    Default burning in stomach

    Hi all I have been having some burning in tummy. I think it is hunger but doc said it is the acid in my tummy and to continue taking prevacid. well yes i have missed sometimes and have taken it regularly now and still feel the burning unless i eat something. my diet is this..

    protein shake am and lunch time..snack if needed which is cottage cheese or small fruit or yogurt...then dinner

    in am i am hungry all way up to snack. so i have tried to have snack in am like for breakfast then around noon i want something again burning in tummy. so i have been having more. i would chose smart things though maybe some veggies or salad. doc said i would never feel hungry again if that is true what is this burning in tummy and why does it only go away if i eat something? prevacid isnt helping

    Have you changed any medication like diabetic medication lately or other meds sometimes that can be a cause but most probably its the surgery but it should settle.

    If you are only taking 15 mg of prevacid you might want to try taking 1 am and 1 pm. It's a 24 hr med but has a period of time it works better than other times during the day. Taking 2 per day split up helps. I've been on 30mg a day for years and expect to take it for life. Not ideal but I'd have had to with or without the surgery.

    Otherwise, if you aren't getting at least 80 oz of liquids in, that may help, along with avoiding acidy liquids, meaning citrus flavored anything, and watch your choice of SF sweeteners. Some make acid worse. Other thoughts.... if you are using milk in your shakes you may have become slightly lactose intolerant. Try soy, almond or coconut milk. And, take your calcium supplements mid morning. They may act as a bit of an acid buffer.

    Acid Reflux and Heartburn are the only side effects I have had from my surgery.. I was prescribed Nexium but it didn't work. I started taking over the counter Zantac 150 and it was better but I get the most relief from eating Tumms. I eat a good 6 a day usually after my meals. If you have it at night you can try a swig of Maalox before bedtime. It coats your stomach and will give some relief. Also, I noticed that a lot of things I was drinking caused Heartburn. Crystal Light for one. I had to eliminate it from my diet. I can drink the natural Crystal Light but the regular stuff??? no way... But that was just me. Also, some of the Gatorade G2 drinks would give me extra heartburn. I also agree with Grace on the milk deal. I gave up regular milk and drink an almond/coconut blend. I love it!!

    Also, usually when it starts burning it means its time to eat. There is nothing in your belly for the acid to eat so try munching on some crackers with peanut butter. That has helped me too.....

    Good Luck!

    Maybe you are hungry. I had my surgery on May 6, 2013 and I still experience hunger pangs.

    I thought the hunger pains would go away after the surgery. Am I wrong?
