I am assuming that your diagnosis of GERD
and erosive esophagitis
. I hope you were also tested for H.Pylori.
Ask the GI doctor, if these were done. You have been on PPIs for over three
months. I am not sure if you are on a single dose or twice daily dosage.
The best time to take the PPI is about an hour to hour and a half before your
I am sure you have been told to avoid excess caffeine, alcohol, tomato based
products, excess dairy . Milk contains calcium and it can stimulate acid biuldup.
You mention about increased levels of C-Reactive protein
. All that means is
that you have some degree of inflammation, regardless of the location.
If you are following the above guide lines , and still having same symptoms,
you should make another appointment with the GI doctor for re-evaluation.
Some times , changing to a different PPI might work.
I wish you well.
