Impedence Testing

My doctor has just booked me for an impedence test. I already had the manometry and bravo probe tests which were awful at the time but I realized that it was worth it for the information it provides. I guess for this test I do have to keep the tube in my nose for the entire 24 hours. Has anyone had this test? Im going to take off the day from work even though they want you to "resume normal activities" but I just dont see that happening. I also have to go off my PPI for a full week before the test so Im scared I wont be able to eat anythign for a week without being in a lot of pain even though I still am very much symptomatic even on my PPI. Can anyone relate and tell me it wont be that bad?!?!

Re: Impedence Testing

I guess nobody has had the impedience ph test? Anyway, I think my mine concern is being off my PPI for a week. I've heard stories of people trying to quit PPIs with rebound acid production and Im scared the week before the test will be hell. I guess I can just buy a huge bottle of Gaviscon.

Re: Impedence Testing

scott, i haven't had the test, but i do know that sometimes when people are forced to stop the PPI's they find they feel better, not worse. that may just be the case for you. i hope so. think positive and keep us posted. good luck!
