I was diagnosed with GERD at 16 with non-traditional symptoms after a year of throwing up 2-6x/day and losing 75 pounds. I started Prevacid at that time and continue on it now. I never really had heartburn. After starting the Prevacid, my nausea went away. Now when I try and stop I get heartburn, but I have no symptoms when I take it on schedule.

Friendships must be built on a solid foundation of alcohol, sarcasm, inappropriateness, and shenanigans.
