I usually hang out in the Lyme disease, or Lupus, or Chronic Pain forums....but right now I'm having the WORST acid reflux I've had in a long, long time.
As you can see from my signature, I do take Prilosec, but now it's just as though I'm not taking anything! My esophagus is on fire, and has been for days. I suppose I'm going to have to see my doctor, but I recently moved 200 miles from Southern CA to the Central Coast region and left my old gastroenterologist far behind (I guess I could hop in the car and drive 3 1/2 hours to see him though, if I have to).
I also take prednisone, but have recently dropped the dose from 10 mg to 5, and was not having this much GERD trouble before.
I'm also having trouble with nausea and general aversion to food....good for weight loss I guess.
Does anyone else relate to sudden increase in acid reflux? Any suggestions other than go see the doctor?
