I was diagnosed with hiatus hernia (quite large) in Nov 2015. I was placed on 80mg of omeprazole a day. (40mg twice a day). Acid symptoms seemed to abate although I would get silent reflux into my nose etc at night. In June 2016 I had phone manometer which revealed no real reflux issues although I was still on.meds during these tests. In September 2016 I was advised to stop meds as they were no longer necessary. I did this slowly and after 3 days of no meds I started to get heartburn symptoms so I stayed on 20mg of omeprazole. My throat began to get sore and I had a constant sore throat for weeks. GP advised me to resume 40mg twice a day and then added in ranitidine as the omeprazole was not working as well as it had done before! In December I began to get considerable regurgitation (occasionally food) and I started to feel like food was getting stuck. I now often get acid at night and sometimes during the day despite the medication. I am eating little and often and have been prescribed Motilitium to empty my stomach quicker. Nothing seems to be improving. I am due to see consultant. I have lost a lot of weight as eating has become difficult, painful and stressful. I am wondering whether anyone else has had a similar experience and whether there is anything else I could try?
