    Acid reflux?


    I'm having a really hard time swallowing my food. I drink about 32oz of water to eat one chinken breast, else i wouldn't get it down. Anyway after my meals i feel like the food is stuck in my throat and start dry heaving...it sucks don't know what to do. Any ideas?

    Go to the doc it would be several issues but regardless it'll take a hands on approach and possibly blood work.

    I don't think that is considered acid reflux. Are you gagging on the food? Is it too dry? Are you taking huge bites? Acid reflux is when the hydrochloric acid in your stomach comes back up your esophagus and burns it. I don't know what to call the problem you are having. Sorry I couldn't help in this post.

    .... Ok, in all seriousness. I'm assuming that this problem must have just recently popped up.

    Were you a vegetarian and you just started eating meat?

    You suggested that you.... felt.... as though the food was stuck in your throat, and that you started.... dry heaving.

    If the food was stuck in your throat, I would think that the force of the dry heaves would disslodge the blockage.

    I don't see how you would have dry heaves if you drank 32oz of water?

    That kinda reminds me of the tricks my mind used to play on me when it was time to swallow them nasty @ss vegtables that ma always used to make me eat.

    Well, enough with the humor. Get yourself to a doc and good luck.

    The problem did just start. I'm actually fine while eating, i drink a lot of water to help me swallow. I start gagging/dry heaving after i'm finished. I'll make an appointment with a docter. Thanks for the help.

    My Dad had the same problem, it sounds like a hiatal hernia, it may need surgery to correct. Just go to google and do a search of hiatal hernia and you'll get a ton of info.

    I had the exact same problem. Doc actually never told me what was wrong but prescribed Omeprozole (spelling), basically generic Losec....problem is gone now. If i try to back off for 3-4 days it comes right back...i used to eat alot of toast and bread and basically could not swallow it...twas scary actually.!

    Went to the "specialist" and he told me my diet was causing the problem and that i couldn't eat 4 hours before i went to sleep. He actually said that if i was concerned about protien intake that "there are things called protien powder supplements and i should use those" He was a waste of my time.

    I recommend you going to a good gastroenterologist to get a thorough examination of your problem. Endoscopy would be the minimum I would expect for this. It seems to me symptoms of esophageal hernia, or maybe another abnormality causing limitations in your peristaltic movements.

    Buy yourself some Organic Apple Cider Vineger and drink a few tablespoons for a month and see how you feel! Don't take any meds for it cause it's all a scam.
    Make sure your getting all your greens in too! Cutting back on all junky food will help a lot too!

    definately see another doc
    but i would not get on any meds for it.i think they are just harmful overall and cover up the symptoms.adjustment in diet or supplementation is in order before drugs.

    4 hours seems like a long time.how close are u eating before bed though?id wait at least 1 if not 2 hours before laying down after the last meal though.

    i would also add in some quality probiotics if u are not already implementing them,and if you are,perhaps switch brands.primal defense is an excellent solid choice.

    hows your fiber and water intake the rest of the day?

    consitpated?

    i might try the apple cider vineger. Ive used various digestive enzymes but they don't seem to do anything. I drink about a gallon an a half water a day and no constipation. I'm going back to the doc though i'm starting to throw up food and shakes now and this happens frequently. Thanks for the suggestions i'll keep updating

    Try the apple cider, probiotic cultures (acidophilus,bifidius) they promote healthy intestinal activity. digestive enzymes, a good cleasing product you may be constipated. Lots of water, green tea, and try exercising in the morning to kick start your metabolism to allow increased meal consumption. Change up your meals and eat when your hungry, sometimes force feeding ruins the meal experience, eating too much may turn you off of bulking and its hard to gain weight while puking up your food. definetely avoid laying down after your meals to prevent the formation of a stomach hernia.
