That depends on how old you are, what medications you've been taking, what your level of physical exercise is, how bad the cramps are, whether or not you have any other "female health problems" and whether you are pregnant or not. If you are having a problem such as this you should be examined by your doctor. Lynn, RN

One out of ten adults is afflicted with acid reflux disease in their lifetime. Medical complications can occur if it isn’t treated soon enough. A common symptom is heartburn and it becomes worse over time. It should not be discounted.

Acid reflux is known as GERD. The esophagus’s lining becomes damaged. This is because stomach acid returns to the esophagus and builds up. Then the esophagus inflames. What results is regurgitation, heartburn, chest pain, or hoarseness.

There are effective ways to treat acid reflux. It can be treated naturally or with medication.

Over-the-counter medication is one way to treat acid reflux. For mild symptoms of acid reflux antacids such as Alka=Seltzer, Pepto Bismol, Pepcid, Rolaids, or Maalox are recommended.

Helping to control acid reflux symptoms are prescription drugs. See your physician to obtain these.

There are nutritional supplements that can eliminate the need for medication. One is the amino acid glutamine which has anti-inflammatory properties. Aloe vera is another natural supplement to use. Herbal licorice is believed to decrease the acid level in the stomach. Taking apple cider vinegar may seem counter-intuitive, but it seems to calm down stomach acid. Baking soda works as an antacid for those with normal blood pressure and for those not on a sodium restricted diet.

Specific foods need to be avoided. Spicy foods, onions, tomato based foods, fried foods, and fatty foods should be shunned. They tend to churn up the stomach acid.

Substituting smaller meals every two hours instead of having three large meals a day can be helpful. Not eating within three hours of bedtime is also a good idea.

Slowing down for meals will be a boon. To assist the stomach to relax it is beneficial to meditate or do deep breathing for a few minutes before meals.

The head of your bed can be raised up half of a foot higher than the end of the bed. This assists stomach acid to keep in the stomach.

Your lifestyle needs to be modified. Losing weight is crucial. It is optimal to treat acid reflux by not drinking alcohol and not smoking. Avoiding caffeinated drinks is also a wise decision.
