    Hi Ana...we have d same symptoms and same lifestyle changes. Try to request for an upper endoscopy. I suspect u have a hiatal hernia which causes a silent reflux (LPR). Just try to avoid stress as this adds to more acid from the stomach. Thats all i can say for now. Hoping u find relief.

    just relax and dont think about cancer . i have gastritis and esophagitis and i have been on lansoprazole 30mg daily for almost 6 years now. this keeps the symptoms under control. check ur magnesium level so u can take supplements if u continue taking ppi. sleeping with the upper body elevated also helped me alot. dont stress urself thinking of the worst. you are not alone with those symptoms.

    Glad ur trying to relax and meditate. sad to say that GERD doesnt really heal. the medication just prevents it from getting worse so as not to damage the esophagus. gastritis and esophagitis do heal coz mine did. i have this feeling that you have a loose LES , lower esophageal spinchter which makes the stomach acid to shoot upwards easily. but dont worry. ur medications neutralize it before it can do severe damages. u will be fine. just take away worries.

      oh ok i understand i have gerd for about 6 years but i did not know i have it just found out 4 months ago with the endoscopy i was no in treatments the last 6 years i was scared endoscopy was gonna show damaged since i was no in treatments all those years but it showed gerd and gastritic after i have the endoscopy doctor prescribed medication but i was under other medications i couldnt mix with the reflux medication so i did no use them the last 4 months after the endoscopy my reflux got really bad with the burning and all that can severe damage or damage occur in 4 months ? this last 4 months it was so bad can my esophagus be damage now ? because i did not treat it the last 4 months or it take time ? i have to ask my doctor this question lol do you know if this can happen 😕 hope no how will i know i f i got damage or really severe damage in my esophagus if it can occur in 4 months when reflux was out of control and no treatments 😕

    oh...dont worry coz it takes years for the esophagus to be heavily damaged without medication. like me, u have to continue the ppi for at least 6 months for the esophagitis and gastritis to heal. i still experience reflux but minimal only . have tried to get off lansoprazole for 2 weeks but the symptoms comes back when i eat acidic and oily foods. just continue ur relaxation and food diet and surely everything will be fine.

    oh yes...i am drinking ensure for nutrients coz ppis control our stomach acid which reduces proper nutrient absorption. i too have lost weight and drinking ensure helped me gain and maintain just right. just be patient and avoid stress and you will be fine and feel well.
