I've had chronic regurgitation for the past year to year and a half.
My family doctor didn't have a clue, so sent me to a specialist
(gastroenterologist). He did an endoscopy and said "everything
looks fine down there!) Having no other answer, he put me on
Protonix- which is a stomach acid reducer. I don't think the acid
reducer does any good at reducing the reflux (regurgitation)
because even when I take myself off it, what comes up seldom
seems very acidic. The regurgitation happens often while eating,
and almost every night while I'm sleeping- regardless of what time
I had my last meal. When it happens at night, it usually wakes me
up, and a semi-thick slimy liquid is up in my throut or even works it's
way up to my sinuses. This is a very uncomfortable and disconcerting
problem. Eager to hear from anyone who has had a similar problem,
and more importantly, a cure or remidy. Thanks in advance for
anyone's help!
