Hi does anyone else suffer from acid reflux with their AIH/PBC ? I have been having trouble with this for years before my diagnosis. I recently had a colonoscopy for inflamed colon which aparently came up clear because they left me 8 weeks so anything inflamed had passed by then, but I also suffer nausea with vomiting and pain after eating. I eat well low fat and not much in way of meat and drink plenty of water and herbal tea.
I went to see my gp yet again about the sickness and she has decided I need another endoscopy to see what is going on in my stomach etc, but first I have to be checked for H-Pylori virus first. Ok, but I have had to stop my omeprazole. Gp did say I would have a little flare but OMG I have had full on acid reflux for 3 days now and nothing is helping. Was given gaviscon to take instead of omeprazole for the two weeks up to the test, its not working at all, I cant eat or drink anything.
Is there anything anyne can advise me to do about this and is it possible low acid could be my issue and not high acid....I expect if it was high the gaviscon would ease it down. I intend to ring the go tomorrow and tell them that the stomach acid is too much and bearing in mind my liver disease they should do the endoscopy anyway.
Thanks for any advice xx conniefused
