Can't keep ANY food down
My husband was diagnosed with acid reflux by his primary physician about 4 months ago. He does not have pain or symptoms except when he eats. Then he is simply usable to keep food down. He has good days and bad days, but currently he has been unable to keep anything down for four days. The only exceptions are Ensured and ice cream! He has tried Aciflex, Nexium and Reglan plus all of the over the counter drugs. Nexium worked great for 2-3 weeks then stopped working. It does not seem to matter what he eats. I read "Heartburn for Dummies" and they say that bread should be easy to eat and ice cream should cause problems....but it is just the opposit. We do not have insurance and cannot afford to see a specialist. Does anyone have any suggestions?
