So this is my first post on here, little background about me. I am a 24 in shape strong young man. I have suffered from heartburn/Gerd since I was 16. I've taken everything and have tried everything it seems like. I had a scope done in 2011 showing a hietal hernia, gastritis, and a small ulcer. I was prescribed aciphex and It worked great for 2 months, I switched to 40 mg of Prilosec, it worked great for 2 month. Then I found 40mg of nexium which worked and I was I. It ever since until January 2014. Nexium was no longer covered by my insurance thanks to the affordable care act. Went from 25$ copay to 283$ a month. No way I was paying that, so I went to Prilosec again. I am now taking 80mg of Prilosec and 300 mg of Zantac to just get by. I know I shouldn't be on these meds for long time use but I can't afford surgery with my new healthcare now either. Any other ideas or anyone else experience this great obamacare. I've tried it all, from tums to licorice root, from fennel seeds to aloe juice, from low carbs to low fat diets. Just wondering looking for help and trying to save up for tif surgery.
