I have been diagnosed with Acid refluc since 2003 and it is just getting worse and worse I have been taken Nexium, Prilosec, and Zantac all at different times and I feel so sick that I'm vomiting frequently I have horrible stomach aches where Im Huntched over pain in my abdomen, Diarrhea, Gas and heratburn and headaches all the time. I also am having a hard time paying for the meds so sometimes I can't afford to take them because Im also on other meds for anothe sickness. My Gi wants to have a camera go in through my belly button and check my stomach esophagus to see what the real problem is I have an appointments in July to see Gi to discuss same. Can anyone shed some light I'm tired of feeling sick and not being able to really eat anything because I feel so sick all the time. Thanks Guys please give me some advice. PR Glo

I totally feel your pain.  I have had horrendous acid and bile reflux for the  past 2 years, it has really ruined my life.  It seems the healthier I eat the worse the acid is (I dont get that at all).  Try a no carb diet for 2 weeks, no cheating.  See if your symptoms dont improve.  Sometimes the over consumption of carbohydrates is the leading cause of acid reflux.  Maybe you have a hiatal hernia?  Maybe you have a candida yeast infection, or an h-pylori bacteria infection in your stomach.  These are all things which could possibly be causeing your acid reflux.  I know for me I have really bad gastroparesis and an esophageal motility disorder, which is causing most of my reflux.  Also, get your galbladder checked.  Have your GI run a hyda scan to see if your galbladder contracts properly.  Sometimes a weak glabladder can cause a lot of acid to come up because your food isnt being properly digested.  I really hope you feel better, I totally know your pain I suffer everyday from this horrible disease.  God Bless
