SilentTears, I went through the exact same problem you are going through. I was in so much pain and it hurt so badly to eat (really anything) that I was feeling like I constantly had to vomit. It seemed like even stomach acid didn't want to stay where it was supposed to stay. I have been diagnosed with GERD, Barrett's esophagis and Crohn's in my stomach, small intestine and terminal ileum. I am currently taking prilosec for the GERD. Right now my spasms are returning and I'm having to take my pain/anti-spasm medicine too. I think I'm going to have to ask the dr about
something different for the GERD, something stronger!
Please know that things will get better. You really should try and eat a liquid diet and maybe some plain white bread too- chicken/beef broth, jello, etc. - lactose free - for about
a week to see how things go. Doing that really seemed to help me.
I'm sorry that you are going through this. I totally know how bad it is. I will be thinking of you.
Currently 4 x per day 1000mgs Pentasa, 20 mgs Prednisone, 9mgs Entocort, Prilosec, Lortab, Ambien & 2 Activia yogurts (for probiotics).
