mind of their own. There's often no explanation. If you don't have any evidence of structural heart disease, medications are available to simply make you feel better. A beta blocker is the first line and if that's insufficient, an anti-arrhythmic drug like flecainide is usually highly effective.
