Worsening GERD or getting better?
Im 19 yrs old and heres my situation:
Had a bad case of heartburn with black stools about a month ago so I went to the Doc and he prescribed Nexium for abt 4 weeks and wanted to see how it worked. So i did take it for 4 wks and black stools have stopped since then.(however i regret for not keeping a strict diet)
Once I stopped, the heartburn started to come back with mild burning in the stomach. Took lots of TUMS everytime it came up. And couple of days ago I started to have sore throat that would intensify after sleeping (I do snore very much tho).
As of now, I have started to keep track of my diet and the heartburn has slowly retreated and now I only have the sore throat and very mild burning stomach. Does this mean I'm getting better or getting worse? Should I go back to the doctor?
P.S I've notcied my heartburn gets worse everytime I drink water (even between meals).
Thank You for taking the time to answer my questions. Really appreciate it!
