I think I've finally figured out my issue... I don't have acid issues unless I forget my PPI or eat a LOT of an acidic food. However, I am nauseated every morning and must make myself vomit to get over it. (the foamy white stuff I've posted about
previously, and the translucent goo, ending in bile.) Yuck. Not good. So in one of my email newsletters there was an article on non-acid reflux. I really think this is what is happening to me. The acid is neutralized by the PPI, but I'm still refluxing! Nothing has helped. I have a GERD pillow. That doesn't help. I don't eat for a few hours before bed. No help. I've taken Zantac before bed (in addition to my AM PPI). No help. No tight clothes. I'm a few pounds overweight, but I had the same problem since I wasn't. Really, it's been almost FOUR years of this. Every doc has blown me off :( I'm going to call my current GI again on Monday since I think I have terminology for this now.
Anyone else have this problem??? What do you do to help it? Any other advice?
