I have slight "reflux" after eating, my stomach is bloated all the time and uncomfortable as well as other things.
The "reflux" just feels like the food is coming back up but with no burning whatsoever, no heartburn either. What causes this. I do not vomit however it feels like im 50% of the way to doing so.
I have tried acid suppresion drugs which did nothing and also really high doses of betaine hcl with and without enzymes. The really high does HCL did not produce a burning /warm sensation in my stomach at all however it did cause some almost regurgatation. You are supposed to feel warm/burning when you reach max dose then back down from there so why did this real high dose do nothing.
Thanks in advance.

"You had a similar experience daz?"
I'll cut & paste my comments here (in an answer), as not all my comments above are visible (for some reason?).
...partly...i also experimented with betaine hcl without any positives...
...my symptoms/issues were different to yours tho. i had a chronic sore throat & 'lump in my throat' feeling, which was worse when swallowing. i did not get heartburn or notice any reflux after meals. the diagnosis was that i was either getting reflux during the night (silent reflux or lpr) or possibly post nasal drip (maybe both)...
...betaine hcl just use to give me a stomach ache from 2 pills (2 x 650mg), 3 or more pills would more often result in diarrhoea. & tried with & without pepsin.
I think a good indicator whether betaine HCL is helping or harming, is to go by the resultant stools (stool quality...?).
