    Question for Gerd sufferers

    Hi there you poor fellow sufferers..I was wondering if anyone can advise me on a couple of questions..I have a hiatal hernia and suffer from acid reflux for which I am taking nexium, 40mg daily..I am currently suffering from inflamed joints due to spondolosis in my neck ..questionable TMJ..and arthritis in my knees..I was told it is not advisable to take anti-inflammotory tablets (ie ibuprophen) as they could upset my stomach and worsen my gerd question is what can I take to bring down the inflammation in my joints to lessen the pain..also I am 43 years old and perimenopausal I am told..I have not had a period in 9 months..I do think this is contributing to my joint pain.. I feel I should be taking some form of supplement on a daily basis for my bones but again Im told calcium tablets can affect my gerd symptoms so I really am at a loss as to what to take to help me ..I live in the UK so medication I can obtain here or the equivalent would be helpful although any advice would be gratefully received either through your own experiences or gained in knowledge
    thanks for listening
    take care all

    Like you, I have been diagosed with a small hiatal hernia, and reflux and my Gastroenterologist prescribed Nexium, 40 mg, once a day, which has helped.

    I take 1,000 milligrams of Calcium daily, and they do not affect my reflux, however, I take them dispersed throughout the day and ONLY after a meal (breakfast, lunch and dinner).

    Also, for any aches and pains, my Dr. said it is safe to take Tylenol without affecting my stomach.

    Best of luck,
