  2. 2. Dealing With Acid Reflux and Back Pain So it isn’t enough that you have acid reflux, but you have back pain too. People who are suffering from one of these problems let alone both often feel helpless and feel as though there is nothing they can do to find relief from their pain. There are solutions for acid reflux and back pain, and you just have to learn about what they are.
  3. 3. Your Options One of the best treatments for acid reflux and back pain is quite simple – vinegar. For one of the most natural and safe ways of treating your acid reflux and back pain you simply drink a tablespoon of vinegar each day, preferably in the morning, and this helps by basically counteracting the overproduction of acid in your stomach.
  4. 4. Apple Cider Vinegar Apple cider vinegar can replace regular vinegar if you wish, and you should take about a tablespoon of it before each meal. You should ideally begin to notice results within a few weeks, some after only days. It is important that you continue to take the vinegar on a daily basis however, even after you feel an improvement, otherwise your pain will most likely return.
  5. 5. Combine Antacids Another effective treatment idea for acid reflux and back pain is to combine antacids and pain medication. The antacids will work for the acid reflux by neutralizing acid in the stomach, while the pain medication will help to offer relief from the pain in your back. Because antacids are such a mild form of medicine they can easily and safely be taken in conjunction with other medication, such as back pain pills.
  6. 6. Counter And Prescription Drugs For the back pain in particular, there are multiple over the counter and prescription drugs that are available. Acetaminophen and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are the most commonly suggested, and typically begin to show results in as little as a few days.
  7. 7. Narcotic Pain Narcotic pain medications and muscle relaxants may also be used, but these should not ever be considered as a long term solution, and if used for a prolonged period of time they may actually end up making the condition worse.
  8. 8. Back Pain Should Stay Positive Anyone looking to find relief from acid reflux and back pain should stay positive, knowing that there are effective solutions available. It is also important to not self treat, because only an experienced medical professional will be able to properly assess and diagnose your condition and deem which specific treatment would be most suitable. You also should stay in close contact with them afterwards, especially the time immediately after you begin treatment, so they can make sure that your condition is improving.
