Hi. This isn't a reflux problem. You can first try an antacid with simethecone like Gaviscon or Mylanta but if that doesn't help you need to have a screening for an H pylori stomach infection that would need antibiotics to eradicate

I have tried gaviscon before but it has not worked. Do you believe that it is h pylori? I have some diarreah at the moment and it the rumblings feel watery. Could it be IBS?
