GERD newly diagnosed

My symptoms started out with bad acid at night that I was actually up vomiting one night, after I stopped eating after 6 pm it then went to waking up at night gasping for air to pretty bad chest pain and bloating that sent me to the ER. The Dr. examined me and did an ekg also to rule out anything cardiac and told me it is likely GERD. I am currently unable to eat more than a tiny amount and have pressure and bloating along with sensitivity still when I do eat.

This feels like another nightmare. 3 years ago I had gallstones and pancreatitis and had surgery for that and still my digestive system never did recover and not I have this to deal with as well

I'm praying there is hope to get improvement.

Re: GERD newly diagnosed

I can eat just about nothing right now and I had horrible issues last night just because I put too much water in my stomach. I've lost 12 lbs in less than 2 weeks. I just got back from the Dr. and she gave me a script for generic Zantac so I may have to try that.
