Acid reflux after eating pineapple. Why?
Hi, I am 22 years old female why do I experience acidity after eating pineapple in any form. I have burning sensations in my chest. It happens to me only after eating pineapple no matter if I have pineapple in any form. Am I overthinking or it is common? If not then what causes acid reflux after eating pineapple?
@glenys Hello, no you are not overthinking, Pineapples are highly acidic. Citrus fruits also contain a high level of acid and may cause reflux symptoms. Acid from your stomach can move back into your esophagus, causing discomfort. Doctors generally recommend avoiding foods high in acidity, such as pineapple. If you experience acid reflux more often then it is better to avoid it. Thanks!
