Reflux and Uralyt


Reflux Symptoms and Causes

Your esophagus is the tube that carries food from your mouth to your stomach. Gastroesophageal Reflux disease (GERD) happens when a muscle at the end of your esophagus does not close properly. This allows stomach contents to leak back, or Reflux, into the esophagus and irritate it.

You may feel a burning in the chest or throat called heartburn. Sometimes, you can taste stomach fluid in the back of the mouth. If you have these symptoms more than twice a week, you may have GERD. You can also have GERD without having heartburn. Your symptoms could include a dry cough, asthma symptoms, or trouble swallowing.

Anyone, including infants and children, can have GERD. If not treated, it can lead to more serious health problems. In some cases, you might need medicines or surgery. However, many people can improve their symptoms by

  • Avoiding alcohol and spicy, fatty or acidic foods that trigger heartburn
  • Eating smaller meals
  • Not eating close to bedtime
  • Losing weight if needed
  • Wearing loose-fitting clothes

After taking Prevacid for the past 12 years for severe acid reflux (my upper sphincter does not close), I seem to have developed some resistance to it, as it only works for about 16 hours now instead of 24. This made sleeping difficult, so I started

Been on drug since 1/20/11. er mid feb w/diagnosis of acid reflux; as time went on i have had excessive gas, leg/ankle swelling; loss of appetite; dry cough; sleepiness; lack of energy; out of breath; docs say heart failure---this is an 85 yr old man

Breathing easier but acid indigestion and reflux. Cramp. I stopped taking the seretide evohaler and the terrible acid continued but got easier. The cramp has gone, thank goodness as one muscle would cramp one way and the other would cramp the other,

Burning in stimach/acid reflux

Citracal Calcium + Dwith Genistein 1200mg per day, 3 days in and excessive abdominal gas. Acid reflux also flaired back up. Since previous back injury did not associate back painwith Citracal, just assumed I had done something

Reflux Clinical Trials and Studies

Treatments might be new drugs or new combinations of drugs, new surgical procedures or devices, or new ways to use existing treatments. The goal of clinical trials is to determine if a new test or treatment works and is safe. Clinical trials can also look at other aspects of care, such as improving the quality of life for people with chronic illnesses. People participate in clinical trials for a variety of reasons. Healthy volunteers say they participate to help others and to contribute to moving science forward. Participants with an illness or disease also participate to help others, but also to possibly receive the newest treatment and to have the additional care and attention from the clinical trial staff.
