Hi I had mild indigestion and constant burping and felt bloated after food. I eventually had an endoscopy and was diagnosed with a hiatus hernia.
The endoscopy has made everything 10 times worse and doctors are not interested I have seen 3 now all say it's a life long condition learn to change your diet etc. I was initially on 20mg omeprazole but that was increased to 20mg twice a day as had no effect. It seemed to get better for a bit but then things got worse again so I decided to stop taking it and I am actually no worse off if anything slightly better.
Current symptoms are indigestion and mild pain after most food or drink I often feel tired and have taste in my mouth, or feel thirsty. The omeprazole was making me feel really bloated.
Feel really lucky reading some posts on here but worried about it getting worse and really confused about what to do as I can't seem to get it settled with or without medication and doctors just don't seem interested.
Milk makes it worse and I have been advised the body reacts to it as alkali by producing more acid?
Any advice or comments welcome many thanks
