Stomach problems from lemons?

I’ve been drinking water with the juice from half a lemon for dinner the past few nights, partly because it’s good for bloating and I’ve got my, er, time of the month, and partly because I just like the taste of it.

But tonight I’ve had an acidic stomach and while it’s not quite queasy, it’s uncomfortable. I’m starting to suspect the lemon juice.

Has anyone had any acidic stomach problems from lemon juice?


  1. Not me. If I have water with lemon juice (or water with cider vinegar, which is supposed to be good for you), then I always add a little manuka honey, which is known for its healing properties.

  2. Maybe I should try cider vinegar. It's supposed to be good for acidic stomach.

  3. I can't do lemons or cider vinegar. Anything that's acidic.

  4. I had heard cider vinegar was supposed to balance pH? Is that not true?

  5. Nope but I live on Prilosec daily due to an acidic stomach daily.

  6. Yuck! I can relate. I was living on Zantac and hated it.
