    Hi Debs

    I'm not too bad, when i had the test i felt my symptoms weren't too bad but the next night when i had my tea i was in a lot of discomfort with acid burning my throat etc, i said to my son i wished i'd had that last night but it was too late, i did notice when i had my tea the night i had the tube in it was pulling a lot did you have that ? and the numbers kept going up and down, i don't know what they mean though.

    I will give it a few weeks and phone the doc etc to see if the results are through.

    How long have you been off your medication ?

    luv Kim

    I felt awful while the tube was in because like you said,anything that was larger than a pea-sized amount of food,it pulled a lot on the tube and swallowing became an art.I didnt read the metering equipment because I didnt want it to give a false reading and it was an art not to knock it so the plug didnt get pulled out of it.I was also advised to eat stuff that set me off like high-fat stuff,something I havent done for months due to me being on a diet and my lifestyle due to losing my gallbladder in the hope that it was the solution to my tummy problem.I had my test on 13th Feb and I went back on my tablets on the 16th,came off them on the 20th Feb.

    When you get your results for your ph test,make sure your doctor understands the results because my doctor had to ring the doctor that did the test to ask him what the results meant

    Hope this helps hun

    Phoned the hospital this morning for my results and they have written to my GP over a week ago and they want to see me in clinic in 2 months time, so i'm none the wiser because i phoned the doc's and they haven't got them yet but she did say they had a back log to do and to phone back on friday.

    So im not sure if they've found anything or not with them wanting me to go back to the consultant in 2 month's it could be standard procedure, hopefully i will know more friday.

    Kim,

    I was thinking about you today.I know that the test isnt nice but it is the one and only test that showed up anything from my personal experience.My experience has gotten worse over the last two weeks with no end in sight.To cut a long story short I have decided to pay for a private consultation with my consultant to try and find a solution.

    Hope everything goes well love,keep healthy

    Phoned docs today and they still couldn't find my results, so she phoned the hospital and they faxed them, she tried to read them and said my acid level was 10 which is normal but there was a lot of jargon she couldn't read so she's made me an appointment with my GP for 1st june that's the first available one so he can explain.

    Ive got to the stage in my life were i'm sick to death of it all and i don't think i'll ever get anywhere, ive had an ulcer and that bug thing, inflammed gullet twice and last one was inflammed stomach sad if my doc ends up saying everything is normal i don't know where i'll go from here, i'm so sick of it ruining my life, the day i had that PH test i wasn't ill it was the next day i was bad and i won't have that test again i hated it, i'd rather have the camera done at least it's over with sooner.

    Sorry to be a moaner but everyone of you will know how i feel and i wish you all the best and i hope in the near future we all will get better or at least somewhere near to better.

    Sweetheart I'm so sorry that your news was so negative,I know from experience that it is not easy to try to get treated for this affliction.My advice to you is to keep on at the consultants secertary and keep in close contact with your gp because in my case my gp has become like my best friend of late due to my frequent visits.I can sympathise whole-heartedly with the \"banging your head against a brick wall\"

    Keep your chin up love,I know its hard.Mail me if you need a shoulder or a talk :D :D :D
