Can anyone advise me, as I am getting desperate. I am currently taking a massive dose of Ranitidine for heartburn and oesophagitis. After two and a half weeks it seems to have stopped working. So I went to my GP and she put me on Rabeprazole as well. That worked well for two days but I am now in pain. I have cut everything out of my diet that might be a trigger and only eat fruit, veg , fish, meat and drink water. What more can I do?

    Speaking from experience the best thing for me to get me back into balance is to pay attention to the PH of foods.  Of course finding out what the ph is of any food is a mission so following the advice of Dr Jamie Koufmann, from her fabulous book The Acid Reflux diet , I eat loads of vegetables, virtually no processed foods, cut right back on diary and wheat and only cup of tea or coffee a day.  Some fruits also have a high PH like citrus, berries and pineapple of all things.  Come to think of it I eat very little fruit mainly banana's, advocados and feijoas.  The other thing I do is stop eating or drinking at 5pm or 4 hours before I go to sleep.  My conditions which sound similiar to yours are 90 - 95% better, definetly worth a try.  

    All the best, I'm sure you will find a solution if you pay attention to your diet smile
