Please accept my sympathy on the loss of your father.
You are going through a stressful time at the moment and though the treatment you have been prescribed is the correct one for AR/GERD I feel a mild tranquilizer would help you at the present time.
Stress and worry can cause stomach problems and anxiety.
See your Dr and ask him for something to help you cope during this spell.
I wish you well, Solofelix.

Hi Donna,
AR and Nausea are very draining on the system and coupled with Stress you then have a real problem.
I myself know how you feel as I have a Hiatal Hernia, Diverticulitis and I have just been diagnosed with IBS.
These symptoms, like your own can be very debilitating and you can feel that life has dealt you a real bummer!!..
Keep on with the medication, I myself have been on Nexium/Domperidone and given time it will help. Some people take longer than others to feel the benefits.
I began to feel better after 10 days on this treatment but still get flare ups and up the dose accordingly.
Listen to your body, I have learned to do what I can when I can.
Make time to relax, it's really important to do so.
All the best, Solofelix.
PS. My GI Specialist told me that PPIs (NEXIUM) should be given 8 wks to see improvement.
thanks for your reply sometimes you think your alone and your mind plays tricks on you i.e i'm in constant discomfort i must be very ill ......... but tests are all negative so you know deep down your ok x sounds like you have been dealt plenty to contend with and i hope you are ok x i think its changing your diet etc that helps i have not drunk wine for ages or eaten fats etc and this does help slightly but as you say need to give the meds time to work its only been 2 days x thanks once again x tc x love donna x
