I've been suffering from GERD for 15 years now. I'm a Crohnie and I developed gastritis, duodenitis and finally gastrodudenitis. I'm on a lot of Crohn's meds. Lately, 2 weeks ago, I reached a stage where I can't digest food w/o taking Gaviscon. I try to avoid food so that it doesn't hurt my stomach. I feel that food stays more in my stomach and I have a loss of appetite. It's not a burning sensation; it's simply pain. Also, it is not that gastritis dull pain I know. I have also been on Nexium 40 mg double dose for more than 6 years. Zantac is not doing me any good any more.
Any replies are highly appreciated.
