Hi to everybody,

I am 28 yr old healthy male.

I have been given zantac for a suspected hiatas hernia and now I am getting alot of gas and bouts of loose stools ( not bad or really watery )along with mild dull abdominal pains/ache.

Has anybody had this with these tablets or should I go back to the doctors, I did mention it to him last time and he said 'could be the tablets' but didn't seem too concerned.

I am not due back to the doctors untill I get an appointment for an endoscopy in about 2 months.

Thankyou in advance for any replies.

I'm going to do a "cut & paste" of some GASTRIC REFLUX TIPS that my husband and I use, that we find very helpful. Check with your doc, and if you & your doc have no objections, give these a week's try. See if they help!

GER=Gastro-Esophageal Reflux. (Gastro=stomach. Esophagus=food tube.)

LPR= Laryngeal-Pharyngeal Reflux. (Larynx=voice box, containing the 2 vocal cords. Pharynx=throat, above the larynx. The larynx is above the trachea/windpipe.)

Reflux=acidic or alkaline stomach material that backs up into the esophagus (food tube), causing any of these problems: VCD attacks, cough, voice problems, asthma, globus (feeling of lump in throat), constant need to clear throat, worsening of sinus condition, sore throat, pre-cancerous conditions of throat &/or esophagus, etc.

SOME GER/LPR CONTROL THINGS WE DO, that we learned from the excellent book: STOMACH AILMENTS AND DIGESTIVE DISTURBANCES, by Michael T. Murray, N.D. See page 9, References, in my website: http://cantbreathesuspectvcd.com   and, also see GER/LPR info on page 5, and on LINKS page.

PLEASE READ THIS GREAT BOOK. It can be bought on-line, from Michael T. Murray
