I haven't been here in a long time. My GERD seemed to clear up fairly well in the past few years.
But last spring I developed nausea and have had a million tests to figure it out.......all negative. I finally got in with a new GI doc and he ordered a Gastric Emptying test. I'm having big problems with leg and hip pain and I don't think I can lay still for the couple of hours the test supposedly takes. The doc did mention a possible alternative to Reglan. Its "Iberogast". Its an herbal supplement, used in Germany for about 50 years.
Supposedly, it helps with alot of GI problems. I'm curious if any of you have ever heard of it or used it?
I'm also wondering if many of you have had the test for gastroparesis.
I can't use PPIs. They give me horrible headaches. I realize now that the 5 years of almost constant headaches I had about 8 years ago was caused by the PPIs! I can't believe I didn't make the connection.
And H2 blockers don't seem to have an effect.
Also.......do many of you have nausea/belching with your GERD, but NO heartburn? I guess I was thinking I didn't have reflux anymore because I don't have heartburn, but I may be wrong. Thanks for your help!
