Hi beemer! I had one of my better days when I had my probe. Make sure you eat all the rubbish you can! Lots of coffee, chocolate and spicy things! smilewinkgrin When you go to bed, don't forget to lie down flat! This was when my reflux really showed up as bad as I was refluxing for hours while asleep (until it finally woke me up)!

I've just realised I've missed you going to bed! (I'm in the UK). Hope you get the results that you want! Good luck!

I had two BRAVOs for acid. The first fell off in the first 15 minutes and the second found NO acid in 48 hours. I'm beginning to think that I don't have Acid Reflux but probably Bile Reflux. I saw a surgeon who thinks I probably still need a Nissen. Hope this helps.

I understand your frustration as it never fails you can be in pain for days and when you need the sx to be there you are all of a sudden cured.
A miracle.  idea
Good Luck and let us know how your test turns out.

I twice had the monitors placed in me and, to my surprise, the results confirmed GERD.  I'd been experiencing what various specialists thought were a myriad of problems, but none of that was confirmed.  GERD was the culpret.  I had no heartburn, ever.  I was on 2-40 mg. Nexium twice a day.  At first Blue Cross/Blue Shield refused to pay for that quantity of medication, but after confirming the test results and my file, they paid for it.  I slowly, over a 4 year period, backed off Nexium completely and now only take it when undergoing particular stress (such as recent surgery).  Until the monitoring/probe the Psych. folks were going to place me on some strange drugs because they thought the root of my problem was psychological.  Best wishes for good results.
