I have severe GERD with Barret's esophagus non circular and with no cell changes, so what meds have any of you found that don't cause a big flare? We are still trying out meds and I now started on nexium which I think is starting to relief this somewhat. All the current arthritis meds I can't take, vioxx, celebrex etc. I also take actenol for osteoporosis and I stopped taking that til I get this under control. Are there any "older" anti inflamatories that work pretty good and a bit easy on GERD? I'm at a lose for what to take right now. I have osteo in the hands, feet, neck and spine and sometimes it's too much to handle. I can't even eat for comfort right now.
