Our expert says:
I am so sorry to hear that you are suffering so severely from GERD. I trust that you are under the care of a Gastroenterologist? If not, please ask your doctor to refer you to such a specialist, because you may have additional problems such as infection with a microorganism called Helicobacter pylori which could be exacerbating your condition. If you test positive for H. pylori, the specialist will also treat you with appropriate antibiotics. Both Nexiam and Altosec are what are called "proton pump inhibitors" with a similar action, so you should obtain relief with either one. If your GERD is due to excess acid production triggered by stress, then I would also recommend that you have psychotherapy with a clinical psychologist who can teach you how to control your stress more effectively without ruining your health.
Please get some expert medical and psychological treatment so that you can break this vicious cycle.
