I am trying to treat my LPR without the meds as I get side effects from the PPIs/H2s:
Side effect symptoms: Tingling of the nerves / muscles all over the body (legs, near the knees, arms, back) - followed by body ache, knee pain etc. On some other PPIs I get insomnia, light headedness, nausea etc. I am a fit individual who used to workout regularly and always ate healthy and on time. So, changing my diet and lifestyle is not really helping me much .. as there is nothing much to change (except to avoid tomatoes, choc, coffee and alcohol).
One theory is that some sort of nerve related injury or inflammation has caused my LPR and for that I am taking neurontin and (sometimes) klonopin - but it isn't helping me that much (after about 6 weeks or so .. I still have LPR symptoms .. which seem to be going down a bit .. but not by a whole lot).
I am curious to know if anyone has successfully treated their LPR symptoms without the meds? Everywhere I look on the internet, 2x / day PPIs seems to be the only known "cure" for LPR!
