Bit more info I have had chest x-rays, EKG and two blood test but I can't remember what it was for exactly. All came back just fine and healthy.
Hi and welcome to the GERD forum.
It does take some time for u to feel the effects of these meds.In addition u may want to try in addition to the meds to watch ur diet and make some lifestyle changes....meds alone can not help especialliy if this has gone on a long time untreated or u have excess acid built up.
Please see the Health pages here on MedHelp for a list of lifestyle changes and lists of safe foods and foods to avoid.
Please keep us posted on ur progress
I'm pretty healthy I think. Im 5' 8'' and weigh around 120 and go for daily walks around the apartment complexes. I don't hardly ever eat spicy foods and eat pretty regularly and I hardly eat fast food.
I know science hasn't exactly proven it but I think this pain was a monumental build-up of stress and anxiety.
I just got put on some lexapro for my anxiety and citalopram and that feeling for not being able to breath has gone away and the the stabbing pain is dulling down. I think that my panic disorder could have been a major cause in all of the.
P.S. I took a beano before I ate my mac and cheese today and no burning just a small fart :P
Hopefully this is all I needed and that things continue to get better and no back sliding at all!!!
Just a warning, that dairy can slow the LES and allow acid up into the esphopagus.....so it is important to keep a journal of what u ate and when u get the gerd.......there r many foods that can affect u that u would not have considered a problem.
Like strawberries...pineapple....tomatoes.....ect..all acidic.
