a little lost....
Hello... SO I am new here and I think I need help! HAHA So I have a 5 month old son who just got diagnosed with GERD today... I see his regular dr tomorrow where I'm supposed to figure out what my next step is... Here's our story: He had RSV in the end of January so they have contributed his fast breathing to that (sorry when they tell me its his not his lungs and that he'll just get better NOT ok for me!) So finally an ER dr figured it out after 2 months of my son breathing 3 x faster then he should because his esophagus has been so swollen loss of weight and no growth in 2 months... Sigh so now I don't know exactly what I'm supposed to ask the dr or where I go from here.... I FINALLY got an answer (after being sooo persistant) but they gave me my answer and sent me home with a simple thicken his formula, put him in a crib wedge, don't lie him down after feeding and go see your dr in 3 days for more info.... YIKES I'm a BIT over whelmed.... So I googled the website the drs gave me (this) and well here I am.... Thanks for your help... I need it! LOL

How did the follow up appointment go? Do you have a treatment plan now? Are you still needing help?
Check with your
doctor first!
