Need knowledge of Gerd
This is my story of my symptoms..........I was pregnant for the past 2 years, well in my 2nd pregnancy when i was 5 months I had a terrible burning sensation in my throat & in between my shoulder blades. The doctor had an idea it was acid reflux but because i was pregnant there was nothing they could do, she said try tums. Now my baby is 4 & half months old I have had lots of test done such as chest xray which was normal, Liver & Gallbladder xray which was normal. A couple of weeks ago I had an Edoscope which was not so normal, they found, Gastric Antrum - Inflammation, Incisura of the stomach - Inflammation, Gastric Cardia - lots of acid they did suggest Barretts esophagus but the biospies came back no barretts just said Relux changes. The doctor prescribed me prilosec & said take twice a day.........well no change after 8 days, I am at my wits end all day pain, the good thing is I do not have heart burn, I never get disturbed sleep apart from the kids lol.
I use to drink untold diet coke, i have give that up, the worst is I do smoke I know I really need to give up, but I have had a lot of stress ect: Got married, moved to the USA but I miss my family terribly in London.
Does stress cause Gerd?
Any body know off anything that would help, I would love to know........btw I did a little surfing & ppl did say Apple vinegar & Apple juice......Well never again, made it feel much worst.
