Coughing up stomach acid

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing up stomach acid


Avatar f tn This happens in some dogs when they first wake up, the stomach is empty from not eating all night and there is a buildup of acid. You can try an experiment to see if this is what it is - try feeding your dog a small snack late at night or, if you wake up during the night, give her a cookie or two.
1285120 tn?1273751607 I take kapidex, Bentyl , Alkaline Drops( acid neutrilizer) and Carafate. Recently I have been throwing up stomach acid , have a foul taste in my mouth with nausea and coughing up stomach acid too. My Pulmonologist said that the acid reflux can back up into your lungs if you are overweight with a Hiatal Hernia which I am. My Gastroenterologist does not think at this time that I require surgery to fix my Hernia.

Avatar f tn My third pregnancy I would wake up in the middle of the night coughing up acid, it was horrible!!!
Avatar n tn I read about some test where they put a tube from my nose to my stomach to monitor stomach acid, but if that reveals that stomach acid is the problem, then what do I do? BTW- I had a colonoscopy and endoscopy about 18 months ago and it was normal. Any suggestions are appreciated.
Avatar m tn Actually a tickling at the back of the throat (acid throwing up and then trickling down), throat closing up, gasping and all opening up again can be due to reflux. You raise the head end of bed while sleeping and see if it helps with early morning choking. The other possibility is gelastic seizures. These are seizure triggered by laughing and include fainting, shaking, stony appearance, head falling back, proper seizures etc. You need to consult a neurologist regarding this.
Avatar f tn Her symptoms could be attributed to GERD, (Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease), where the acid contents of the stomach come up into the esophagus. Since medications don't seem to be helping much she can try life style measures: Take frequent small meals. Eat dinner about two hours before sleeping. Elevate the head end of the bed. Keep a food diary and note down what aggravates your symptoms and avoid them. Ensure to maintain optimum weight by regular exercise.
Avatar n tn I took it for 10 days and it helped significantly. It is designed to lower the amount of stomach acid you have and therefore stop in the pressure building up and the burping which i completely get can be sometimes sickening and uncomfortable. My best suggestion is to go to your GP and get them to feel your stomach, to check to see if your bloating or if it is another problem and your gas is ust a side affect, like mine.
Avatar n tn Barbara533 Have you tried an antihistamine? rushtyyyyy green and yellow flem should not be coming up from allergy unless it is stomach acid. Usually allergy is clear mucus. I'm not a doctor but I wonder if it is a bacteria infection. Sorry I don't know the correct answer. Maybe the doctors are correct too. I just personally haven't heard of colored mucus from allergy. Allergy can cause mucus that can lead to bacteria infection too. See another doctor.
Avatar m tn ve been to the doctor and they prescribed Nexium, because of my stomach acidity. I used to wake up in the middle of the night choking because of the acid reflux was so bad. I raised my pillows and have alleviated this issue. That being said, after a regular meal, my stomach is extremely full (today it was just soup and two Grands biscuits) and it feels like I have to throw up. Sometimes I'll start coughing because of this and actually throw up.
Avatar f tn The women flossie6 is suffering from sweats (possible fever), fatigue, coughing up brown phlem and mild stomach upset and you tell her she could have an inflammatory bowel condition. I think you need to read the post again. She should see her family doctor first for possible infection related to the brown mucus. As a doctor I am sure you know what brown mucus is caused from. My son has had this many times when he has had a severe infection of either his sinuses or chest.
Avatar n tn However, for the past few weeks I had missed my meds (family problems), and last evening I ate just before bedtime. During the night I woke up, unable to breath, choking and then started coughing. I had aspirated stomach fluids. Today my chest is a little sore and I'm still coughing. Should I see a doctor to have my lungs checked? Thank you.
Avatar m tn GERD / Acid indigestion are often caused by slow stomach. When the stomach slowed down there is a build up of food and once you had mucus which was probably because of recent cold, it does not have a way to get out normally through colon. So what happens is that it tries to come out through mouth. One way to get this problem resolved is to take necessary steps to empty the stomach through detox.
Avatar n tn Nine months after recovering from terrible acute bronchitis, I am still coughing up small blobs of thick sticky, pale yellow mucus all day. My allergist says my asthma is under control, my sinuses are more or less clear, and I recently went to the cardiologist for a full workup. All that's left is GERD, but I'm unsure how to proceed because I hardly have any other symptoms.
Avatar f tn I have been coughing up phlegm daily for around 7 years. I've tried antibiotics several times without any success. I've had x-rays and mri scans but nothing showed up. Around 18 months ago my voice started to change. I was then prescribed omeprazole 20 mg capsules which make a slight difference and my voice returned to normal. But I still have to tap my chest and often have to get someone to hit my back to dislodge the phlegm which is milky white/ beige globules and quite a lot of it.
Avatar f tn she brings up some food with clear liquid. It would depend on when she had a coughing fit it could be minutes after or maybe an hour. acid reflux is what im thinking too she had it as a baby. No nausea she only vomits when she coughts. I dont believe any change with bowel habits she wont tell me. She does say the top portion of her stomach hurts (shell point to it) Any insight you can give me will be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn It seems there is phlem stuck in my throat all the time and sometimes it is much harder to bring it up. When I went to ENT specialist, I was told that it is connected to Acid Reflex. I do not feel any other symptoms of Acid reflex. Should I get second opinion. I also saw some blood in the phlem when I brought it up. I was diagnosed with IBS about 2 years back.
Avatar m tn For the past 3 weeks, about half the times I have eaten I have coughed and gagged for a few minutes. I get a feeling in my throat that makes me want to cough. I cough so hard that I gag and feel like I can't breathe. It all started back when I had a virus (100.4 degree temperature, migraines that wouldn't go away with pain meds, and the coughing/gagging). The other two symptoms have gone away, but I still cough and gag after eating.
Avatar f tn heartburn and GERD are not caused by too much stomach acid. They are caused by too little stomach acid and bacterial overgrowth in the stomach and intestines. Therefore successful treatment is based on restoring adequate stomach acid production and eliminating bacterial overgrowth. "This can be accomplished by following the “three Rs” of treating heartburn and GERD naturally: Reduce factors that promote bacterial overgrowth and low stomach acid.
Avatar n tn My mother has been coughing constantly for the past 3 to 4 months and brings up a lot of clear phlegm, she has disturbed sleep because of this and the constant coughing is wearing her out and makes her really tired. I feel so helpless to see hear suffering this way.
Avatar n tn I would try a pill of beatine HCL with food, if it causes you a warm sensation in stomach that means you do not have low stomach acid, but if it doesnt, then you have low stomach acid. low stomach acid and acid reflux have basically the same symptoms and are often misdiagnosed with each other.
Avatar f tn I was left with a really bad cough, sometimes coughing non stop.. I went to an ENT doctor and he told me I had Acid Reflux, which is the reason am coughing so much and bringing up mucus. I am on Pantecta now for over three weeks and still coughing.. Is there anything else I can take to stop this coughing.. I am really tired and frustrated.
Avatar m tn The other possibility is that you are coughing up blood. This can be due to bronchitis or pneumonia, lung cancers (especially in smokers), tuberculosis, bronchiectasis, pulmonary embolism, or fungal and other infections. Discuss these possibilities with your doctor. A comprehensive investigation is required keeping all the points in mind. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
