I have not taken my meds for reflux all year since being on them off and on for 2 years.
When I was on omeprazole it really did seem to improve, a bit. Then I decreased to 20mg and thought I was better.
I have been coughing up clear mucus and thought it was bronchitis and coming from my right lung, since I had burning and pressure around my right lower rib cage and up the right center of my back.
I gave up the fight and returned to my med and will make an appointment to see a new gastro, soon.
My last gastro doctor said I would be taking meds for the rest of my life. I resented that comment and felt IA could prove him wrong. I guess not.
All I want is to be out of agony. He can be right.
I don't know when I have had a good night sleep
Do you have any encouragement?
Have you had mucus and burning?
Any suggestions of what I can do to speed up the pr to heal my esophagus and minimize inflammation?
Has anyone after dealing with chronic acid reflux been able to get off or tapper off their med?
Through this experience I learned a lot about myself.
I need to give up the need to be right.
I need to choose a female care given, because I don't do well with the energy of the male doctor's usually.
There are worse things that taking meds for reflux.
Just relax, be discomfort free and go with the flow.
Nothing back is happening, don't be afraid.
