I had the gerd condition for awhile already. I am taking medication for it though it only helps a little with the condition. I think I get more gerd when I drink some water though. I don't know what to do about it. Does anyone know how much water I should drink when having this condition. Any advice would be nice. Thanks.

@asiangal555,
I have gerd. I have never worried about the amount of water I drink.

For me, the most important thing is to eat much smaller meals with snacks in between.

Drinking plenty of water can help with hydration and digestion. Untreated GERD can radically increase your risk of esophageal cancer. But reflux can be managed.

@jasonbloom,
That was important information. Esophageal cancer is a nasty business. Reflux sometimes really needs to be dealt with.

@maxdancona,
Do you have a hiatal hernia, too? Are you getting medical attention?

Serious stuff, I hope its just a bit of reflux!

@bobsal u1553115,
Yes I have a hiatal hernia too. Yes I am getting treatment... Although it is just antacids and regular endoscopies.

There are worse problems...

@bobsal u1553115,
I have a hiatus hernia too, it’s manageable, the worst thing that happens is being woken up in the middle of the night, unable to breath with acid reflux. I sit bolt upright gasping for air, then it’s over but I’ve got that awful burning sensation at the back of my throat for the next half hour.

It doesn’t happen a lot, about once every two months, so it’s more of a pain in the arse than anything else. I was on tablets but I stopped taking them because I developed a tolerance very quickly. They’d work for about a fortnight then it was the same as before.

It’s no biggie.

@izzythepush,
Bubba. Seriously, that hernia can get bad fast. Please stay on top of it.

I’ve had it for a long time, if anything it’s got better.

If it gets bad I’ll call the doctor.
