What should I do when acid reflux flares up?
An_241293 posted:
When I get a flareup of acid reflux there is absolutely no medication that helps. I sit with a heating pad on my stomach and try not to lie down and it is incredibly painful. My doctor has no suggestions (I take a medication called protonics) But once it flares up there is just no relief. The next day I am so tired and my back hurts. I introduce food slowly and even then I can have it so bad for three days in a row. Please give me some good advice.

Try the supplement aloe. And a good probiotic

A second opinion might be in order. Stomach acid can be neutralized by Calcium Carbonate (Tums, etc.). If your problem is just acid and that medication doesn't fix it you may be suffering for something else such as a serious ulcer
