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
mild hoarsness
sour taste
lungs feel burnt
mild reflux burps
excessive saliva
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
GERD diet
water and decaf ginger tea only
Carafate, aloe vera, tums, gaviscon, alka seltzer
light exersise
lose fit clothing
All my test :
3 scopes all showed mild gastritis and esphogitis(sp)
Barium swallow normal
Gallbladder ok
motility test mildly abnormal
Bravo normal
Sorry so long. I am desperate.
Any ideas if the morning stuff is acid or Bile?
Anyone else have the loud gurgling sounds?
Thank you

Hi there.

Im sorry to hear all the discomfort you have been going through. Your doctor might be having problems giving you a diagnosis because a lot of digestive disorders have very similar symtoms and some dont have test that can detect it.

I have ibs-c and acid reflux and your symptoms are very similar to mind. Except the foam that you experience in the morning. The gurgling stomach noises is a common symptoms with ibs. I get is mainly in the morning after breakfast, even if i eat something light like dry cereal, it will go crazy for a few minutes.

How have you been feeling without the PPI's??
