I am still suffering heartburn throughout the day (though much less than before), even though I am on 2 prilosec's per day, as well as eating like a saint according to the Alkaline diet.
In a given day I am eating sweet potatoes, quinoa/millet, cereal w/ almond mik + bananas + blueberries, watermelon (when I feel heartburn coming on), greens (spinach, green beans, broccoli and cauliflower). I don't break that routine, and really all that I am eating falls under alkaline.
I am doing my best and make absolutely no exceptions (have been eating like this for about 5 days). Does this all mean that I am the ideal candidate for surgery? I can't believe that 2 prilosecs/day don't work for me - in the past, 1 per day was more than enough to let me eat anything I wanted without any symptoms.
Even 5 months ago I was on 1 ranitidine per day, which I had to stop due to side-effects. BUT just one ranitidine took away my symptoms completely.
