I have been diagnosed with GERD, and was put on Pepsid AC and Mylanta. The Mylanta never seemed to help, but the Pepsid helped for a few days, and the symptoms came back. My main symptom is nausea and every once in a while I feel burning in my upper stomach and esophagus, and also my gastroesophageal sphincter does jumping jacks. I tried Prilosec but I did not do the whole 14 days at once. It, too, seemed to help for a few days and the symptoms came back. Mostly nausea and an all-over sick feeling. I have the nausea mostly at night into the early morning, when it tends to go away after I drink some baking soda (1/2 teaspoon per 4oz of water). I sleep propped up with a 6-inch wedge, and 4 pillows on it, so I am probably closer to 1 foot. The nausea will come whether I have ate anything or not, as sometimes I will go to bed feeling fine, and then at 1am I am sick. I wait 2 1/2 to 3 hours after eating to go to bed. Currently I am pack on the Pepsid and I am taking Zantac, as a friend told me that the only way she made her nausea go away was to take both of them. That helped great for one night, and the next night it did not help. I would like to find something that I can trust instead of guessing everyday and only getting a good night's sleep every 4 or 5 days. I eat mainly organic food at night that seems to make me feel better, and also salad. I cut out the coffee, no soda, no fatty foods, and the only dairy I eat is yogurt. I changed my butter to gluten free and also my bread. Is there anything else I can do? I was diagnosed in February. Thans for any help. Oh, and I have not vomited at all with this nausea. Like I said above, many times food makes it better, and I chew gum after meals which tends to help, but not always. Thanks!
