I'm sorry to hear that your son is going through tough times right now. I have an 11 year old son so I know how it feels to be a worried mother. I hate to hear of kids so young as yours go through so much pain and misery. I'm not sure what to tell you. My first guess would have been acid reflux as your doctors had suspected which is why the zegerid was prescribed. Maybe there is another GERD medication that will work for him. I know that my symptoms with my GERD were worse when I was put on Nexium but I felt a lot better shortly after starting Prevacid (which I am on today). Has his doctor suggested running some tests to find out what it may be?
