I've suffered with GORD since I had my gallbladder out back in 2013. I wasn't diagnosed for 18 months, just thought I had a persistant cough but now on Omeprazole. I've been on it for a while now and would really like to come off them but at the moment I still need them. Obviously loosing weight will help but I'm finding exercise hard as it makes it worse. (walking seems to be the best option but i have a 4 year old and she cant walk far or fast but we have a little trot)
I've read somewhere that drinking warm water with fresh lemon first thing in the morning can help, and actually it does, just wondered if anyone had any other tips for coping with it without using medication, especially at night. I know what to avoid, chocolate, caffeine, spicy meals, fizzy drinks, alcohol, basically anything bad and not to eat late. ( I've had a slip over the last two weeks and I'm paying for it now).
Doctor says loosing weight is the best cure. Easy said than done. The top of my oesophagus is constantly swollen and the only time i get relief from the lumpy feeling is when I eat so I've been caught in a circle the last few years.
Has anyone who's lost weight seen any improvement?....
