When I was diagnosed with acid reflux my only symptoms at that time where coughing and a sore troat upon rising. I never felt any fluid coming up. Took antibiotics thinking it was a throat infection, throat and ear specialist was the one really who told me no infection just acid reflux.Nexium cured all of that at the time.
Now I should be taking two pills a day to be really well but I am only taking one in the morning, caus it may worsened bone loss.
Now after chemo, my reflux got worst, burning stomach if I don't watch what I eat a lot of small meals because of difficulty digesting foods.
Coffe is bad for reflux, good for you to stop it.
It's awfull not being able to take the medecine we need because of heartburns, specially the anti-inflamatory.
The gastroscopie that I had, they went down my stomach with a tube through my mouth. Only last
a minute or so. They gave me a relaxant, did not put me to sleep. It' not fun but worth it for peace of mind. They can take a biopsie to know if you have the h-pylori infection wich can give you heartburn.
Anyway if you are scared to get the test done, like I said before, try the Nexium and see if it helps, it's one way of finding if you have it, reflux untreated can be dangerous.
