I have Nutcracker esophagus , several food and drug allergies , chronic diarrhea, gerd for some and my last one showed Gastric erosion on my last endoscopy this past week. My 3rd GI. opionin the last 2 said they can no longer do anything for me. I am just hoping to feel better.

Hello,

You have to confirm which disease are you having. In the case of celiac disease, it may be improved after stopping of consumption gluten-containing food.

Other possibilities like lactose intolerence or irritable bowel syndrome or malabsorption syndromes etc.

Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is. Avoid alcohol consumption, fatty food, and caffeinated drinks.

Use tablet Pantoprazole before breakfast for one week. If symptoms not improved please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
