I had acid reflux so bad for over 12 years. My entire GI tract burned from mouth to rectum. Not kidding.
I would "spill acid" back up into my throat which felt closed and burning like mad. I did not want to eat
at one point and even water hurt.
No meds helped.
I can report to you that it is GONE!!!! but it took awhile (maybe 10 months? and I had to be patient)
and now, I am 2.5 years post DX and have no GERD symptoms whatsoever.
(neither does my Mom, who also took meds for GERD for many years and has been gluten-free for 2 years)
Hang in there!
