Presently i am having a bad flare up of acid reflux and am feeling very down with it.
?Briefly i started with globus in Jan 2016 after being anxious for a time.
I saw an ENT and ended up on pantoprazole as he diagnosed me with acid reflux although i had no symptoms other than globus.
?I then developed discomfort in my stomach and felt the drugs may have caused it.I was on them for approx 2 months with no improvement.
I came off them and had a camera down my throat, again ENT confirmed i had acid and to keep on the PPI.
?Basicaly i have had periods off drugs and on, also tried honey, avoiding certain foods,i've taken silicol gel before meals and gaviscon after.
After noticing a significant improvement during approx 7 weeks off PPI's i had a flare up and decided to try Lansoprazole.
?My symptoms are very mild globus and epigastric discomfort like pressure.
?The GP ordered a scan of my upper abdomen which was fine, he's looking at IBS and coeliac disease next. he's also mentioned a camera in my stomach. I'm anxious about the camera test which he may order.
?I have been trying to keep a record of whats happening diet wise and symptms. Does anyone know of any printable record sheets please.
