I will write a little about my problem here and I hope that someone could read it trough and help me answer the questions below.
I am pretty sure I have GERD. The last 2-3 weeks I have been feeling like there is something "pressing" up in my throat, and kind of a "heat sensation" in the lower parts of the throat (I guess this would be heartburn, right?).
I remember when I was about 15, and I thought I had IBS so I went to see a doctor and they did that really uncomfortable test where they shove a camera down your throat. I remember that there was some physical small problem with my throat, can't remember what it was called though. Now, I am almost 28 and live abroad (China). I workout pretty much (although I haven't been doing much of it the last 3 weeks though), and when you work out, you need to eat allot, and there are stuff like protein shakes and gainers that I hope I will be able to continue taking.
My week can be divided in 2 types of days - Training days, and non training days.
A training day, my my meals will look something like this. Breakfast: 3 boiled eggs and 6ooml of gainer After training meal:800ml gainer. Lunch: Spaghetti o sliced pork. I put everything in a big bowl of water and let it boil for 10-15 minutes, and then its ready to eat with ketchup. For dinner I might order some take away food like dumplings, rice and meat, noodles or something.
The non training days look almost like the training days. The only difference is that i dont drink any gainers on days I don't train. The last couple weeks there has been allot of mcdonalds and kentucy fried chicken etc. also.
1. Do you think that this could be the GERD? I will go to a doctor tomorrow and see what they can find out.
2. How does GERD medicine effect other medicine?I take stilnoct for bad sleep, and also some gingko bilopa for a better life in general.
3. For how long time will I have to take the GERD medicine?
