    Hi Michelle, I know your feeling WELL. I am sorry because not only is it painful but it takes over your mind and causes anxiety

    Anxiety is a HUGE contributor to acid reflux so try your best to stay chill. Also do you have a GERD pillow in your bed....Its important to sleep propped up...

    Start looking at a Acid Reflux cook book too...they guide you to recipes and what to eat and what not to eat.

    Glad you are seeing someone....Sure they will help you too

    Hi michelle: Sorry to hear what your going through. What you are describing is Gastritis. It is an inflamation of the stomach lining. The stomach has been damaged. You can spend a lot of time trying to figure out what to eat or you can just face it and go vegetarian for a while. The vegetables have to be organic because you don't want any unknowns in the treatment. If you have a juicer, it is the best method of getting enough nutrients to survive and heal. Drink small amounts every hour.

    When I was at my worst I used a lot of vitamin E liquid and low acid organic olive oil. A few drops of E every hour helps to heal. Right before bed I swish a gulp of olive oil in my mouth and swallow. Don't rinse. While you sleep you will occasionally swallow and get a small dose.

    You can try adding organic probiotic yogurt and see f you tolerate it well. It will help balance your digestive bacteria and prevent gas and burping.

    You must incline your bed 8 inches to let gravity help. Sleeping on the left side is best for GERD.

    Do not take any pills or drugs at all if possible. They can chemically burn the stomach and prolong Gastritis. It can take a year of treatment to heal, and you will need to be careful for many years, it is prone to return.

    If you have night time reflux, you can try my carbonated water treatment. Using fresh plain or flavored carbonated water.

    4 times a day drink 10oz of CW. Hold down the burp for 5 minutes. Then slowly release it.

    Each week add 5 minutes to each session. After 4 weeks you will be up to 20 minute sessions. This will strengthen the lower esophageal sphincter.

    Keep me posted to your progress.

      it's 3:06 am and a rude awaking with heart pounding feeling like I'm on Fire. Sensation that sicks to you like a Horrible nigthmare thought I was going have call 911 and burn up. please forgive me I can hardly read having .anxiety so bad I feel like I can scream like I'm just not going to get through this on my God help me please. These people don't know what Thier doing one minute they call something over the counter because they don't have it in stock then I get a message stating medication is ready. instead of counter it's Rx my I didn't have high blood pressure but I do now . My head feel like it's going to explode. My God These people have runied me with medications I never really have been on anything. I have a hard time sleepy on left side do to hip problems I can't believe this don't think I can continue this my head feels fried. Please pray for me can't seem to find a doctor from this company that's interested in putting me in the hospital to get this under control. My chest is burning fire right now. This has been going on for six months now.

      My stomach has become my time now for every two hours it lets me know when to eat screaming for food mainly at night I'm darned if do and darned it don't. I can't keep weight on me what ever this is ,keeps burning up every possible oz puff food eaten. I'm coughing my throat is raw I've now choking as well as wheezing like .asthma I see all of how this extremely escalated to this now every now and then I was getting this burning and gerd now is coming every night now. and the organization that I retired from unfortunately is a healthcare and they're not doing anything they just didn't even know what they're doing. I feel like I'm slowly just dying and I'm a wind up something that terrible is going to happen to me I'm getting so afraid that I want to wind up being here by myself and one day somebody's going to come in here and find me and I won't be breathing. sorry everyone but I am so afraid now I went from a healthy person to someone that had h-pylori and all these medications are complaining about I can't take this and can't take that because I'm not used to taking meds to someone now that is they have strictly for my life are complaining about I can't take this and can't take that because I'm not used to taking meds to someone now that is they have strictly for my life. I don't know you all the ones that have stopped by and become so close to me it's just such a moment of comments you have no idea I'm so passionate about people wondering what I did for a living and I can't believe this is happening to me! and that these people put a Band-Aid on things and they just don't want to spend money to have people admitted because of the cost but they'd rather have you come back and forth back and forth back and forth like a ping pong ball when all they do is give you some Maalox and tank you up with saline for dehydration send me back home and if you have any problems tell you to come back. Think I'm going to talk to someone. This is not right life is slipping away from me.

      signing off I can't it anymore.

