Hi.
Thanks for your query.
Noted the history and understood your concerns.
Since you have acid reflux and you are regurgitating everything or anything you eat, the causes need to be identified and rectified in the following ways since Prevacid is not helping you:
Get an Upper GI Endoscopy done.
Barium swallow and meal.
Clinical evaluation by a Gastroenterologist.
Addition of Domperidone and antacids too.
Further management as per the reports of investigations like if there is achalasia, may need surgery.
Stricture esophagus may need dilatation.
If anything else the treatment would be directed as per the cause found.
Backache may be due to esophagitis if in thoracic region.
If the the backache is low, may need an MRI of hte spine and muscles.
Take Percocet as advised along with muscle relaxer but see that they are not causing more regurgitation.
Take soft bland or better a liquid diet.
Plenty of oral fluids to avoid dehydration.

I have acid reflux for which I am taking Lansoprazole . I also take Gaviscon. Why is it always worse at night and why do I have problems getting my breath when at its worse? I am awaiting an endoscopy . I have changed my diet to eliminate known trigger foods. Will an endoscopy show anything conclusive? I could cope with indigestion-type pain but the shortness of breath is frightening. Any advice would be very appreciated.

4 year old son has the following symptoms.: abdominal distention, diarrhea, and vomiting for 1 week. Vomiting sunsided and abdominal distention persists, regular stool and stomach pain ( upper stomach- just below the rib cage in the middle). He was put on Zofran for nausea, 3 week course of Clarithro and Amoxicillin since H pylori cam back positive - done by pediatrician. Meanwhile the gastroenterologist did EGD post abx therapy said biopsy is normal and stomach looks fine and that his symptoms should resolve. HEr belief is that the nausea and abdominal pain is a result of a bad gastroenteritis. It has now been 6 weeks and the diarrhea returned for 24 hours with vomiting for 12 hours. HE now continues with the stomach pain which comes and goes and what he describes as his stomach rumbling for food. He has been on Prevacid for 5 weeks. Upper GI with follow thru is normal. IS there something else wrong?? PEdiatrician blood test for lactose and gluten sensitivity were negative. What could be the cause of this chronic stomach pain with nausea?
