Hye im female 22. I loves spicy food, everything i eat must be spicy (but not extremely). I only eat extremely spicy food when i reallyx3 crave for it but not that often (about once or twice in 3-5 months). And im used to be a bulimic for almost 10 years. Lately, i realized that whenever i eat something spicy, my chest feels burn inside even when the food is not that spicy like char kuetiau or just muruku. I want to know it’s that a sign of gerd or gastric? Should i stop consuming spicy and high acidic food including coffee?
