I my life I may have had GERD or burning in the throught maybe once a month if that if I at very salty or spicy foods. I recenlty had a endoscopy for lower abdominal pains(just as a precautionary measure I am assuming).The did find mild esophigitus.
I was proscribed protonix for 2 months. I took it for about 50 days and did not finish completely due to reading bad things about the drug toward the end.
I have been off Protonix for about 50 days now and I have GERD every day since stopping. The burning in my throught is almost unbarable at times. It happens at anytime and does not matter how I am laying or if I have eaten or not.
It does howerver get worse with certain foods. I drink so much milk and soy milk now that I buy out the local store....
Did using a ppi stopping my acid production make my body now produce more that ever? And if so when will it go back to normal?
Any help would be appreciated.
