... Thank you for the tips, the problem is I already have been following this, that's why my gastroenterology, decided not to prescribe PPI, and told me to keep using Gaviscon during the night since during the day I have not big issues except for clearing my throat, I will get the PH 24 Hours test.

... Does GERD/acid reflux run in the family? Perhaps you would want to suggest to your Dr. running an endoscopy/colonoscopy. I know it sucks, but you might have to take Prilocec EVERYday.

If I was as young as you are, I would try many alternative treatments before... (3 replies)

... Hi chrispyzs, Sorry you had a bad night. Make sure you don't lie too flat at night, I have two real plump pillows. If it's reflux you need to be elevated in bed. Another thing that I thought of and you get pain with that was H.Pylori. I had that two years ago. Your Dr might be trying you on a PPI to see how things work out but if there is no improvement I think he will... (12 replies)

... Hi there, I have been on double the dose of Prilosec (40 mgx2 daily versus 20 mgx2 daily) for 3 weeks, due to a sudden severity in my GERD symptoms (pain in esophagus, unable to eat or sleep for days despite diet change, raising head of bed, etc). I feel better (not totally normal but better) and would really like to wean myself back down to the 20x2 at the 1 month mark (... (1 replies)

... I can share what helped me, but other members have recommendations that are helpful. It sounds like you have developed LPR with the symptoms you list.
