    I have had indigestion today as well after eating a tuna sarnie for lunch but I took some paracetamol and that sorted it.

    I think yours needs looking at as it has gone on for a long time now hasn't it?

    Re: Indigestion or ??

    Hi Honeyp1e, I suffer with acid reflux. When I have a bad bout I double up from 20mg of Omeprazole to 40mg. What dosage are you on? I double up for a couple of weeks when things are bad and it works for me. If Omeprazole isn't working for you I would ask the Doctor for a different PPI. I was on lansoprazole first and that did nothing for me, Omeprazole works better for me, my main symptoms are acid coming up into my throat which burns it and in bad cases it has caused gastritis. Different PPI's work better for different symptoms.

    I also take my Omeprazole 30 minutes before food as this makes them work better. I have my bed elevated as recommended by Doctor as it helps to stop acid coming up in the night. Never sleep on your right side or tummy as this aggravates symptoms. Avoid tea, coffee, fizzy drinks, citrus fruits, chocolate and tomatoes as they are the main triggers.

    Hope this helps and hope you get well soon

    I was given a list about potential triggers as I used to get bad acid reflux on a regular basis. Processed meats are one of the potential triggers. What triggers symptoms off for some might not for others but I thought I'd mention it as you've had ham.

    I would try a very bland diet for a few days but do try and eat as not eating makes things worse.
