Julie - I have three children. My youngest Katie is my refluxer. My first Ben was very colicy and is ADHD. My middle Jakob is pretty easy going. Katie had it bad as a baby no sleep for two years. She was on Nutramagin, Prevacid and Zantac. Thought we were through it but after age three it came back big time. After her scope she was put on Prevacid 45mg a day and mylanta as needed. Scope was in Sept. Showed damage in stomach and espophogus. It took about 7 months of medication and Reflux diet for her to start feeling better.
bile reflux and gastritisI think I mentioned that Katie's scope revealed mild gastritis. I was reading that bile reflux can often be a culprit. Would they have been able to identify and diagnose the bile reflux from the endo if she has it?

|Sometimes, they can actually see the bile refluxing during the scope! Ir can also noticed during the PH/Impedance probe as well as visual damage.
Another clue would be frequent vomiting of bile, which is yellow/green.||Check with your
