Very confused!

Posted , 6 users are following.

I had scope 5 years ago. Was told 2cm burning at bottom I'd oesophogus so would be on PPI forever. Took them daily and all ok. Then had a major flare up in Jan with ins as well as oesophogitis. Doc prescribed ezomeprazole and peptac. Started on this then eventually calmed slightly then flared up again. Was then told to start taking 2 a day. After about a week the burning was still there maybe even worse. Watching diet etc. Went back to doc, was told to cut back to one a day as well as anti sickness tablet which I took for short time. Bottom line was still burning. Yesterday I didn't take ezomeprazole and now no burning. Going to see GI doc next week. Any suggestions. Also just bought Manuka honey to try.

    You mean you have Barrett's esophagus with a lenght of 2cm?  Well, if alternative meds help you than why not try even more: Apple cide vinegar, aloe vera, dgl licorice, manuka honey as you stated. Also if you get minor heartburn then try ranitidine which is h2 blocker.

    Yes I'm thinking too low acid rather than too much. If ppis make things worse then it must mean you have low acid? I would try things that aid your digestion. Digestive enzymes, acv etc
