Acid Reflux / GERD board


Oh I so need to join this topic...count me in....since Nov I feel I have been in a deep depression over this. They first said I had LPR then they said I have vocal cord dysfunction. Most of my tests do not show signs of reflux but I am going for a monometry test in a couple weeks. I cannot stand it anymore. I try not to eat bad but almost everythng sets it off. I take Aciphex and honestly sometimes I think I feel worse on it. I also take enzymes and the Dr. just added carafate whcih I have not started yet that is like Sucralfate, he gave me liqid form so maybe it will help my esophagus.
I also take Klonopin for the anxiety since I cannot handle the breathing and lump in the throat feeling!
I avoid dairy and chocolate, i eat low fat but I still have a half a cup of coffee a day, i add coffe tamer to reduce the acid (that is my only vice).
I just have not found relief yet...I hope this test shows something.
Good luck everyone, it's good to know we're not alon!

Coffee and caffeine are big no no's - they'll mess your stomach up bad! when I was in the ER they warned me that caffeine makes it worse. I have since eliminated the caffeine in all forms. It is brutal!
