Thank you all for your replies.
I will be seeing my doctor this week. The thing is, i have been having irregular sleeping patterns. I was home almost 8pm after church last night so I had to wait about 3 hours to lie down. I was even watching a comedy show on tv then but some neighbors were on karaoke until midnight. Its very common in the Philippines to have neighbors singing until wee hours of dawn - not taking into consideration that its a disturbance. Its more difficult if you're in your mid forties. I was saying in another thread that my GERD and perimenopause may have simultaneously started.
What would really bother me is the feeling that food is stuck in my throat when I am lying down. I would suggest to my doc if she can perhaps change my Dexilant with another PPI. I was on Nexium for about a week, then Pantoloc for 2 days, then Dexilant for a month now. The Nexium was prescribed by our company doctor, Pantoloc by an ER doctor, and Dexilant by my gastro who also did the scope and found esophagitis and gastritis
This forum has really helped me understand more what I am going through.
Thank you all.
