Endiku, I forgot whether or not you had said you were tested for GERD.
Because I'm reading about what can happen if a persons digestive functions don't work the way they are supposed to and it mentions that the symptoms of GERD don't just include heart burn. They can include hoarseness, trouble swallowing, coughing, gagging, and nausea. Which can lead to more serious symptoms and complications such as weight loss, ulceration, bleeding in your esophagus, anemia, and a higher risk of adenocarcinoma of the esophagus.
It also says that large meals and foods such as chocolate, citrus fruits, caffeinated beverages, fatty and fried foods, onions, spicy foods, garlic, and tomato based foods can increase the reflux in GERD.
And also, how is the gluten free food working for you?
