Desperation has brought me here and reading the threads I am relieved I am not alone. I have been diagnosed with Gerd through a endoscopy the result of which was - mild reflux of the upper oesophagitis.
Together with the acid pains in my abdomen, chest and back I have found myself increasingly suffering panic/anxiety attacks and losing weight probably due to the fact that I am worried what certain foods will do and my skipping of meals now. When I do eat it is very bland meals that seem to offer no nourishment - chicken, rice, couscous, mash etc...
I have been supplementing with yogurts, organic honey and wholemeal bread to name a few.
I was originally perscribed with Lansoprazole which made matters worse so I was put on Omeprazole 20mg daily, after three weeks of which I have still felt no improvement. My doctor recently perscribed 300mg of Rantidine also which I am currently on day three of taking under the new regime....
My question is if anybody knows of nutricious food that doesn't t trigger Gerd symptoms and enables weight gain as I am worried that I am fading away.
I plan to contact my GP tomorrow to ask if the next step can be an appointment with a specialist as I feel that the doctor is just continually perscribing different drugs and not paying heed to my worries and concerns.
Thank you for helping me as I feel cornered in a dark place.
