I was strolling on the internet one night. Looking for home remedies for GERD & gastritis. I have suffered from acid reflux as a child. Also some cases of gastritis. About a year ago i was diagnosed with GERD. They prescribed me pantropozole. If anyone knows this medication. It is great! Everything was great! I could eat foods i loved. Didn’t have to worry about the constant burping , and burning in my chest and back. Or the stomach pain. Recently , I’ve noticed some changes . GERD has returned … i had a lump in my throat, bleaching , sensitive belly, oh and the burning in my chest and back was unbelievable. It ruined me. For about a week, i struggled . I felt like i was having a heart attack. My left arm was hurting , my chest was burning , i was nauseous. I couldn’t even eat or drink anything . Not even water with out feeling sick. Well ER ran tests , blood works, chest x-ray all came back fine. Chalked it up to GERD and acute gastritis . they put me on Pepcid now. And it seems to be working a little . (Besides the stomach pain). And a sore throat. (Sinus issues ). But I’ll take what i can get. You are not alone. There is a lot of us suffering from this disease. And it sucks. Try ginger tea. There are herbs out here than can heal us!
