Re: Can someone Please give me some Help! At my WITS end!
It's rough, I know.
Sounds like you are getting all the right tests. The only other one I can think of is a pH monitoring study, to see if it's GERD or something else. (By the way, did you get the actual number from your HIDA scan? Normal is between 35% and 75%.)
It's true, some asthma meds can cause or worsen GERD if they contain an ingredient called a LABA (long-acting beta agonist). Advair, Symbicort and Dulera all fall into this category, and they all severely worsened my GERD. It took a few weeks for things to settle down again after I stopped taking it. Inhalers that are JUST a steroid do not normally cause stomach upset.
Just keep eating something. Cooked veggies are a good bet. Some of us do best with starches, like a baked potato. For meat, go very lean, like baked or roasted chicken.
