Hi everyone. Haven't posted in a while because I've been doing ok for the most part managing this GERD thing. Hasn't been an easy road but have been ok.
Anyway, last weekend had lots of "bad" gerd food (chocolate, coffee, chips and pop)...and now I'm paying for it big time -- heartburn since Sunday (it is now Wednesday).
A bit of history...I am on 40 mg of Nexium per day...taken in the morning. My heartburn occurs more in the day.....seem to be able to sleep through the night (thank goodness).
Did have a down the throat 4 years ago and everything looked ok and in October 2009 had a barium swallow which confirmed moderatately severe GERD but no strictures (thank goodness again).
Anyway, have made an app't to again be referred to my GI. Just wondering if anyone else has had these problems. I guess I am starting to worry about all the damage that has been done to my esophagus and barretts.
Any advice would be appreicated
