    Hi,
    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?

    Ask your doctor if the prescription Carafate might help. It is supposed to coat and soothe the esophagus and stomach.

    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.

    Make sure Carafate rx is for liquid, not tablets.

    I’ve read that certain herbs called demulcents are soothing to the lining of the digestive system. I have Slippery Elm for that purpose.
