I've been diagnosed with GERD and been taking prescription medicine, but ever since I ran out, I've been doing worse again. I'm getting an endoscopy done soon, but I wanted to see if anyone else has the same symptoms as I do and if anyone had any ideas of how to relieve symptoms.
Besides the regular symptoms of GERD like heartburn and lumpy throat, I also am not really ever hungry, or if I am, I eat very little and feel full so I lost a lot of weight, I have trouble swallowing food, dry mouth, sour stomach, dizziness while eating food, and sometimes I get really bad episodes of acid reflux that I feel dizzy and nauseous for about an hour?
Does anyone know why I get these episodes? The most recent one, I thought I was doing better so I had a pancake for breakfast and then had an acai bowl for lunch, but then that same night, I started getting dizzy so I took some tums but still had a really intense episode of reflux and my mom said it's because of the pancake, but does it happen so long after I ate? I would assume it would happen within a couple hours... does anyone know?
Also, does anyone have any relief ideas for either my intense episodes or my regular nausea? It's really frustrating how much it drains my energy to do everyday stuff...
Thanks! I appreciate any and all replies!
