Acid Reflux

Acid Reflux

Is anyone having bad acid reflux? I eat tums...try to eat small meals. I belch on an empty stomach and full stomach and in between....ugh. Ideas? I am tapering down on prednisone and I am also on methotrexate. I have only been on methotrexate for 6 weeks.

I’ve been better with the bland diet for a couple weeks. No caffeine spicy food greasy food. No food after 4pm. Raised head of bed. No sodas chocolate. Probiotics and digestive enzymes. Hang in there 🤗

Yes I do get reflux. There has not any one food I can pin down either. At least the Tums are good for your bones. Just don't over do them. It can cause probkems. As if RA isn't enough we can't even enjoy eating😩

I take lansoprazole or omeprazole daily, which helps to reduce symptoms. Only difference is one has to be taken 20min before food
