I've never been so happy for my child being ill in my life!
Around Thanksgiving day Atalia's reflux started reversing to what it was like when she was 1-2 months old. Not sleeping day or night, arching during feedings, me having to hold her at night and watch her silent reflux and arch literally dozens of times and hour... She was until recently pretty stable, had some bad days due to teething (but I could tell it was teething) but nothing like this. She started having this awful cough Saturday and recently a runny nose (but she was coughing when refluxing, and sometimes she got a runny nose during teething... ) Sunday I called the GI office after she was awake for 13 hours and her prevacid was increased to 22.5 mg. Today I took her to the pedi PRAYING for an illness- something that could explain this HORRENDOUS setback. Praise God-she has a cold and an ear infection!! I never thought I would be sooo happy to hear that my child had a cold. I just pray that she is close to her normal in a week or so. Amalia never got ill when she was little (first antibiotic and only antibiotic she has been on was at 16 months of age)., so I never knew how absolutely horrible the reflux can be when they are ill this little. Keep praying for us. Thinking of you guys and wish I could be here more often- but little time (Amalia has been ill 2X in the last three weeks,,,-viral stuff thank God- my husband and I 2 weeks ago..) I'm supposed to start to work- as soon as Atalia gets better. Praying ..Love ya guys. God Bless

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.
I still find it unbelievable how a cold or virus can send reflux out of control.

Hope she feels better soon.

My name is being used fraudently to ill represent me. Please be cautious of any information you receive with my name. including engi.nowaira.net, engi@nowaira.net, Engi@nowaira.us, anything from anyone claiming to be Engi Nowaira online. Otherwise, I will be representing myself in person so that everyone will have opportunity to identify me in person.
My previous drivers license was also stolen. The new one has extra security features on it.
I hope she will heal quickly and things will get a lot calmer. It is always scary to see the reflux pop up time and again.

Thank you soooo much everyone. I praise God because last night although she was coughing up a lot (with a lot of phlegm- she is soooo congested) I did not have to have her in my arms all night because the acid reflux was sooooo much better. She still threw up most of her middle of the night bottle- but she could sleep more. Thanks for your prayers. God Bless.
Check with your
doctor first!
