Another lovely day in the neighborhood....my stepdaughter recommended protonix? anyone here have good luck with that? Had weird heart palpitations on prilosec although did ok on it years ago. Should I ask my doc for this?

And....she told me yogurt is probably making my nausea worse....now I have no idea what to eat???
so far, can eat raisin bran and feel ok, power bars, wheat thins, sometimes saltines, and, I had thought, yogurt. But she said the dairy was a bad idea?? any suggestions?

Also recommended I go to the health food store to get a digestive enzyme thing called PB-8...Sounds like a good idea but wondering what anyone else's experience might be???


thank you, such a great site.

Good Morning,


I am sorry to read you are having the nausea problems. I would really like to see you talk with your physician on a plan of care. It feels to me like you may be trying to many things at one time and will not be able to tell what is working and what is not.



A diet designed to prevent or reduce acid reflux is usually easy to follow. The basic food groups of cereals, vegetables, fruits, dairy products, and meats can be eaten with only a few limitations. Each person is different and many people tolerate dairy products. You can try eliminating it from your diet and see how you do.



As far as which mediction is best for you, I defer to your physician on that one. Welcome to HealingWell.



Kindly,



Kitt

Thank you Kitt.
Have been on the "GERD" diet now for more or less ten years, although not always compliant (was drinking sodas, had caffeine).

My doc at the moment is unavailable as he is waiting for the results (biopsies) of the EGD to come back and said I could "eat whatever I wanted", general a "reflux diet".

The reflux sx have not been that bad. But the nausea has been awful. And the "reflux diet" does not seem to apply at the moment, although of course, as you said, hard to know at the moment. Food that I had been tolerating just fine are now not fine at all, i.e., rice, game meat, salads (wo tomatoes), cheese, eggs,no veggies, bread for sure...and of course no fats at all, no oils no mayo no foods with fat in them (cake), no fish (had eaten tuna but not anymore).

I had found that the yogurt was pretty helpful and I felt better when I ate it. But it was suggested that dairy was likely making my nausea worse...

So, until I get another appt with my doc, which I guess is still a week or two away, I was wondering what to eat, and if anyone else had tried PB-8? or protonix? Those were suggested to me and as I am unfamiliar I thought I'd just ask.

I do live in a very remote area (Montana) so not like we have tons of resources that an urban area might. Connecting with others even this way has been very helpful.

Thank you for your help.

Lila

Lila,


Montana, big sky country. I threaten from time to time to move to Montana just for the peace and quiet that I picture there. I am in Minnesota. We have lots of lakes. I am so happy to know that you feel connected by joining this great forum. We are here to support and help in anyway we can. turn

If you feel better eating yogurt, then eat yogurt... that's my motto.

I don't know how to help your nausea, sorry.

Peace and quiet we do have. Medical care? not so much as other places!
Minnesota is lovely too tho, and you do have lots of lakes for canoeing!
I bet yours don't have bears!!

Thank you, Joy.
Yes, at this point I'd likely eat the mousepad with a little lemon pepper.

and yes, this forum is fabulous. My family, needless to say, is not riveted by a recital of my symptoms, and does not really "get" how painful/scary/frustrating this is.

But you folks do!

Misery loves company! :D

I felt like munching on the computer after my surgery. That diet was tough!

My family gets tired of hearing my complaints, too.

Hi Lila the digestive enzymes will do no harm and might do some good so worth a shot I think. I'm with Joy if it doesn't make you feel sick or give you symptoms eat it.

well, i am now on a very restricted diet but for past few weeks no sx so am very pleased.
not doing digestive enzymes as it does not seem related to my problems at this moment, may do in the future.
i found the very simple diet, no food, or very little, crackers, after 7, really helps
am not doing any exploring or changing as I am happy with a reduction in sx
and yes, eat a ton of yogurt; i like it and i get no sx that i know of
of course, the frustrating thing is that i do not get sx right away, it may take awhile then i have to backtrack and figure out what i may have eaten. so i am not varying anything at the moment
hope you are feeling better!!

Yes I know what you mean about the backtracking it's hard work! I'm feeling a lot better since I've had my gallbladder out. Just have a few minor nausea and indigestion symptoms when I overdo the fats and sugary foods.
