  • Stopping PPIs, your experience

    I did it. I weaned off PPIs after two months of 80 mg pantoprazole/protonix, for about 2 weeks. I know I went fast but the side effects were killing me. I was most probably misdiagnosed with LPR , when in reality i had a bad sinus infection. As it usually goes for other people, i was perfectly fine...

  • Apple cider vinegar always safe for GERD? Inflamed esophagus?

    Hi everyone, I've had enough of acid reflux, I will move the sky in my efforts to be rid of it for good, but I feel very alone in this.
