Can acid reflux cause vomiting and diarrhoea?
You can experience vomiting and diarrhoea with acid reflux, but it isn’t common.
You might just be sensitive to the sour taste in your mouth caused by acid reflux that may have made you vomit.
Try taking over-the-counter antacids to ease your symptoms, but if they last longer than 72 hours, it’s important to get your symptoms checked with a medical professional.
What is the best diarrhoea treatment?
If you want a diarrhoea treatment that works quickly, try an over-the-counter product like loperamide (Imodium) or Pepto-Bismol.
Antibiotics may be given if it’s caused by a bacteria or parasite which you may have gotten from consuming food or water that’s been contaminated.
Diarrhoea that’s caused by a viral infection cannot be treated with antibiotics - you may want to try treatments at home, like eating bland foods, taking probiotics and drinking rice water.
