Acid Reflux / GERD board

Here are tips in the managment of GERD:
Eat a low-fat diet; avoid caffeine, tobacco, beer, milk, foods containing peppermint or spearmint, and carbonated beverages(like pop); avoid eating or drinking 2 hours before bedtime; maintain normal body weight; avoid tight-fitting clothing; elevate the head of the bed on 6-8 inche blocks; elevate the upper body on pillows.
Had you tried all of these before they put on medications? Usually after these are unsuccessulful is when they would prescribe medication such as the aciphex or protonix. For the nausea and vomiting, you might want to ask your doctor for a prescription for something such as reglan, bethanecol, or domperidone. Also, maybe the doctor can prescribe something for anxiety(because this might be causing the nightmares and then sweats because your adrenaline is soaring) such as alprazolam (Xanax),diazepam (Valium),lorazepam (Ativan), oxazepam (Serax), chlordiazepoxide (Librium). I would consult your doctor and inform them about all of the symptoms you're experiencing. Good Luck. God Bless.
