ive vey had constant acid reflux for the last 3 weeks. I feel horrendous!
It it feels like I've drunk a whole bottle of vinegar. My throat is sore. It's making me feel miserable and there has been no restbite from it.
I've my diet and it's pretty much very alkaline and it's not bad any difference. I've reduced my portion sizes and spread my meals out and nothing- it's still there. Everytime I eat I have acid in my throat minutes after eating and it's there all day even when I've not eaten.
Ive had a stool test for H. pylori(Helicobacter pylori) and it's come back negative. I've also had a blood test which came back fine.
My doctor prescribed some 20mg ozerprazole which I took for a week. It did nothing. Went back to the doctors a week later and he upped it to 40mg. Another week later and that's not worked.
I went back back to the doctors today and he has given me some Lansoprazole. 15mg to start with for a week and if that doesn't do anything 30mg for a week.
He said if that doesn't clear things up he would have to refer me to the gastro people.
Does anyone know how long the referral process takes and what happens when you go and see them?
Also so does anyone have any tips to get rid of the vinegar taste in mouth.
Currently I'm drinking lots of water and chewing a lot of sugar free gum.
