I've been trying to keep track of how my GERD waxes and wanes. On a scale of 0-5 where 0-5 are low-to-high levels of symptoms I experience, I feel I get patterns such as these:
1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 5, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 5, 5, 1, 1,1,1,1,5
So basically I never really have full relief from the symptoms. However, I get good days: the 1s .. not so good days: the 2s .. and some days are bad: the 5s - and this happens quite regularly (so its not occasional flareups .. but bad days show up once or twice a week).
Again, I can not tolerate either H2s or PPIs. On the "1" days, I feel I should not go in for the surgery while on the "5" days I desperately want to. This has been really confusing and frustrating.
