Hello there, I've never posted on this forum because I don't have gerd, but my husband does (also Barrett's.) It's under control with Prevacid and Pepcid Max. Strength. He also has a medium-sized hiatal hernia, which he claims to not believe.
(well, not literally, that's just his way.) I tell him he should be careful and not lift heavy things, but he is a stubborn guy. We are helping our daughter move tomorrow and I'm afraid he'll try to do too much. How serious is this, anyway? The doctor who diagnosed this over a year ago didn't say much.
Diagnosed: Fibromyalgia, possible Meniere's, elevated liver enzymes, skin grafting on back, arthritis, scoliosis, lumbar disc damage, sciatica, IBS, migraine headaches, tachycardia, skin cancer surgeries on face
Meds: Nortriptyline, Clonazepam, Darvocet as needed
Multivitamins, l-lysine, probiotics, magnesium, malic acid, calcium + vit. D, vit. C
Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.
