since my initial posting, I have been living on Cream of Wheat, bananas, chicken breast and a few veggies. I have lost 25 pounds. Had to cancel the first endoscopy because of snow; have it rescheduled for Tuesday. Head of bed is four inches elevated. Hope I wil have some answers soon.


Sounds like something far more serious than simple GERD.
Good luck.

@Miller,
Endoscopy showed gastritis, H. pylori bacteria and Barret's esophagus. Took an arduous round of antibiotics for the bacteria which was making the gerd worse, changed to Nexium from Protonix. Weight loss has slowed, and am beginning to add thing back into my diet. Doctor will monitor the Barrett's with endoscopies to watch for cell changes. Am feeling better. Thanks for your posting

I'm surprised you don't have an ulcer.

Can you drink milk?

@Miller,
No ulcer. And no, I don't tolerate dairy anymore.

How about eating only 2 meals a day? Morning and noon?
