Treatment Good for Gerd?
Hi Ted, In the beginning of January I found myself having a horrible burning sensation in the middle of my chest. It was so bad I had my husband take me to the after hours clinic since I knew I wouldn't be able to sleep. The doctor diagnosed me with GERD & gave me a "GI Cocktail" and prescribed Zantac. After several days of the Zantac I became very nauseous. Over the course of about a month and a half the doctor had put me on prescription strength Pepcid and then Prilosec. Both pills worked for about 2 weeks then the pain came back and they both made me feel like my insides were very dry. I kept having a tickle in my throat which would make me cough every couple minutes. It is very annoying. The doctors are trying to push pills down my throat and I know that is not my solution. I had my esophagus tested and there is no sign of erosion or anything harmful there. Since all of the other pills didn't work now the doctor prescribed me Dicyclomine which I found out is for IBS. I don't believe that I have IBS I just want the pain to go away and get back to living my life. I have tried the baking soda and water and it seems to give me immediate results. I didn't know that I could take the baking soda and water on an everyday basis. I thought I would mess something up inside of me. Would I benefit to add the ACV to the baking soda and water? I am afraid that my chest will hurt worse. If so, what other type of vitamins or supplements would you suggest for me. My skin looks very dry and pale and I have zero energy. Thank you so much, Susan Denver, CO
