A Little Update
(I wrote this on August 20, 2013, but I wanted to ensure it was put in the proper place in the line-up, so that’s why I put on a different date.)
I didn’t actually have acid reflux…I guess it was just an assumption on the part of the ER physician.
I went to see a gastroenterologist that November and he said that it was probably an extreme reaction to stress…I didn’t have the symptoms long enough for it to actually be reflux and I could stop taking Prilosec that day, if I wanted to.
I’m glad I railed against my doctor of the time and accepted her alternative of going to the gastro. She wanted to have me have a camera sent down my throat to ensure that I didn’t have ulcers or some crazy thing. Thank goodness for specialists!
