It seems to me that the doctors should be able to answer a few questions about acid reflux.....I get blank looks a lot and different answers depending on which doctor, nurse, or pharmacist I happen to be talking to!!
I know beyond a doubt my problems started when I took 5 rounds of antibiotics in 3-4 months. I had heartburn for the FIRST time in my life. I cried!! The pain was that intense. I called my doctor and she was like, yeah, take some zantac, of course you will get heartburn with antibiotics. Now two years later.....I feel like I am playing a game. My general practitioner and digestive disease specialist just send me back and forth...When one can't figure it out, he tells me to go see the other. So .....I basically medicate on my own. Frustrating.
What kinds of reasons have your doctors given you for having this mess in the first place? I know if I keep going to the doctors and THEY keep failing to find out what is wrong, it will all of a sudden be labeled "stress" on my part!! Ugh!!
My husband thinks I need to get up earlier and exercise. Would that help or should I just slap him?
