I am a 28 year old male. I have had severe acid reflux and stomach bloating three times in the past 12 months. It started suddenly each time. There is no prior symptom. This is the third time and it has been going on for a month. During the first time, I treated myself with antacids (Calcium carbonate) and a two week cycle of Nexium with probiotics. When it came back for the second time, I had Pepsin and Betaine hydrochloride, probiotics for a month. It worked very well. Five months later, it came back for the third time now. I have had no acid reflux, but just bloating. I am taking Betaine HCl and Pepsin, but it is not going away. I will start to bloat right after my first bite of food. Even drinking water too fast will make it. The bloating is bad. I have severe bloating and pressure for hours after I eat. I think my stomach is not producing any acid. Could it be like that?
