I was diagnosed with Gerd last Oct.I was prescribed Omeprazole capsules,which I took for 3 mths,twice a day,then a month 1 per day.It eased off,and after having to have quite alot of time off work (I work 12 hr shifts,chest pain was worse at night,only maxed 3-4 hrs sleep per night)I returned to work feeling much better.Back at work for 3 mths,then....Gerd reared its ugly head again.I had experienced anxiety (family issues)before being diagnosed.Those family issues are still ongoing.I am now off work again due to feeling in quite alot of pain,and suffering from anxiety.I'm not sure how all this happened.One minute I was coping (Or I thought I was??)with life,the next,stricken with bad anxiety,and Gerd.
I am back on Omeprazole,and was told by my doctor yesterday I will be until Xmas,taking 2 per day,then after Xmas,one a day.I'm not particularly happy about taking these tablets.Are they just masking the issue?I'm feeling nervous that once I come off these again next year,it will flare up again.
What I'd like to know is has anyone managed to ease Gerd with a more natural approach.I am aware of my anxiety,and am practising Yoga regularly,plus meditation.Atm some days are better than others pain wise.Has anyone taken any herbal supplements thats helped them?Anything idea's would be appreciated.
I asked my doctor if Gerd is something I will be suffering with for the rest of my life.He could'nt give me a definitive answer.Does anyone else know?Can you cure Gerd?TIA
