I added that I was in finals mode and that I figured the stress was a factor. "Why didn't you say so?" he asked. Okay, so he was thinking it was a temporary issue and decided to prescribe Protonix. Then he asked about how I've been doing with food. I said that I don't often feel hungry, but then I don't really ever feel "full" either, after eating what I SHOULD eat. I also said that I've had no real problem eating anything. He asked if the reflux had any residual food with it, and I said no -- which made him furrow his brow and exclaim that he was truly befuddled. He said that maybe, instead of needing an UNfill, I actually need a fill -- that the acid reflux is a result of being a bit too open, especially since food was not being held in my pouch and brought up with the acid.
However, because I am symptomatic he would rather try the Protonix for right now, let things settle down, and then schedule me for a fill when classes are over. That worked for me! I would have never assumed I was in need of a fill, but maybe he's right. Granted, that will put me on mushies over Christmas, but that's okay. :)
