I am in the middle of life and death. I have been suffering from GERD/ acid reflux since 12 years. I went through five endoscopic procedure and one is awaiting for me now. I have been taking ppt medications over the years and none of them have worked for me. they gave me some relief but once it came due to dietary change it doesn't go with out lettimg me suffer. I am really suffering and I am not doing any thing other than thinking this worst pain. I am still burning while I am writing this email to you. I can not sit ,sleep, exercise and speak out even. I eliminated almost all kind of foods and end up with nothing. The doctors told me to take the meds but they don't help me out of the problem. I am thinking of going for surgery if I am a candidate. I am not sure. the way doctors perceive the problem and I is different. I am suffering but they took it simple. I can not make life at all. Please share me what I am supposed to do. I don't hesitate to do every thing in so long as it liberate me from this sufferings.
