Hi again

Just wondering can anyone who has been on ppi more than say 15 to 20years tell me how they are now and if they have suffered side affects, we hear all the time about how bad they are for us, just wondering if there are many good stories

    Kate, have you looked into food intolerances? Gluten and dairy are infamous for causing AR and other digestive disorders, IBS being just one. I went gluten and dairy free and resolved a whole lot of issues. I never found that Gaviscon did anything for me, but eating more frequently helps a lot.

      Hi Rose

      My gi surgeon thought I might be celiac but test said no, but I am going to try go gluten free and dairy free and see if it will help, are you symptom free now, do you still take ppi?

      Really appreciate your help

    Sorry to jump on here but it's so interesting. I have been on omeprazole for 10 years or more and think I have exactly the same problem as you Rose. Low stomach acid. You say you eat every 2 hours and that would make a lot of sense but is it a meal or just a snack? Also what happens in the morning after a long period of no food through the night? My stomach jumps a lot and is a horrible feeling which makes me anxious and then I don't eat which then makes things worse! I have an awful sore throat too amongst other symptoms and very worried the damage both the PPI's have done and the acid cry
