I've been suffering with GERD for the past few months. It seems to come and go which is very inconvenient as I play a lot of sport and it always seems to annoy me when we have an important game.
I've been to my GP three times now and he has progressed me from weaker blockers which seemed to cause the problem to disappear initially but this week, after a week of feeling as well as I ever have, the sore throat and sick sotmach came back with a bang.
On Tuesday he prescribed me with a double dose of the strongest blockers, amoxcillin and some other medication to try and eradicate the issue within a week. If that doesn't work he wants me to have a gastroepanectamy (I have no idea how to spell this).
I've tried to manage my diet and cut back on alcohol a bit but it just seems to catch me unawares every few weeks and is always particularly bad in the morning.
I'm just wondering if anyone has had a similar experience?
