Docs just say to take Pepcid or Prilosec...this is soooo irritating!!!

Anyone else experiencing this??

    Hi Vee,

    I had this really bad for a while they prescribed a proton pump inhibitor. Although it cut down on the amount of attacks. It did not stop them.

    After researching I tried ginger capsules 2 before meals and ginger tea made with fresh ginger sipped slowly after meals.

    After about a month on this regime and no further attacks whatsoever I stopped taking it and have not had the problem since.

    Hope this helps you too.
