Re: can gerd cause gastritis
Hi Ness, I haven't really noticed any sensitivity to hot or cold food, as for nausea I have experienced it in the past. What is getting quite common for me is stomach aches like hunger pains, and as for my LPR symptoms, change on a daily basis, I am good one day, bad the next day, I am on 40mg nexium twice daily.
I had the 24hr ph-metry test and osephagus manometry done couple of months ago, and it was OK, and showed I am boarder line, but my ENT said I need impedance manometry which checks all the other stuff coming up.
I am having that one done in 2 weeks time. The GI said come off the nexium suddenly all together, I am just scared doing that so decided to cut down to 40mg for 3 days, and then stop all together.
But what I have noticed, is that my symptoms get really bad near the time of the month, and funny enough the new GI that I saw asked the specific question that do they get bad around your periods?!! It's quite ironic that most people who take any kind of medical tests want the results to be OK, I guess I am reverse I want this test to show that I do reflux since I really do suffer, and I want the GI to be convinced.
Best of luck to you with your test
