Hi iam new here but GERD (I think) sufferer for 10 years.
Try to make a long story short. my new GI is not so sure my problems are GERD related. He took me of PPI cold turkey. His reasoning was "They were not working anyways" He thinks it may be all from IBS and dyspepsia(sp). Any ways this SUCKS.
Main symptoms are :
Burning in stomach
lungs feel burnt
mild reflux burps
The symptoms that are driving me crazy are these:
whiteish/yellowish foam in my mouth in the morning
Loud stomach noises after long periods w/o food. Sounds like a toilet flushing
Can anybody help me?
I have been doing all the regular things for about 3 weeks
Bed is up 8 inches AND sleep on wedge
no meals after 7:00 pm
water and decaf ginger tea only
Carafate, aloe vera, tums, gaviscon, alka seltzer
lose fit clothing
All my test :
3 scopes all showed mild gastritis and esphogitis(sp)
Barium swallow normal
motility test mildly abnormal
I DO NOT WANT A NISSEN !!!! SCARES THE HECK OUT OF ME.
Sorry so long. I am desperate.
Any ideas if the morning stuff is acid or Bile?
Anyone else have the loud gurgling sounds?
