Hi there. Looking for someone who may have some sort of idea what's going on.
I work with a senior couple 12 hours a day. Occasionally my lady client has a nasty attack of what we were told is acid reflux.
She has no symptoms of acid reflux. ie: not burning sensations or pain what so ever. Tums, calcium etc does nothing for her.
What happens is she suddenly has a pressure in her abdominal area and start spitting up a thick , clear fluid. We call it slime attack
because honestly that's what it looks like. I've tried to research this myself. I've asked acid reflux sufferers and no one seems to know what This could be. I can hear it inside her when it happens. It's like she's struggling to bring it up. I just feel so terrible because there is nothing I can do to relieve her when this happens. It usually happens when she is eating. She is never able to enjoy a whole meal. Lucky if she eats 1/4 :( I'm very interested to hear what anyone has to say about it. Looking forward to it. Thanks
