Will Acid Reflux Irritate The Bladder

Answer

There is no literature on this. I have noticed though that I often have issues with urinary irritation at the same time I'm having more issues with reflux. I've figured out that for me it's related to two things: constipation (straining and the bulk put pressure on my urethra), acidic foods - these can increase the acidity of the urine as well as increase stomach acidity. You may want to consider tracking your reflux and bladder symptoms along with foods and/or constipation or any other symptoms you notice and see if you can find a pattern.
