Hi. After a bit of advice on what to do next. Only for the last 6 months, our son has been complaining and suffering from acid reflux. He describes it as burning in the upper part of his tummy. But occasionally it comes up to the top of his throat. He does not get it every meal or every day. On average, he gets it about once every 2 to 3 days in one of his meals. He has good overall health and is not obese and does not overeat.
The specialist at our first session so far has recommended a mild laxative to assist his stomach emptying. We want to avoid proton pumps inhibitors as the side effects are serious (ie causes kidney damage and/or dementia). Specialist wants to do endoscopy if the laxative does not work (and it isnt working!)
could this be a teen puberty thing with hormones?
can acid be a transient thing or is he stick with it.
clearly acid is needed in the stomach, but is there a way to "train" the sphincter to close up properly?
Appreciate any experience in this area.
