I have been experiencing acid reflux, abdominal cramping and excessive bloating for over a year now. I have tried giving up different foods, acidic foods and beverages and nothing seems to help. I have had endoscopy, colonoscopy and ultra sound as well as blood work and everything comes out normal. I have tried Nexium, Asiphex and most other acid inhibitors but none seem to really help. I have been taking Nexium daily for about 4 months since it is the only one that gives me a little relief, but over all I constantly feel sick. In addition to these symptoms I feel nausea and my recent symptom is regular daily headaches that seem like sinus head aches but also pressure behind my eyes. Oh, and I also have had bad joint pain in my elbows and knees. My doctors can't figure out what is wrong with me and I am just looking for relief. I have lived a generally healthy life and have never had these issues in the past. They are affecting my daily work and personal life and I am still seeking some answers.
Just picked up your message which is a mirror image of my own symptoms. My headaches were most days for about 3 months and through persistent use of Nexium 40mg daily they have mostly subsided. Was really nauseous too which went on for months. I have been feeling alot better now for about 2 months, I do get the odd day or days of feeling sick but through the use of Benadryl (some people have recommended this on other posts) and up to 3 Motillium a day I seem to be fairing better. Us GERD people needs meds, some days we need more some days not so much. Take care. Clare
It's nice to know that I'm not the only one going through this. I have been taking Nexium daily and also an anti-allergy med but it doesn't seem to help much. I still get the headaches, but mostly it's the acid reflux and joint pain. Do you suggest anything else?
