My husband and I just found out that our 5yr old daughter has GERD. It all started about a month and a half ago with what we thought was her tonsilis. She wasn't eating and said that she thought she would choke. I took her to the DR he said that her tonsilis where swollen but not enough to pervent eating and that it was in her head and she would eat when she wanted to and wouldn't starve. I wasn't happy with him and I took her to a ENT DR and he put a tube down her thoart and said there where no signs of cancer and yes her tonsilis where swollen but not really bad and her adnoids where fine. She hasn't had a fever or a cough or swollen glands yet. I took her to yet another Dr and made sure that they understood all my concerns, she wasn't eating, was losing weight, wasn't sleeping well,her breath smelled like chemicals, and all food was sour, which is the same thing I told the first DR. This DR said she has GERD and gave her Zantac 4 days ago.
Well with the background down here is my question:
She still is not eating anything solid and will only drink and eat baby food, We are giving her Pedisure when will she eat and could there be more wrong then? How long does Zantac take to work?
She is over 4ft tall and weighs 48lbs.
Thank you very much to anyone whom can help.
