My husband has suffered from severe, chronic heartburn since he was 17 (he's now 24), his previous MD told him to take Nexium indefinitely and we have seen no improvement. He now has severe stomach pains, cannot hold ANY food down (he throws up EVERYTHING he eats), and has subsequently lost 35 pounds in the last 6 weeks because of how bad it has gotten. We're working on getting him health insurance, but he needs relief now. I switched him to Prevacid, and he said it helps a little, but he still has the stomach pains and ocassionally vomits. He can't live his life this way, I know he needs to go to a GI doctor, but is there any way I can offer him relief until then? We've cut out a lot of foods already, he doesn't eat citrus, tomato, coffee, soda, tea, alcohol, and I'm planning on cutting down fats since I heard lower fat foods are easier to digest with low stomach acid. Please help, we're worried if we can't get it under control something irreversible will happen.
