I was diagnosed a month ago with CD and GERD. I was admitted to the hospital for a week. I did not have any problems for two weeks after my discharge. However, I started having nausea, chest pain, slight fever and sweating at night and dizziness now and then. My acid reflux gets worse after eating particularly junk food like chips, chocolate and coffee. I don't consume them anymore.
I haven't had any acid reflux before. However, I had upper abdomen pain, indigestion for more than a year, but no typical GERD symptoms.
I have been taking Mesalamine 1.5g (2 times) and Budesonide 9mg (1 time) a day along with iron supplement tablets.
Does the medication cause GERD or make the stomach produce more gastric acid? I really want to control it before it reaches a point where surgery is the only option.
I have changed my diet and doing exercises every day. What symptoms do you have and are you able to control it? I look forward to your experience and suggestion.
