Re: My Doctor thinks its reflux?
I started to get reflux due to my mothers sudden illness and then her very sudden passing
I was perfectly fine until the call at 2am then rushing to hospital,she was given a week to live. Very stressful she had surgery came out ok then had some very bad ups and downs over the 3.5 months she was in hospital. My stress and anxiety were just About beyond what I could take went to doc he gave me tecta told me it was gastritis without ever even coming within 2 feet of me, took the meds seemed to help a bit , mom was doing a bit better I started feeling a bit better still was t eating or sleeping as we were getting phone calls from hospital at all hours of the day n night then she was due to come home on the Friday we got a call Wednesday night that she was. Or doing well again stomach goes crazy we go to hospital they then tell us she won't make it through the nite I tried to stay positive throughout because of my sisters and kids but when she finally pased early Thursday morning I fell apart completely I was in the hospital emerg myself twice in one week thought I was done for my body and mind went crazy my health went down the crapper quickly lost a lot of weight couldn't eat and barely slept went back to doc he gave me Prevacid that only made it worse hey told me to double up on it so I did just wanted stomach pain to stop already but to no avail went back again about month and a half later he said maybe stomach cancer still never touched me or anything I flipped as I had had every test under the sun almost at the 2 emerg visits so I switched docs did doc put me back on tecta for 6 weeks seemed to help some then I ran out of tecta went through rebound very badly I'm sure it would have been less had I been in a better frame of mind that was in August I am still suffering from reflux on a daily basis some days better than others I take Pepcid when needed I also use dgl and Manila honey chamomile tea Papua enzymes am trying mastic gum as well. I just want to get back to normal but I am still stressed out and sad and have anxiety trying to work on that but when something so dramatic happens like that u just don't know what to do with yourself. I am sorry about your mom can you tell me what else u take and what u found that helps
