I would like to start a support group for reflux sufferers - as it is only when you are going through it yourself can you empathise with others!
I was diagnosed 3 months ago with severe oesophagitus caused by reflux. I had no warning signs - I just woke up one day in agonising pain, it dramatically worsened and I had to spend a few days in hospital. I have been on high doses of omeprazole (didn't work!) and lansoprazole (did work and this week they have reduced me to 15mg a day). I drink gaviscon like there is no tomorrow and I have recently weaned myself of the hospital's pain killers (morphine and co-codamol ) as I have children to take care of.
I am only just on the mend - but I know I am in it for the long run and could do with a bit of company! My hubby is brilliant - but like I said - I would prefer having a moan with another sufferer rather than worrying my lovely other half.
hope to hear from you all soon
