I'm a Crohnie and for 3 days in a row I have had excessive saliva mixed w raw red blood. I have had GERD for 14 years and I know that excessive salivation is one of the symptoms of GERD. I saw my GI on Wednesday and he prescribed me: Nexium 40 x 2, Zantac 300 mg x 2 and Gaviscon advance x 3. But the blood is still there. It's not bleeding but I'm nauseated and do vomit and have chest pain and pain in my back corresponding to my esophagus. I know that this all caused by my GERD. I switched food to rice pudding and Ensure only. Is there something I'm missing?
Any advice will be highly appreciated.
