Oops sorry I didn't realize. Have you started eating any new/different foods?


I suffered with acid reflux for many years. Got my own theories on what causes these things but hiatus hernias seem to run in the family. My initial thoughts when reading your messages to get the doctor to look at that because they could be something going on there that may need to treat. Anyway I had a fundoplication done many years ago and it was life changing. I had it done by keyhole and I felt a little bit sick after the operation which the doctor said was my body's reaction to pain. I understand that now as there's a connection inexplicably between the gut and the brain. Anyway if you haven't considered it I would really consider this operation it was fantastic. No more Gaviscon! 👍☺

I also had a traumatic time with the endoscopy so in the end I had one done under a very light general anaesthetic which was amazing and gave them freedom to look at what was going on.
