Have any of you been able to start drinking beer again without pain after you started Nexium?

I did. I found the dark beers to be a problem and I usually stick to the lighter colored beer or the "lite" beer. Dark wine is also a problem for me. Even after my TIF and my reflux is normal I the dark colored beers and wine bother me.

So before your TIF and just being on Nexium, you were able to drink light beer? Thanks for your response.

I took Nexium and drank light beer for several years. That is when I became so ill I could not drink at all, just the thought of alcolol made me sick at my stomache.

Hindsight...long term I would have never drank beer or anything. It made my GERD 1000 times worse. In fact I think that is what caused it.

Never had problems before I drank. I was a late drinker (40ish) healthy. Alcohol ruined my life. I guess I'm glad I was not addicted. I quit on a dime.

Oh, and my brother died of esophageal cancer.  Had silent gerd like I, but didn't take anything or go to doctor until it was  stage 4. Too late.  Horrible, horrible death.
 
He drank quite a bit.