      Wow! You are in a serious situation. If you have been definitely diagnosed with H Pylori, you will need to start treatment in the future. In the meantime You may need to start on a acid blocking drug. When I was taking esomeprazole I would open the capsule and swallow the tiny pills with lots of water, that way they won't settle in one spot and burn.

      H Pylori is a bacteria infection of the digestive system that can erode the protective lining and expose the sensitive tissue to stomach acid. When you eat, the food absorbs the acid temporarily and makes it feel better, but as soon as the food passes there is more acid left behind.

      The vegetable juicing I mentioned above won't trigger any acid production. And they provide the nutrients you need to heal. Juicers can be found at second hand stores and Walmart.

      Hang in there. Many of us have been where you are now. You can overcome it successfully and get your life back.

      Make sure you submerse the vegetables in a clean pan. Add 5 drops of chlorine or 1/4 cup of vinegar to disinfect it. Rinse well.

      hello Gillian.

      I'm truly sorry to hear that your having nasty issues with this God awful reflux. Yes I get the burning too at times it's unbearable like I'm losing it. There's a test call esophageal manometry this test checks your acid flow amongst many other GI concerns I'm praying this will give a reading that can be corrected with the meds diet and probiotics if you haven't reseached this then speak your Dr. Never knew the many people that suffer from GI problems in beginning to wonder I worked in healthcare for 33 years and yes stress is a great concern. I don't smoke drink and am a clean eater my flora was damaged due to medications.. I'm not by the on taking drugs unless absolutely necessary. Today s world we live in a toxic world. and this is a multi-million or billion dollar industry for pharmaceutical Market which I don't support like I said unless it's and this is a multi-million or billion dollar industry for pharmaceutical Market which I don't support like I said unless it's absolutely necessary. This whole ordeal has wiped me out but I have try and be postive in the mist of this darkness and I pray that dig deep for strength knowing there's hope. After all broken crayons still color! .Wishing us the best.

I am eating a little bit however my stomach does not feel like my stomach the middle portion of it just aches feels like I'm dehydrated a lot of times and I go to coconut water a little bit of alkaline a lot of I should say alkaline water I don't know what to think anymore I'm trying to Wing myself off of these pump inhibitors the esmeozole I think it is. I can't believe these doctors and I retired from Healthcare and it's just so unbelievable that I'm on the other end of the spectrum even though I understood and was very sympathetic to so many patients but the and I retired from Healthcare and it's just so unbelievable that I'm on the other end of the spectrum even though I understood and was very sympathetic to so many patients but the company that I work for and I retired from Healthcare and it's just so unbelievable that I'm on the other end of the spectrum even though I understood and was very sympathetic to so many patients but the company that I work for I feel like they just don't really care sorry but this is frustration. and don't really want to refer you out because it's a HMO I'm thinking about just going to John Hopkins myself and have someone check me out. Horrible money making business!

      six months ago I was recovering from h-pylori which I was taking Amoxicillin 500mg 4 times a day. along with some other meds I don't know because I threw them out but I know it was 3000 mg a day of antibiotics could only a tolerate for 7 days it had me in the hospital from side effects.

      then they waited and they tried probiotics and enzymes for about a month that didn't work my stomach was messed up and enzymes for about a month that didn't work my stomach was messed up.

      then they tried another regiment which was Flagyl and some other stuff the same regiment it was about 3000 mg a day with Pepto only tolerated it for 7 days I started getting disoriented with that you wanted with thrush on my tongue .

