Hello all,

As stated in maybe one or two of my post, my GERD came back after four years, one year after being off of Losec. Not sure how or why it came back, maybe intense stress or a painkiller I was given a couple weeks ago. I have to say I don't have luck where my GP is concerned for my GERD, I often hear " what are we gonna do with you" which is pretty disconcerning to say the least. I have been on Nexium since the 26 of June, 20mg twice a day and it's a very slow progress but a few days ago I started feeling better, eating a little more after loosing 15pounds. I read in other posts, some still have symptoms..chest pain/cramps or even the famous lump and today after trying to drink an apple juice boom, the burn and all came back until my next dose was taken. I wondered often if I made too little or just too much acid, which my doctor was just too lazy to check, besides a barium test I had 4 years ago. I'm still perplexed and I eat a little more now but not full meals and I am hungry but don't feel safe to eat. I am getting better but it's slow...any feedback ? I'd sure appreciate it, thanks ! smilewinkgrin
