My doctor wants me to go on ppi for 4 - 8 weeks. Nothing else seems to be working, lifestyle changes and otc pills etc. etc. Of course I don't want to touch ppi - I understand that I need to go off slowly, but what I don't understand is how do you distinquish between if the pills worked or if the pain/heartburn will be from the rebound?
The other thing is, if it turns out to be from hiatal hernia, then it's either staying on ppi forever, or having surgery? It seems that there are no alternatives?
