Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


Hi,

I am a 52 years old female who is suffering from a severe case of GERD or?? I am a runner of 30 years, not overweight, and I do not smoke. My symptoms occured two months ago. My diet for the past two months has consisted of oatmeal/chicken soup/apples/water and little else. Even with drastic changes in lifestyle my symptoms are not subsiding.

For two months now, severe nausea for up to two hours after I eat, lump feeling in throat, it triggers my asthma to new heights (which I understand is a side effect of GERD), and I'm so extremly tired that it is difficult to get out of bed let alone out the door. My life has pretty much come to a screeching halt.

I had a colonoscopy six months ago-fine, endosocopy at the same time-fine. Doc still thinks GERD because they don't know what else to point to. I'm inclinded to believe theme and I feel the burning whenever I eat. I've also had a series of blood tests to rule out any other underlying conditions, stool sample, etc.

I cannot take med typically perscribed for GERD due to a very severe allergy to sulfites/sulphur. Docs have not found any meds without sylphur somewhere in the background so I am up a creek where that is concerned. Over the counter meds are out as well. I have been treating with a bland diet/lots of rest/stress reduction/ginger, papaya, goldenseal and marshmellow supplements.

I know this cannot be normal. Can't anyone out there help or point me in the right direction.

UGH...I so want my life back :-(
