Sky, thanks for the reply. No, only omeprazole though. Ack, I was informed by one of my friend who suffers GERD that it's not ideal to depend on PPI meds since they could make your bones brittle in the long run. They're fairly expensive too. I wish I could just get through this so I don't need to depend on medicine anymore for every single day.
Sun, OMG I think you are describing it well. It's like a gnawing sensation, isn't it? It usually comes after you eat then goes away when you eat and then only comes back. For me, it doesn't always happen but it extremely bothers me when it does.
I just ate dinner 2 hours ago and after an hour or so, I started having the same hallow feeling in my tummy although it was mild. I am not drinking ginger brew with lemon grass and it seems to be helping.
I just wish this is just a simple case of gastritis. I am worried that it might develop into something scarier...
