Very discouraging week. Only 1 "good day" to speak of where I was medication free and not feeling too bad. To be honest, I feel that I am right back where I started more or less. Burning in the throat, pressure in the esophagus, watching what I eat, exercise-induced discomfort.
Good things are that I am still no longer getting liquids coming back up after drinking, which is wonderful. And I don't have the constant burping after eating -- which is amazing.
And the PPIs help when I take them. I've decided to go back on them and see if I can manage with just 10mg, which is the smallest dose that is still therapeutic. Zantac does nothing.
Fingers crossed things improve!
