I am 14 weeks pregnant, and I suffer from continuous severe acid reflux, from the past 7 to 8 weeks. I consulted my gynecologist, but she did not give any medicine. Antacids are not effective at all, and I have a feeling of food stuck in my throat and chest. It is very unpleasant and uncomfortable. I have even lost 6 kg within the last month, due to acid reflux and severe food aversion. Should I consult a gastroenterologist? I have tried taking Pentab and Gelusil.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I am sorry that you have severe discomfort.
I wish you get better soon.
