I am all over this board - but I have a few questions. Both my parents suffer from Acid Reflux and they take different medicine for it. My mother had to use different medicines to find the right one that works for her.
Before my gallbladder removal I would have occassional heartburn and acid coming into the throat area but it didn't really bother me. As soon as I got my gallbladder removed I would get bloated, tightness around the waist, beltching constantly, and then I would have episodes of nausea. At night, I would wake up and it felt like acid was coming up my throat. Sometimes in the morning my throat would feel raw and then I would beltch all morning and sometimes the beltching would relieve the nausea. My doctor noticed the roof of my mouth was completely red and wanted me to see a gasterologist. I would go for two weeks feeling ok and have mild symptoms of heartburn, and bloating and acid problems and then the episode would happen where I would get nausea most of the day and then the next day my stomach would be sore (upper area of stomach). I don't eat fried foods, and I exercise. I saw a gasterologist and he tested me for h-ployria, pancrititus, liver enzymes, mrsp xray to see if I had stones left from the surgery. All the other test were negative. I am now having a endoscopy and if this comes back negative the doctor will think i am coo coo. I get anxiety over this which makes my condition worse. The nausea is nasty to deal with. I have been through nexium and zantac and they didn't work. So my questions are:
Do you have to try alot of different acid reflux medicines to find the right one that works for you?
Can Acid Reflux cause nausea for a day or two?
What are the symptoms?
