Ok what i am wondering is whether i actually have acid reflux and i will explain why.
After i finally was given an endoscopy because my GP said that i may have AR because of the strange sensations i had been experiencing for years the Consultant informed me that my stomach was inflamed but he could not say why.As a consequence i carried on taking Lansoprozole until that did not seem to be working and it was changed to Pantrop.. and i then was given Ranitidine to take of an evening.Because that also did not seem to be working i have had to back that up with Gaviscon which also does not seem to be working.Because of that as you may have read in another thread on here the Consultant has now prescribed another drug Dop... sorry i cannot remember the name and he is going to arrange for me to have the monitoring process where they insert a tube up your nose.With regard to the new drug one of our colleagues told me to Goggle it and after reading what i found i will not be taking that.So what i am now wondering is given its still to be determined whether i actually do have AR why have i been prescribed tablets to treat it and what harm could they be doing to me when i dont need to be taking them.
As i have also said before why are some of us so willing to assume our GPs actually understand what our medical problems are and know of the best treatment for us.
