Our expert says:
GERD is caused by the stomach acid going back up into the esophagus. This usually happens because the sphincter that is supposed to keep the stomach acid from returning to the esophagus is not working correctly. lancap can usually help, but the medication is given for much longer than 5 days, this is the same for a stomach ulcer. Did you go for a gastroscopy? If the pain and discomfort persist, this is the next step, as well as longer treatment with the Lancap. Good luck and I hope that you feel better soon.
