I started with what was eventually diagnosed as Acid Reflux around September last year.
When I first went to the doctors he put me on a dose of Omeprazole (probably around 40mg but dont quote me on that) gradually by the end of the year getting down to 10mg , which is what I am on now. This apart from a blip over Christmas with rich food and beer has seemed to be working.
However two weeks ago we attended a wedding which usually equals rich food and beer and you would be right.We attended over a full weekend staying over and eating in the Hotel restuarant on the Friday night.It wasn't until the middle of the night that I started with heartburn,something I hadn't really suffered with since the start to this extent.It came and went , I keep taking my 10mg then everything is fine again.That was until the Saturday night after the wedding when it flared up again.(So ok rich food and beer, theres the problem) It again cleared up.
Last weekend we were out again eating and drinking, I am still feeling the effects I think.
I am not one who goes out every weekend by the way, far from it although it might read like that.
So where I am at present
I am taking 10mg Omeprazole
I have had a couple of bouts of heartburn over the past few days but nothing major.
I have got the horrible sour taste in my mouth every morning.
A slight sore throat that comes and goes through the day.
A dull sort of ache ( not even a pain ) in my stomach.
2 or 3 sleepless nights over the last week.
