Constant Acid Reflux

Updated on August 29, 2010

Constant Acid Reflux

Are you having constant acid reflux? Do your acid reflux symptoms never seem to stop? If you have gone to your doctor and have been treated for gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD as it is called and your symptoms have not gotten better but have actually gotten worse, you may have to return for a different prescription for your condition. All acid reflux disease medicines are not created equal. The good thing is that most diagnosis of the disease are accurate and accurately treated. One important thing of note though is that some people who are diagnosed with acid reflux don’t believe that what they are experiencing is actually acid reflux. My mom was diagnosed with it and she was sure that what she was feeling was not acid reflux. She described a lump in her throat that never seemed to go away. When the doctor said acid reflux, she was perplexed because she thought it was only the regurgitation of the acids in your stomach and while that is definitely the most obvious symptom of GERD, the constant feeling of something in your esophagus is the most common symptom. That lump in your throat never seems to go away, hence, constant acid reflux.

Now, if it’s not treated properly, the disease can actually irritate the lining in your esophagus. Part of your treatment though is changes in your daily diet or intake of foods. It wouldn’t be fair to go to your doctor complaining of constant acid reflux symptoms after receiving and abiding by the directions of the prescriptions and you haven’t done your part of disciplining yourself not to eat heartburn inducing foods or foods that are hard for your system to digest. This is what causes the biggest part of acid reflux disease. There are actually people who never required a prescription or even a trip to the doctor because they simply became disciplined enough to avoid the foods that don’t agree with them. If you have however, done your part and are still experiencing the horrible symptoms of GERD, let your doctor know and he or she can try you out on another medication. Be aware of the side effects also and keep your physician informed about what’s happening with you. Constant acid reflux is very uncomfortable but with the right prescribed medication your symptoms will decrease and with a good and healthy balanced diet consisting of the right foods for you, you will be comfortable once again.
