Hey Solarpowdered, can I help with some information that I post at the moment- I have to ask you somethings please
1. Did you -Do- the ESOPHAGUS transit barium swallow- TEST, where they make you drink barium and shake you and see IF it passes back Up to your esophagus?
2. Was the barium visible in your esophagus?
3. have you done endoscopy, biposy, and so forth? they can check for hpylori in the biopsy, and what are the results?
The point is I want to know if your reflux is from a defective sphincter only, OR a defective sphincter + hpylori or hpylori OR hpylori without defective sphincter?
If it's only hpylori without defective sphincter, you can take antibiotics and probiotics to heal the hpylori and reduce the reflux alotttt!!! so there is Hopppe here!
But if it's a defective sphincter with or without hpylori, then I think you probably have to consider surgery to fix it...i think the forum talks alot about the current surgeries...
GERD is ruining my LIFE at the moment too.
I HAVE NO HPYLORI, but I HAVE a very defective sphincter/... valve.
Please be strong. Wish you all the best:(
I'd consider finding out the cause and solution if you want....
