GERD / Acid Reflux


Hiatal hernia





Trying to figure out what's up... I had an ulcer 22 years ago & had an artery pop through my stomach, lost a lot of blood & almost died.  I was diagnosed with an ulcer due to stress & a hiatal hernia. Medication, 2 pints of blood and 3 months of rest made me healthy again. Colon cancer and polyps run in my family (my father, my aunt & my grandma - I look like all of them.) I have a very noisy stomach, and usally have mild to severe heartburn at least half of the day.  A few times a day I have very painful reflux.  I've been taking Prilosec for about 10 days, along with A LOT of Tums, Zantac, and Gas-X (I like the strips you put on your tongue, these work fast.) I am scheduling a Colonoscopy and Endoscopy, Hopefully tracking will help for the doctors.
