Burning in Lower Esophogus upper stomach area

About two months ago I started having extreme stomach and chest burning. A month later I went to the doctor and was prescribed proton inhibitors. Most, but not all, of the burning in the chest has subsided but I still have daily burning sensations in the upper abdoman or lower esophogus area.

I have taken all of the dietary precautions. Does anyone know how long this will last or what more I can do? It is causing me stress that makes it worse.

Re: Burning in Lower Esophogus upper stomach area

Hi, I have AR/GERD for 2.5 yrs. I do not take PPIs. I was prescribed them but only took them for a week. I have read of people on here who have taken them for years, I actually have a friend who has been on them for 1.5 yrs and just cant leave them off. I think you will get replys from people who have had your symptoms for many years wether they take medication or not. I am taking Grapefruit Seed Extract and Gaviscon, sometimes the symptoms are bad or not so bad. I dont know if anyone can tell you how long it will last. Good Luck, Solofelix.
