I've searched the internet and this website to see if someone has similar symptoms as me. I've been diagnosed with Acid Reflux and take 150MG of Protonix twice per day. Unfortunately, I still get what I presume are reflux attacks when eating meat. Fortunately, it is an intermittent problem. The attacks range from extremely mild to severe. An extremely mild attack is what feels like a small burp that is stuck. It takes about 15-30 seconds and the burp clears and I'm fine. On the other extreme, a major attack again feels like a larger burp is stuck in my throat. I cannot take in any food or liquid. It usually results in saliva coming back up into my throat and sometimes I do vomit. These attacks can last 5-15 minutes. The strange thing is that every time I have an attack, whether it is small or large, after the "burp" clears I am fine. I can go back to eating what I was eating before without a recurrence. These attacks have only ever happened with meat: steak, chicken, turkey and pork. It has also happened with roast beef and turkey cold cuts. My Gastroenteroligist had never heard of this condition. Anyone out there who has the same problem and done something to fix it?
