My fiance, as she's had to put up with my midnight rumblings for so long!
On a massively positive note, and without medical sign-off or diagnosis, I'm positive my symptoms have dissapeared. After I took a course of Pariet, after that I've had no GERD related symptoms at all. No chest pain, rising gas, discomfort. I can even drink / eat anything, with no negative results. Absolutely stoked :)
