Gastric acid

GERD is the back up of stomach acid into the esophagus. In fact, reflux of the stomach’s liquid contents into the esophagus occurs in most normal individuals. One study found that reflux occurs as frequently in normal individuals as in patients with GERD. In patients with GERD, however, the refluxed liquid contains acid more often, and the acid remains in the esophagus longer.

It seems to help with digestion but after a couple of hours i start to feel like i have a sore throat. I can only equate it to the way it feels when i use to get acid reflux. I dont really feel any burning sensation in my stomach at all.

My biggest complaint was the poor quality of my bowel movements. I think I was getting very sick from the lack of them and poor quality. I’m hoping that things continue to improve. HI Gemma – sorry to hear that.

The hot, burning acid creeping up your throat, putting pressure on your chest. But for those who suffer from gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, it becomes incredibly bothersome, impacting your lifestyle.

Calcium-based antacids (usually calcium carbonate), unlike other antacids, stimulate the release of gastrin from the stomach and duodenum. Gastrin is the hormone that is primarily responsible for the stimulation of acid secretion by the stomach. Therefore, the secretion of acid rebounds after the direct acid-neutralizing effect of the calcium carbonate is exhausted.

THE FACTS For people with chronic heartburn, restful sleep is no easy feat. Fall asleep in the wrong position, and acid slips into the esophagus, a recipe for agita and insomnia. As a person swallows, muscles in the esophagus move the food down into the stomach.

Am I to assume that this burning is my same ole’ acid reflux that I experience after eating, or is this from the HCL? Your blog mentions to be aware of burning in the ‘stomach’ as a signal that either one does not need to supplement with hcl or that one has ‘hit their limit’ and needs to taper back one pill with the next meal, but you don’t mention about burning in the throat/esophagus. I asked my doctor to do a ph test and she refused because she insists I have ibs she put me on 40 ml of prilosec and 300ml of zantac and it made me feel worse so i stopped taking it. I show all the symptoms of low stomach acid,nausea, vomiting , feeling of rotting food in stomach and several trips to the E.R upon many other symptoms.

No burning in the stomach or esophagus and no heartburn!!. I thought I was home-free…but 1.5 hours later, and I can feel it in my throat (as usual).
