Anyone heard of this?
just read an interesting article online.
refractory gerd seems to be the condition I may have. It is when despite being on PPIs for an extended period you don't get better. And apparently it's reasonably common!
im now taking pantoprazole 20mg twice daily: 30 minutes before breakfast and dinner., but my chest still hurts throughout the day. My previous problem of continual burping has gone away thankfully after being on digestive enzymes for 2 weeks, so think I had a problem properly digesting my food which is now sorted and I do feel much better(apart from chest pain).
anyhow article made me think about taking amiltriplyene again which I have used in the past for other pain issues( eye/facial pain and hip pain). Worked well for those conditions as amiltriptylene is a nerve blocker.
i am desperate to get better, but will keep doing everything else as well ( DGL, alkaline diet, sleeping on left with a raised bed and eating 3 hours before going to bed)
