Hey guys so quick question. My doctor diagnosed me with GERD a week ago ,

My symptoms do seem to be getting alot better. No more really heartburns, jsut a bloated/gassy stomach.

My throat feels as though if there is mucus and sometimes it gets tight and feels restricted. I am forced to burp alot. Im taking prilosec every morning 30 mins before breakfast

Thats about it as far as symptoms

I was 5'7 198 2 weeks ago today i am 184

can you guys chime in and do you think that it is because it takes time for our esophagus to heal all the way?

the stomach gas/bloating isnt as bad at all, but im constantly burping to make my chest/stomach feel better.

Been praying alot and hopefully with my diet change and constant excersice i can beat this!!!

23 yr old that used to eat really bad.

Welcome to HealingWell.  I am glad you have seen your Dr.  Changing your eating habits seems to be working for you and for some of us, the symptoms of GERD are much more mild than others.  Every human
body reacts differently to medication. It takes time for the Prilosec to work and I have read comments from members who felt better after one month and others who did not feel better until 6 months.
