Early Pregnancy Signs and Symptoms Answer A26710
Hi,

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. Your concern is regarding the acid build up. All these symptoms are of gastritis due to acid reflux from the stomach. It is usually after eating a heavy fatty meal and sedentary lifestyle. It can also be caused by drinking too much alcohol, prolonged use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin or ibuprofen, or infection with bacteria such as Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori).

Eat small nutritious meals at frequent intervals instead of a heavy single meal. Exercise frequently and take your dinner atleast 2 hrs prior to bedtime. Also raise the head end of the bed by 2 blocks.

Take some OTC antacid like Mylanta.Continue taking the Neksium as prescribed. Also keep your fluid electrolyte balance optimum by drinking lots of fluids.

You can try conceiving as acid reflux has got no relation with conception.

If the symptoms worsen then it may be due to H.Pylori infection or gall bladder disease.You need to get it checked from a physician in that case.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care