      the last regiment was tetracycline with some kind of metro metro zone or something like that I can't remember the name of it I had a bad reaction to that as well by this time I stomach was just my . however I had an EGD done they said it was eradicated the H pylori.pantoprazole then I wound up with taking because of this acid reflux20 mg which didn't do anything so they change to omeprazole I was on Omeprazole for like 3 months it just seemed like they didn't even check to see what was happening with me I was still having a lot of discomfort with my stomach burning feeling like the bottom was going to fall out then it went from acid reflux to shooting up in my stomach and my throat which sent me to the hospital. all my tests and God word negative according to what they was saying seemed like I had maybe was the beginning of diverticulitis they said but the company said no. so now they've been putting me on Nexium I've been on that for like 60 days and that does help but it did not help as far as my stomach and I've been losing seal weight that's what I've taken the test for acid however it's been almost a month now little under a month and I have no results as of yet so that's where I'm at so that's where I'm at. so I can only eat clean food salmon baked sweet potatoes mashed potatoes and broccoli oatmeal a little bit of weight I gained it looks like I just came off because my stomach has been acting out again really bad.. also lack of sleep I've guess I'll be getting a little disoriented of late frustrated because I haven't heard back from anyone

      And also was taking surcralfate.. I'm so afraid I stopped it because I didn't like the way I was feeling and it seems in my stomach was just getting so to me inflamed and just developing other feelings inside that just is not normal for me I mean I went from bloating to slight bloating to all of this with their medications and I'm not one to take meds so it's been rough. The center of my stomach gets this annoying grinding almost like dehydration sometimes a lot I should say and it just feels like a puts pressure on my way so much activity there it puts pressure on my colon or something and it makes my legs weak I don't know Jonathan I'm just. I don't know Jonathan I'm just so frustrated now appreciate it though your response.

      meant to say I am taking or on eoomeprazole. x2 daily was taking probiotics. but stomach out of whack ...

      I apologize for all these grammatical errors but I'm running on only a couple hours sleep and I'm so tired I can't even hardly function right now I'm trying to get it together I get anxiety. take a Valium every now and then keep my Saturday completely mam supplements which is of a regular vitamin multi and calcium due to Bone or osteoporosis that I have so I'm just feeling kind of crazy but I appreciate everything in the comments that I've had it's more than what I've gotten for my own GI doctors which has been 5 that just don't seem to know anything and don't want to refer you outside GI doctors which has been five that just don't seem to know anything and don't want to refer you outside.

      thanks again Blessings.

      Thank you. That information does help. I was also taking Nexium over two years ago. I recommend that you wean off slowly over 60 days. If you swallow a whole capsule it will dissolve in a spot in the stomach and cause a chemical burn. I would open each capsule and subtract 3 % of the tiny pills each week. Just draw a 1/4 inch circle on paper and remove that amount. Now take the remaining loose tiny pills with 1 cup of water, but only with food. After 30 days you will be taking only half of the tiny pills.

      Here are some things you can do to protect the stomach. Remove these from your current diet:

      salmon

      baked sweet potatoes

      mashed potatoes

      oatmeal

      All of those are difficult to digest and cause extra acid.

      In the morning I make an ORGANIC vegetable smoothie. Carrots, spinach, apples,strawberries or blueberries. Blend on high speed 1 minute. Then on very slow low speed add 1 cup organic soy or whey protein powder and 1 cup organic yogurt. Slowly drink 16oz of smoothie.

      Put the extra smoothie in a large jar and refrigerate.

      You can live on this smoothie drink for many months while you heal.

      I used these to heal the stomach:

      Marshmallow tea

      Liquid natural vitamin E, a few drops every hour. 1 opened capsule before bed.

      Low acid olive oil. 1 teaspoon every hour. 2 tablespoons before bed.

      a standard calcium carbonate antacid. Chew the tablet if you feel burning.

      Gaviscon can also help. It lasts longer for getting through the night. incline the head of your bed by 8 inches or as much as you can.

      Soon you will start feeling better. Your weight will stabilize. You mental state will improve. Keep me posted. John
