I had an endoscopy on May 21st and will be seeing my GI doc next Tuesday. As far as I know, everything looked normal except for some very mild gastritis and all my biopsies came back normal.
I spent a year on ABX for lyme and came off of them in late January because of what started out as throat clearing. Then, the throat clearing went away and then I started getting acid reflux. Anyhow I see my doctor next week and I'm not even sure what to ask and where to go next since everything appears to be normal.
I am getting very depressed over all of this and just feel like I could cry at any given moment. I've been watching my diet very closely for the last three days and nothing has changed. I am following that Dropping Acid by Dr. Koufman.
I have tried the various PPI's and none of them helped. In-fact, I felt worse on all of them with terrible bloating and fullness feeling.
I have stopped taking everything including Cymbalta that I was on which was 30 mg. I have been off of that now for 37 days. I am still taking 3mg of Lunesta and .25 mg of Xanax at night for sleeping. I've been taking the Xanax for a long long time. Although I don't think it is causing the reflux, I'm tempted to try and go cold turkey off these last two drugs that I'm on which I know isn't going to be fun.
I just don't know what to do and I feeling like I'm reaching my breaking point...
Any suggestions...I just don't know what else to do.
