I was told that I have Irregular Contractions in my Esophagus and am puzzled by what exactly this means. Do I have a paraesophageal hernia or is this something different. I've had a GI Series which showed I have a small amount of reflux and a hiatus hernia. I also had a gastroscopy which also showed the reflux. I am currently waiting for my doctor to read the xrays but am puzzled by what this is. FYI, I didn't know I had either the Hiatus Hernia or the reflex as I don't get reflux or heartburn very often.
My name is Tonya and I'm 31 years old. I've been diagnosed w/biliary reflux. I was wondering if you don't have any symptoms of reflux or the Hernia what prompted your doc to do the GI Series. I mean what are your symptoms?
I have been on aciphex but have been having more and more problems with it. Gas, bloating, palpitations, etc. I was first given 20 mg. a day than increased to 40 mgs. a day for two months due to Barrett's Esophagus 1 cm. short segment. This is when I began experiencing palpitations, etc. Anyway, I just got switched to prilosec. My question is, do some people have trouble with all PPI's?
Everyone responds differently to different medications including the Proton Pump Inhibitors. Some may find relief with one and not another. There are other PPI's other than Aciphex: Prilosec, Nexium (new Prilosec), Prevacid and Protonix.
I HAVE TRIED JUST EVERY ACID REFLIX MEDICATION THAT ERIK JUST MENTION AND THE ONLY ONE THAT HAS NOT GIVEN ME PROBLEMS SO FAR IS THE PROTONIX. IT ALSO UNLIKE THE OTHERS ACTUALY SEEMED TO HELP ME. GOOD LUCK
