    acid reflux/heartburn

    for the last week i have been having horrendous acid reflux for no reason which has caused me to lose my appetite but no weight loss and miss numerous days off work (boss very unhappy)
    i really dont know what to do , as im already on omeprazole and dr has prescribed me gaviscon which ive already near used 1/2 the bottle

    i dont eat fatty foods, drink caffine but i drink alcohol but nothing in particular seems to make it worse, i had a meal and drinks with friends yesterday and was fine

    i have been feeling very stressed out, panic attacks horrendous etc etc

    hoping somebody somewhere can give me advice or point me in the right direction as i must be drinking litres of water to no avail

    thanks in advance

    I post this all the time... Look at the FODMAP diet. Track what you eat and when as well as any negative reactions. Reduce or eliminate those foods. There are some OTC PPIs like Prilosec, Prevacid etc. as well as chewable remedies and liquid relief.
