Hi Thanks for writing in

Here are few tips which can help a patient with GERD :

1] Avoid spicy, fermented meals
2] Do not have heavy meals
3] Avoid smoking and alcohol
4] Wear loose clothes
5] Do not stoop
6] Do not lift heavy weights
7] Raise the head end of your bed
8] If Obese lose weight
9] If under stress - Manage stress levels by meditation and exercise

Apart from this a good PPI and a prokinetic will be of great help
Hope this helps

Hi

ESR by itself is a very non specific investigation

If she has any associated symptoms keep a watch, specifically ass you mentioned temperature

Keep a record of temperature at regular intervas same time of day atleast three to four times a day and see for the actual rise

If there are persistent peaks you should see a physician

Hope this helps
