I've posted my story before but basically I was diagnosed with GERD by accident when I had an Upper GI for something else. I wasn't treated since I had NO symptoms but 13 months later got an endoscopy showing errosive esophagitis. I was treated with PPI's for 3 months and have been off of them for 2 weeks now. My GI believes that my GERD was caused by the SSRI medication that I was taking, and also that it could have stopped me from being able to feel much pain, as they can sometimes act as an anagelesic (sp?).
So, I am two weeks of my PPI and experiencing rebound effects. Mostly a sour stomach and some reflux (actually, I've never had these symptoms before I got off the medicine!) So...I am wondering how long approximately I can expect these symptoms to last.
I have to go back for an endoscopy in 3 months and I don't want any reflux I may be having now to affect my results in 3 months. I don't want to rush back onto a PPI if I don't need it.
Any ideas about rebound?
