I was diagnosed with GERD and esophaghitis three years ago after an endoscopy, gastro gave me ppis for three months and after that I lived mostly a normal life for the next two years as long as I followed a diet low on reflux triggers. However exactly a year ago the symptoms came back worst than ever. I took ppis for three more months but as soon as I got off them the symptoms come back.
The doctor did another endoscopy and to my surprise he actually saw a lot of improvement. He gave me ppis for one more month and I started feeling better. However, I started eating more food in order to gain weight. (Ive always been skinny) But the food was still based on low acid reflux diet, still it screwed me up again. Fast foward 6 months, I cant even fo to work because I feel bad almost everyday.
To make matters worse, for the past year Ive been dealing with heart palpitations that constantly scare the crap out of me. The cardiologist says my heart is fine snd to avoid coffe and stress, but that has not helped much. Sometimes I wonder if those could be related to my gerd.
