I hear ya! I imagine if this goes on for me for another 2 months, I should get that testing as well, although I am not sure if my health insurance will pay for it.
I am getting by day by day. Went out last night with my girlfriends for dinner and had a glass of wine. Best darn glass of wine I ever had. Surprisingly I feel good today, no bad effects
Each day is different with me even back on the pantoprazole. It seems to have a mind of its own, thank you for asking. I am going to eat as bland as possible and record what I eat that triggers any discomfort or pain, so as to heal this thing as quick as possible.
I would like to try Gaviscon from the UK. A friend of mine that I work with is from Dublin Ireland, and she is going home on vacation in two weeks, and she said she will try and pick one up for me and bring it back with her. Which would be great, so I do not have to order online and pay any fees
Hopefully you get to see the other doctor soon!
