Running aggravates acid reflux? (Read 642 times)

    Have you heard of this?  I have a colleague who stopped running a couple of months ago, saying that running was too violent and was causing his acid reflux.  Do you have any experience in this area or suggestions for him?  Yes, he has been to the doctor.

    Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject. - S.J.

      For any runs of 45 minutes or longer, i really have to throw down a Zantac.  Otherwise, it can get kind of painful.  The Zantac works though. 

        I've had a couple bouts of gastritis during which running set off really bad reflux. I took Pepcid before running and that worked for me until my stomach healed.

        Go as long as you can, and then take another more step.

           Is he eating and drinking fluids before his runs? I stopped drinking until 1 hour after eating. No more reflux. Big grin

          Run until the trail runs out.

           The pain that hurts the worse is the imagined pain. One of the most difficult arts of racing is learning to ignore the imagined pain and just live with the present pain (which is always bearable.) - Jeff

              Good point: wine before running leads to reflux while running for sure!Roll eyes Haven't done that in quite a while now.
