Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board


Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


[QUOTE=dcguy;4999677]You may need some anti-anxiety medication if nothing else works. I've had the same problems for almost 3 years now, on 60mg of Dexilant and supplementing all the time with Pepcid or Gaviscon or Pepto and nothing helped. In fact, after I stopped drinking alcohol and caffeine my problems actually got worse and I wound up in the hospital. I was getting sweaty hands and feet along with some faintness and weakness, which the doc said would not be related to GERD. So on a long shot they decided to put my on a low dose of Clonazepam and I'll be damned if it hasn't cleared up my symptoms completely for the past 4 days now. I was also getting the gnawing feeling in my stomach and it would go from side to side. Now I feel great, almost normal again, although the Clonazepam does make you drowsy and a bit zombie-like, but not enough to interfere with your day to day life I would say. GERD interferred with my day to day life WAY more and was horrible. Now I'm feeling better. Ask your doctor, you can always try for two weeks and see what happens. Even if you don't think you have stress in your life (like I thought) there can be subconcious things going on you don't even realize and this all affects the stomach. Good luck![/QUOTE]


hi dc guy
thanks for the info...i wonder why they would think anti anxiety meds would help with gerd/reflux etc...i never had heard of that...i am glad you are feeling better....so did they say WHY the anxiety meds help...like what it dows for GERd/REflux...just curious...as you said istopped caffeine etc..and it seemed worse as well...
I had some chinese food tonite,,,just a bit of wonton soup, and some rice...and holy crap does ithurt,,,i would say within 10 minutes of eating i felt so full and bloated it was horrible...well it still does...i took a digestive enzyme and a dgl and a pepcid and it still hurts and i feel gross..got that gnawing pain in my sternum on one side and gas x not helping either...i thought i was getting better,,,,,but obviously not as better as i thought....
i would really like to know why the meds helped...
thanks again
