Update on severe reflux

Recommended Posts

I'm jumping for joy!!! It's been over a month since I've had an episode of reflux!!! I never thought it would happen. I've even been able to sleep in the bed with only 2 pillows for 5 nights in a row now. I feel like a new person. I give all the credit to all of you who gave me tips and advice and put it all to good use. I've eliminated all of my no-no foods, take my Reglan 4 times a day, eat small meals, Maalox at bedtime, Prevacid twice a day and go to bed on an empty stomach. It's all working for me and I'm so happy. I'm still a bit nervous at bedtime, always self-evaluating to see if I feel any pressure in my esophogus, but all has been well and it feels great! I still am tempted to eat in the evening, but then I just remind myself of the horrible reflux that would follow, and I'm able to resist temptation. Thanks again for all of your help.

Sending happy thoughts to all,

Michele Chere

I'm very happy for you! I know what you mean by having no symptoms as I suffer with this terribly too. I also have had no incidences where I have to take my GI Cocktail so I, like you, must be doing someting right. I can sympathize with anyone who has this as it is painful. I haven't lowered my bed and plan on keeping it up on its stilts. I don't eat after 7:00 at night and I really watch what I eat. I haven't had anything that could trigger it and don't plan on it either as the consequences are too grave.


So again congratulations and keep up the good work!!!!!


Warm hugs,
