I was reading through your journal again and came across the page when you asked about
restech exams and PH impedance exams.
Since I have finally done both, I have found that my exams do indeed differ.
My bravo exams that I had have found that my demeester score is
1.4 my first time and
2.5 my second time.
My Restech showed that I had
1 event upright
144 event's supine
Ryan score of 32.
My Ph impedance exams
my first time showed...which is off meds
43 total refluxes
35 non acidic
Low to none event's during the supine, mostly an upright refluxer
My second ph impedence exam on 40mg of omp plus zantac at night showed
55 total refluxes
47 non acidic
More reflux indicated during supine, but mostly upright reflux.
Not sure why there is such a vast difference between my restech and my PH impedance exams. My restech exams showed that I'm mainly a supine refluxer, whereas, my PH impedance exam should that I'm mainly a upright refluxer....Also, I'm not sure why there is a 100 event difference between the exams...
As for the bravo capsule...I consider it useless. Doesn't detect aerosolized reflux, non acidic reflux, and it doesn't detect whether it's coming up or going down...so eating food can look like your refluxing on this exam.
Did you noticed any difference between the three exams when you had them done?
