Re: Help! Advice Needed So Please
Kevin, I can't really say if you need the test or not, thats best left to you and your Dr.
You have to remember that the Meds will not cure GERDS their function is to reduce the acid levels to minimize the damage when they are refluxed out of the stomach. The meds are actually detrimental to the digestive process and could cause a number of side effects and nutritional problems with long term use. IMO they are very usefull for short term protection and to allow healing to damaged tissue. But if you are ever to find a long term solution you will most likely have to figure whats at the root of the problem. Seems like every person is a little different and what works for one may not neccessarily work for everyone.
Best of luck 2 you
