April 23, 2020 Upper GI Disorders, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

Hello all! I was diagnosed with GERD in February 2020. My symptoms started around October 2019, leading to an urgent care visit after Christmas due to severe nausea. This is one thing you don't see much, as nausea usually isn't one of the prominent symptoms. I almost never get heartburn or actual acid reflux (very grateful for that!). That's only due to a careful diet and medications however, a

 I was diagnosed with Gerd about six years ago after being scoped. Since then my discomfort is pretty much 24/7  with no relief. For some reason the drugs that I’ve tried do not work on me.

I wanted to share my story because, after many years of suffering the symptoms of GERD, I think I'm finally starting to see light at the end of the tunnel. I've always been very apprehensive about using medication to treat this awful condition, particularly Nexium because I've read a lot about the long-long side effects, so I tried to modify my diet to avoid the constant burping, heartburn and
