Hello, does anyone else suffer from hideous reflux as part of their party bag of symptoms? I've had all the 'oscopies' and have a leaky valve as well as IBS. I'm prescribed 40mg Esomeprazole daily which until recently has always worked ok. However, lately, I feel like I'm swimming in acid right up to the back of my throat, and often into my mouth. It's burns horribly, and no amount of Gaviscon can keep it at bay. It's so bad that I've had to stop taking my pain meds, as swallowing anything, including food, makes it worse - so without my anti-inflamms, codeine and tramadol, I'm a wee bit sore and grumpy. I don't want to bother the GP because I feel a bit like I live there and would rather only go when things are terrible so he takes me more seriously. But, I'm not sleeping even more than usual because I'm having to sit upright to stop myself drowning in acid. I guess I'm hoping there is an old wives remedy out there that might assist? Please?
