Everything I eat or drink feels like indigestion and it's ripping my body apart

Expert:  Dr. K. replied 3 years ago.
Ok, so this sounds like some very severe acid reflux. Problems like this can also be related to an ulcer or even your pancreas. You will want to see your regular Dr who will likely refer you to a gastroenterologist, a stomach specialist.

In the meantime you can try some over the counter remedies to see if they work.

Maalox or Mylanta liquid 30 cc a half hour before each meal and at bedtime. This helps neutralize the stomach acids.

Over the counter Zantac as directed. It may take up to two weeks to notice any effect.

Hope this helps.
