Hi, your symptoms could be due to reflux. However the best advice would be to see your GP. Any new symptom should be investigated. We are all individuals and we can share symptoms but that does not mean the cause is the same.

I do think you should report it to your GP. He/she probably won't do much to start but it'll be on your records for any follow up. Best to have these worries checked. I take Ranitidine for reflux, bought at supermarkets as either their own brand 'Indigestion tablets' or branded Zantac. Please see your doc though. P

This sounds a lot like reflux do you take anything for it? If not go to your gp and explain your symptoms hopefully they will be able to help you

I used to only be able to take a couple of bites of breakfast without feeling yuck and sometimes I couldn't eat any meal without feeling yucky but now I take ranitidine which helps a lot I can eat breakfast and all my meals without the yucky feeling

Good luck hope it gets sorted x

You could try taking some Gaviscon or Milk of Magnesia to see if these alleviate your symptoms. If either of them does, that would back up the reflux suggestion. Your GP would be able to find the best meds to treat it , whatever it is.
