I don’t take anti acids much, unless I really need one.
My only problem is I’ve always got an ache at the top of stomach and I need to protect my esophagus to let it heal. I don’t want to go back on PPI’s because it feels like food is stuck in my stomach when I do.
Does anyone have a solution to protect the esophagus from acid whilst I’m healing with the low FP diet?JIParticipantMay 14, 2014 at 4:38 pmPost count: 180
Ask your doctor if the prescription Carafate might help. It is supposed to coat and soothe the esophagus and stomach.Norm RobillardKeymasterMay 15, 2014 at 4:22 pmPost count: 447
Drinking a half cup of dilute sodium bicarb might also be helpful for small amounts of acid in the esophagus. Say only about 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda. The idea is to neutralize small amounts of acid in the esophagus, but limit the impact to your overall stomach acidity levels. Not guaranteed, just a thought.JaemeParticipantMay 18, 2014 at 4:02 pmPost count: 348
Make sure Carafate rx is for liquid, not tablets.
