Hi guys, my name is Emma and I am 17 years old, I've had as some like to call it 'GERD' for around 4 years now.
I have suffered severely from it even to the point where I can't get myself out of bed because I have hardly any energy. I get sever heart burn, integestion (or however you spell it), abdominal pains which seem to travel around the back of my spine ( more to the arch part ) which gives me severe back pains as well.
After returning to the doctors with the rubbish PPI medicines such as Omperazole and others.
I final went for the camera down the throat! Can't remember what it's called and found out that even though I'm 17 I have a small hiatus hernia.
But now I've been told that they doctors haven't helped me in anything! I'm still trying to pull myself out of bed for college in the mornings with this pain and all I am getting from
The doctors is ' healthy eating plans!' Eating does not start my acid reflux, it comes and goes as it pleases, nothing good or drink wise can calm it down either, the only medication that work is wrong iburofen tablets, but I have to take a lot of them & it can give me olsers!?
I've elevated my bed, don't work, hot water bottles, don't work, medication just about works but not what my doctor has prescribed me with?! I've changed my diet, I don't drink fizzy drinks, hardly eat fizzy sweets or too none! Small meals instead of big ones? Still not working
Someone help? What can I do to help my pains!
