P.s. if you test positive for Helicobacter pylori they have a new international drug treatment for it as of 2013. So, I could send you the regimen.
I'm no doctor but i think your kind of reflux is called Silent reflux/LPR if your coughs are the worse after you eat and you get post nasal drip too ..
I was also being told to take Fenaler Cort for allergy, and also to take Nexium 40 every morning, and mosapride 3 times a day, ( before every meal ).
The symptoms didn't totally go away and it's scary when thinking of all those chemicals being in your system ( in my case I'm really skinny ) but what helps me more is cutting off chocolate, hot spiced meals, mint, onion , garlic, lemon.. semmak.... and sleeping on an empty stomach ( meaning.. No food or water 3 hours prior to bed time) and make sure to have many pillows under your head. And finally.. eating slowly.. like.. REAL slow...
BUT i went to an other doctor to have a second opinion.. and he said this is not reflux.. and only gave me an allergy medication and said the others are a bit too much for the stomach to handle. Go figure...
okay i will keep you updated
nice hearing from you
Thanks for your concern. Well, I will go back to work. The question is can I do what I want to do or what I used to do? So, we'll see. I can get a job. Right now I can lift anything (maybe 3-4 lbs). But when my frozen shoulder gets better I will start lifting more weight so I can get back to close to normal. I'm lucky my husband has a good job so far!. Let me know how things go for you.
owwww ,i m so sorry to hear that ....
i dunno what to say, thank God you have your husband and that you got those 6000 $ here in lebanon they give you nothing...
did u search for any online work, maybe something similar to this blog but a paid one , just a thought ....
keep in touch :/
No, they don't care. I can't even get disability for when I wasn't able to get outside or wash myself. So, I'm glad I have my husband to work and to help. I'm ok now and am walking 2 hours a day now and the pain is chronic but I'm able to bend and drive and wash now. I can do most of my chores around the house. I just can't lift much weight. It was a torn ligament in my lower back. So, it took a long time to heal. I also got tendonitis on both wrists from work. I got only $6,000. for that work injury and the case is closed. So, now I have figure out what work to do after $20 years of experience in biotech, clinical micro and research. I guess I am venting. Sorry, LOL. I just don't know what I am capable of working on but want to keep my skills. Thanks for asking.
owww sorry to hear that, God help you to get your health away
does your country help you in unemployment ? or like here they dont care ?
You are welcome. I'm not a doctor but I'm a microbiologist. But right now I'm unemployed due to a back injury and am enjoying helping people.
i have done 2 times Gastroscopy and made for me biopsy back 3 4 years and they have found bacteria and ulcer , i got meds and all went well, is it possible that it may come back ?
im takig gastrimut for GERD almost all the time
i agree with you that i must make Gastroscopy, coz it has been 4 years since the last one, maybe the ulcer or the bacteria came back...
the thing is that im fed up with meds but in the same time my throat pain is chronic which makes my life miserable ...
thanks for you concern , you have good info and experience
you should be a doctor :P
I found your message. Well we discussed your night sweats. The GERD is probably eroding your throat (lower end) and causing irritation. You have to watch this because it can cause problems down the line. Are you still on drugs for the GERD? If not you need to get back on them. If you can take Prilosec without diarrhea that is good but I couldn't take it. I take Zantac. Did they say that checked you for helicobacter pylori? It is a bacteria that can cause an ulcer. They would have done a biopsy during the Gastroscopy. If you have this they have to give you 4 different antibiotics and bismuth sulfate. At least the 4 antibiotics. You may not have an ulcer if they didn't find one. I am just wondering. I get stomach pain off and on with my GERD too. If the gastroscopy was a long time ago you could repeat it and check for ulcer and ask them to make sure you don't have any oral,, throat and stomach cancer. I know you don't (don't worry and that is hard to say) but it is best to check and rule out right then to wait too long? It is just a safety precaution that is all! The jaw pain and those symptoms sound like TMJ. You can ask your dentist about this. They may have a way to help you with it. I'm not sure if they can adjust your bite or not. I would have to read about it but I know your jaw causes problems. It is not serious but it can hurt. These are all suggestions. Then if it is all GERD then maybe they can at least give you better meds. You probably have anxiety and don't want to go out because you haven't felt well. I think you will get this all taken care of.
i appreciate is somebody available gives me his time
any body ?!!!! any reply ??
