    Unhappy Severe Acid Reflux - Nothing seems to work

    Hi,

    I have severe acid reflux. Burns and ulcers in mouth and throat.

    I'm on my third PPI and none of them have helped. Occasional relief from Gaviscon. Anyone have any advice?

    Thanks,

    - Perry

    I have used aloe vera, which settled the off balance of acid in my system. Have used it for years. Was on a prescription, but threw it out years ago because when one pill did not work, the gastro man told me to take two. Came home, did some research and found aloe vera would help and it did.

    Going through the same thing. Will try aloe Vera. Is it a drink form that you sip? I also tried three PPI. Nexium side effects were horrible for me. Currently taking pepcid. Ok but good and bad days. I canít seem to eat anything but oatmeal veggies toast soup. I never really feel right.

    You can buy it in bottle at a Trader Joe's I am told, but I take it in capsule form. Give it time to work and when I started, I took three before breakfast, lunch and before going to bed. However, I told one person about this and he took the liquid form and I think it worked quickly with him; don't think he was on it very long.
