My symptoms started on the 8th May and I have tried Omeprazole (really bad headaches and other side effects). Then put on Lansoprazole and then finally Esomprazole (Nexium). Each one helped for about
a week, and stopped working. As of two weeks ago I am not on any PPIs and just take Gaviscon Double Action tablets, which help a bit.
I am still waiting on a 24hr PH test, but was told that the waiting list is full up until the end of October! I was not offered any other test.
I saw the gastro consultant on the 6th September and he has advised my GP to prescribe Metroclopromide, which is similar to Domperidone. He said he only wants me on it for a month due the rare chance of irreversible neurological side effects. So this is really worrying and although I am desperate to get better, I really don't need another another health issue! I was reading up on Domperidone and it seems that it is somewhat milder than Metroclopromide ... so I may ask the doc about
I was wondering if you were offered a gastric emptying test?
I really hope things improve for you and I would love to know how you get on with the Domperidone particularly, so do please keep us informed of your progress.
I too am in the UK (London)
