Heartburn, Acid Reflux......

Post by AbsolutelyFab on Sun Jul 19, 2009 6:51 am

I am wondering if the new symptoms I am experiencing of regular heartburn, acid reflux and difficulty swallowing food is related to the Lupus or if it is a result of the amounts of meds I am on. I always make sure I have plenty of food in me before taking my meds and take the prednisone with milk so I don't have to deal with the nasty taste. Maybe it has to do with Sjogren's? Thankfully my appt at Mayo is in 2 weeks so hopefully there will be some answers. I've been so horribly tired and short of breath lately, too....but that's "normal"....for me at least! Rolling Eyes

Hugs,

I too have the Sjogren's , but do not have a problem with heartburn, just the very dry eyes, and dry mouth.. Hopefully your appointment will give you the answers you need!

Hi Girls,

I don't have Sjorgren's but in the last six months or more have the most horrible heartburn. I was wondering too if it is the disease or the meds. I take Zantac 300mgs but some days its 600mgs. I also try to be careful of what I eat such as fried foods, tomato sauce and I drink no acid OJ. It seems to help a little but when it hits, I wanna cry! Sad
