Since I was a child (I am now 71) I have regurgitated most meals. I am in constant stomach and esophageal discomfort. I hv an adjustable bed to help keep me at an angle high enough to reduce reflux, but I never seem to be able to fill my lungs. All my GPs have sent me for camera work and confirmed that I 'probably' hv malfunctioning sphincters, but never offer a surgical answer? Why? I feel this may have been a Diaphram problem all along due to my sudden lack of stamina. It would be wonderful to finish my life without this non stop ache...any suggestions please?
