Acid Reflux?

Acid Reflux?

Has anyone noticed that they've been getting acid reflux frequently years post diagnosis and trying various treatments? I'm on enbrel and it's worsening. If so, any advice for the longterm?

I cut out oily, spicy food, and caffeine. I was told it's okay to pop the Tums/Rolaids as much as you want. I usually take 3 at a time. 😊. Talk to you doctor. The worse times for me is at night, so I started taking Nexium before bed. It also helps to sleep with your head elevated and/or on your left side, that way the acid doesn't go up the esophagus.
