Sammy, I got bad reflux too [maybe not as bad as you have]. But i feel like someone punched me in the solar plexus.

Sometimes i can get it when i taste it in my month [..nasty].

What are you doing now for it? And what are the doctors telling you to do for it?

[i know that there are sodium bicarb, other antacids, H2 inhibitors and proton pump inhibitors.]

Have they told you to take any of those?

And do you have ulcers?

What's the diagnosis?

*(As many as 70–90% of such ulcers are associated with Helicobacter pylori, a spiral-shaped bacterium that lives in the acidic environment of the stomach. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peptic_ulcer])

Basically mg I've had an endoscopy they found a hiatus hernia. They keep saying I'm young and it's unusual for it to be causing me trouble so I have to have a tube up my nose and down my throat and left there for 24 hours which is connected to a little machine which I have to press everytime I get reflux Im on my third type of ppi been taking hr2 ranitidine and prokinetics they don't help me much I don't have any ulcers I feel in despair with it all if after this 24 hour thing he tells me it's not reflux and it can't be treated I dunno what I'll do

You said you may have needed a surgical procedure. Did you ever have that surgery ? .....(Nissen fundoplication)?

--------------------------

What stage are you at with the hiatus hernia? .......Between B & C ??

I think you may benefit from breathing exercises [as much of a useless thing that may seem].

[Dr. Burkitt] He attributes the disease to insufficient dietary fiber and the use of the unnatural sitting position for defecation. Both factors create the need for straining at stool, increasing intraabdominal pressure and pushing the stomach through the esophageal hiatus in the diaphragm. [Yeah....i know...OK whatever]

I have a sliding hiatus hernia and it is pic c yes the fundoplication is what I was hoping the doctors would do the doctor I saw today was a specialist in doing this operation he told me he sees a 1000 people with this problem and only 100 can have the operation as if it's something to do with the esophogus and not reflux from the stomach the fundoplication would make things worse usually I'd put this sort of thing down to the doctor not wanting to do the operation because it's on the nhs they seem to be cutting back on all operations to try and save cash but I've gone privately

i talked to someone about it. He said, here in america, out of 1000 people with hiatus hernia only about 3 people get the surgery. It's really common for older people to have hiatus hernia.

There seems to be not many treatments for it other than the usual we discussed (Tums, etc.). Kinda like HPPD.

The doctor I saw told me that people with my problems 100 out of the 1000 get the op slightly more but still not great odds I'm certain the operation would help me it's just getting them to do it they want to keep ruling other things out this sort of problem would be so much easier to deal with if I wasn't already dealing with hppd I was holding out in pursuing treatment of hppd as I thought I'd be getting my stomach sorted out sooner rather than later but it doesnt look that way now so I'll probably ring my insurers and see if I'm covered for persistent migraine aura as it's the most recognized visual disturbance and book an appointment if I am otherwise go down the nhs route I need to cure these fucking health issues
