Well I went to my doctor this morning... printed out that whole thread from bbforyears (http://www.badbreathhalitosis.com/phpBB ... 08&start=0
) and poured my heart out.
She sat, listened and took notes. In the end she prescribed me carafate ... said it was an excellent medication ... along with a ppi (pantoprazole). She's also going to test me for h.pylori which I haven't been tested for before. She also said that along with acid and bile that comes up in reflux, partially digested food can come up and sit in your esophagus/back of throat which can cause the really bad taste/bad breath.
And she pointed out that the problem with ppi's and acid reflux is a lot of times you don't start seeing results for a couple of months. It takes that long for it to start healing and working. And people give up on it too fast and stop taking medication when they needed to continue and give it time. Just thought I would throw that out there for ppl who thought they did not get any relief from ppi's. But the carafate should help initially untl the ppi starts working....
I will start taking the medication tonight!
