Running/heartburn

So what can I do to reduce the heartburn and aftertaste from lunch? I eat lunch around noon, and typically start my run about 5:15. About 1/2 way thru I get some horrible heartburn/aftertaste. Do I need to drink a bunch more water during the afternoon to wash the flavors away?

I have the same problem, and it is related to my acid reflux. You might want to get that checked out by a doc too. I was in pretty bad shape, and didn't know it. Now I run a risk of esophageal cancer. due to the damage that was done. like you, I just got heartburn a lot after eating, and especially when running or laying down. This would happen no matter how long ago I had eaten. The only thing that finally got me to the doctor was a sharp pain in my stomach that ended up being an ulcer that has taken the better part of 2 years to heal up. Mind you, I am only 33 years old right now.

I only rarely have the heartburn unless I'm running. Stairs make it even worse, so I got to think it's the bouncing of the stomach that make it present. I used to ALWAYS be able to eat and go right into a workout/run. In fact, being insulin dependent it was more of a necessity.

Hadn't thought of green tea. I'm going to try to work that into a routine about 2 in the p.m., after the stomach has done some work on the lunch.

Definitely see a doc. You may have GERD (reflux disease), which should not be left untreated. The medication is pretty easy to take and very, very effective.

As has already been mentioned, untreated heartburn can lead to a number of complications. Don't self-medicate - heartburn can also be due to a number of other things. Don't get alarmed, but you really need to see a doctor, in order to understand what treatment you specifically need.

My doctor told me that teas can increase the incidents of acid reflux...we have to look at what cause GERD before we start making suggestions guys....

The medication is similar to what you take with OTC stuff. As a matter of fact my doctor told me that I could continue to take Prilosec OTC to combat my symptoms with no ill-effects. For me 1 pill a week works great...see your doctor tell him your symptoms and then let him make a diagnosis (esp. since you are diabetic). Good Luck and keep working out!

GERD has a multitude of causes. The primary one is incomplete clearance of regurgitated material.

My point is that while GERD seems likely, there are several causes of heartburn that the physician needs to rule out. Heartburn is not necessarily the same thing as GERD, which is why we tell people to go see a doc.

So basically, we agree

Does OP eat a lot of acidic foods like red sauce, etc. I used to get acid reflux in law school and i ate a lot of spaghetti (cheap food), and after i cut that back big time i stopped having an issue. Getting diagnosed is best, i just hate when people rush to start taking medication

EXACTLY.

I see this happening when I go into the Dr. office.

Me: Doc, I get this nasty taste of my lunch when I run before dinner"

Dr: Quit running



During the week I eat nearly the same thing for lunch every day. Madras lentils over cubed tofu, cheese on top. Sometimes I sprinkle some garlic powder (not salt) on the tofu.

I don't have any symptoms just walking around. It's only when I run, so I don't see it as all that critical that I see the Dr.

You haven't described the lunch you eat. If you eat a large lunch, you will not have emptied your stomach completely. Try eating a small lunch, then after your workout, eat a normal supper meal. If you get hungry in the afternoon, you may need to have a small snack.

I always found that the best workout was in the morning, before eating anything, about an hour after an early cup of coffee.

Hmm I do my run right when i get home; usually about 5-6 hours after i had lunch but i don't get that. By then i feel really empty. Sounds like ur a vegetarian like i am...not sure why ur taking so long to digest ur lunch.

I ran this past Saturday morning since my son's swimming practice was at 7. No problem there. Morning runs during the week just are not an option. I'm at work no later than 6:30, I ain't getting up earlier than 5 to go run in the dark.

Not a vegatarian, but tofu is such a readily digestable protein source (for me at least). I loves me a medium rare slice of filet, especially now with an Arrogant Bastard!!!

Now that we've switched to baseball season, I'm not doing the stairs and distance running as much, it's more the sprints to chase down a ball, or be a runner for the infiled practice. I haven't noticed it on the baseball field.

Don't mean to bring back up a 2 month old topic, but I either read or heard from somewhere that heartburn can also be an indicator that you're not drinking enough water. You should be pounding that stuff down. I carry a 3-Liter jug with me (I typically won't drink all of it unless I do a heavy day of running) to track my water consumption. Being a runner and not drinking enough water is a nasty combo.

I went through a period, about this time last year actually, of acid reflux, but mine was stress related. I was constantly running every-every other day but never had the issue/pain during my runs. I went and saw my doc, he smiled and said I was fine, gave me 3 sample pills of an acid reflux med (can't remember what it was) and was fine afterward. I also made a point to lower my stress.

ANYWAY, I also recommend NOT to drink Green Tea while being extremely active. I always found myself puking on my runs when I drank green tea. Just stay away from caffeine and spicy foods.

Now that it's 2 months later have you improved any? What changes have you made?

so being a nurse, here is what I can recommend: eat small frequent meals. Don't lie down after you eat, and eat dried crackers, avoid food that has high acidic such as tomatoes, or drinking lemonades. Avoid exercising after eating. Avoid alcohol (yes, if you want the pain to go bye bye), and coffee.
GERD is a serious complication. You need to check with your doctor first. Most likely he will prescribe you a PPI (proton pump inhibitor), along with some Antacids, and H2 receptor antagonist. Don't take medications without seeing a physician first.

Coffee has been the reason why my ulcer will not heal quickly. But dammit I will murder about half a dozen people in the mornings if I don't have my java...

Drinking a good amount of water is one of the most basic natural remedies for heartburn you can think of. It washes away the acid burning and balances the acidity out

To prevent heartburn or acid reflux you can drink at least 4 pints (+/- 2 liter) of water spread over the day.

Eating an apple, or sometimes even just a part of it, can really relieve your heartburn. It works basically the same as the vinegar part, where the good acids help you stop the heartburn

It varies again from individual to individual to which variety works best for you, experiment a bit.

I just got put on Dexilant for acid reflux/heartburn. Fantastic drug. So far it is working better than anything else I have been on.

Eat a light dinner first, wait, and then run.
