yogini Posted September 5, 2005 Report Share Posted September 5, 2005 About 3 weeks ago, I started getting really bad reflux and gas. I have had this many times before, but it has been under control when I take Prevacid as needed. The funny thing is that I drank a lot of diet soda and carbonated drinks for years and decide to give it up about 6 weeks ago. This should have helped my stomach issues, not made them worse. In fact I have mostly been eating really bland foods and drinking only water and broth for the past month and my stomach hasn't really gotten better. I've barely even had Gatorade, because it is acidic. And I've even been taking Prevacid every day which I usually don't.I did start eating yogurt recently, and I am wondering whether that is the problem. I ate it yesterday, and a couple of hours later, I felt naseous, had gas and then got diarrhea. Someitmes I gag right after eating the yogurt and I have the same problem with milk, but I am OK with other dairy products like fro yo and cheese. Is it worth getting tested for lactose intolerance, or should I just avoid yogurt and milk? What kind of tests do they use? My POTS symptoms are in check for the most part, and I don't want to do anything to cause a relapse. The only other change that I have been making is to reduce my beta blocker, and I am wondering whether this has made me hungrier and caused my stomach to produce extra acid. This doesn't explain the other symptoms, though.Would appreciate any thoughts on this...Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
