Hello all!!!
 
after 2 yrs of being on the nexium 1x a day for the past week i've been on nexium 2xs a day - its almost non-stop with the reflux - had ultra sound today for liver, kidneys and gall bladder - they found kidney stones but they really dont think thats whats causing the upset - so on sat i'll be going for my 2nd endoscope - what fun
 
hope everyone is doing well - i'll keep y'all posted!

Christine,


Sorry to hear you are having problems but hoping your endoscopy will help you find the reason.



Take care and sending good vibes your way.

Hang in there. It's not so bad as long as you're sedated.

Have you had the other tests? Momometry? Barium Swallow? BRAVO or PH test?

things went well - still feeling the effects of the anesthesia (luv it tho - best sleep ever!)

the dr couldn't tell me much - she saw no inflamation - which i thought she would since i had that back drip feeling - she took biopsys we'll get those results back in 7-10 days so until then i'll be on the nexium 2xs a day

what are the other test that joy mentioned?

Bravo or Ph test, Barium swallow, mamometry pressure test. I also had a stomach emptying test. Not everybody gets one of these.

The mamometry test is not pleasant. They put a tube though your nose down into your stomach. It measures ten perfect swallows of water on a computer, and they pull it back out. I gagged the whole time.

hey guys!

yesterday i was sent home from work and im home today - im having anesthesia withdrawl - they gave me a demeral cocktail which triggered my vertigo - tomorrow i should be ok to get back into work - but this is getting on my nerves

does anyone suffer from vertigo and gerd? did you get it around the same time? has your vertigo been triggered by any procedures that you had from gerd?

I do get spells of vertigo, it's been all of my life. Most of the time it's when I'm sick with my ears.

I get vertigo along with my GERD, I agree Droper its almost as if The Body is an engine, and the technical manual on how to fix it is still being written.
