is it ok to drink decaf tea if i have acid reflux?

My doctor is pretty sure that I did with a condition called GERD is an old term for long, which means that I suffer from severe reflux. I'm on a diet low in fat, sugar free, caffeine-free diet and I miss my cup of tea. Is it safe to drink decaffeinated tea? I heard that the warm temperatures also stimulate the reverse flow so all information would be very grateful. I was diagnosed with GERD and Barrett esophygus about 10 years ago. Since then I have a cup of decaffeinated tea loved almost every day. My doctor also recommended. I've never had the influence of temperature problems with my condition. Good luck. The only real possibility that diet greatly contributes to GERD is gastroesophageal reflux disease (American spelling sometimes esophagus with an "E") that are affected by weight loss itself. Caffeine has no real power anyway. To be honest, practical, lifestyle changes often anyway, and most doctors simply prescribe PPI inhibitors, proton pump by omeprazole once daily. This keeps most of the patients without symptoms, sorry I can not answer your question, but I googled the same question and the question came because I am taking a PPI, proton pump inhibitor and it works for me, but I have noticed that when I drink decaffeinated tea next morning I woke up sick and burpy (I drink tea at night only) I like to drink tea or coffee with caffeine so I drank, I will try again in a few days and see if it happens again, if it does, I can say to decaffeinated tea for me .
