Re: My Journey to come off of PPI's (At 2 weeks)
Well, I guess I'm at the 3 month mark, more or less. Since my last update, I'm not sure how much positive change I have had. If I have, then it's been feeling a little better here and there, but it's still very rare to have consistent streaks of days where I don't have any problems, and/or I don't even have to think about it. I'm starting to learn more about the dietary aspect of this, and how to alter it to avoid feeling so bad. For example, I can have scrambled eggs with diced ham, but I have to avoid or just really limit breads, potatoes, etc. I guess some of the starchy carbs give me issues sometimes. I also learned about proper timing of taking your acid reducers (i.e. Zantac, for me). Even though they say to take the pills before you eat, no one pays attention to that, and they just take them after they're in pain. Sometimes you can get exponential results just by when you take your H2's, and just taking it before you eat. With that said, I wish I were making better progress.
