I have a long history of GERD. Started around puberty. Symptoms came and went over the years. I get reflux several times weekly nowadays. I’m sure the anxiety and stress over the last year or so hasn’t helped either!
My GI identified a few superficial duodenal ulcers during an endoscope two weeks ago. He called them “the beginnings of ulcers.” He hasn’t prescribed anything for them (which makes me question if he’s a decent doc or not). Do these tend to heal on their own? I’m taking DGL before meals, Gaviscon at night.... going to try some Pepcid too (I quit PPI and never want to go back. The side effects and withdrawal are awful). Thinking of trying aloe Vera juice as well.
I have a follow-up appointment in May but thought I’d ask here for any tips. Thank you.
