hi all. I'm on 80 mg esomeperazole and 600 mg ranatidine and it's not working. I wake up in a morning and within 10 minutes the burning starts. I'm hard,y eating anything, today I only had dry bread, I've cut out everything that could be triggers but it start before I eat and then doesn't stop. I'm in so much pain. Even water cause another wave of burning. I'm desperate for some advice. I've read things about gerd being caused by a lack of acid not excess and there's tonnes of contradictory advice about manuka honey etc. I'm seeing a gastroenterologist in September but I'm terrified he's going to dismiss me like the last doctor did as he could find no evidence of gerd on endoscopy or barium swallow. I don't know whether to just stop the Meds and see what happens.
