Ive been on this forum on and off for six months and am still here, with no visible signs of improvement to my reflux, still desperately looking for help. I have seen gi consultant again, who's put me on 600mg Ranitidine and 20mg Pariet with a view to gradually cutting back, which did work before, in fact June and July were pain free. But here I am in the middle of the night again, unable to sleep forpain. I have had nothing to eat since 7pm so why Is there acid
present? Could it be that my LES is now getting weaker? I watch
what I eat, no triggers, plain food etc but now the heartburn isn't
suddenly triggered it just gradually comes on throughout the day
and builds up. I've raised my bed but still can't sleep.I think my only option now is surgery- I have nothing to lose. My life is in ruins. My GP is sick of me and my Consultant can only offer huge quantities of drugs that don't work, although he he did say I was "on the cusp" for having surgery. Advice please, on any other tips for relieving the pain and for going about getting surgery, where to go etc.
