Does anyone know if Kapidex works for silent reflux? I have tried everything. My digestive system is such a mess. I dont like RX meds, I stopped Nexium several weeks ago after being on it for 5 months with no change. I dont eat anything that would give me reflux. I have a lot of breathing problems around my diaphragm area. I dont like RX meds because you need acid to digest your food and taking PPI's stops the acid. I am not sure how Kapidex works. I am about 100 lbs, 5'4", 35 years old. I get the occasional chest pain, left arm pain (heart is fine) I burp a lot but not a lot of 'heartburn'. GI doc doesnt think its reflux, but ENT does. Thanks for your help!

Kapidex is also a PPI and decreases the amount of acid produced in the stomach in the same way as Nexium.
Your body may respond better to Kapidex than the Nexium.
Your GI is more qualified to make a diagnosis than your ENT specialist.

I was taking prilosec twice a day regardless of my diet. i eliminated citrus,tomato dairy spicy foods, I got a slant pillow for my bed as I usually had to sleep sitting up and nothing made a difference if I stopped the prilosec. I was recommended by my herbalist to start taking "Aloe Life"Herbal aloe "Stomach Plus Formula". I took it 3 times a day for 3 weeks and stopped the prilosec. I then tapered the Herbal aloe off and only take it maybe once every two days. I sleep like a baby. No sore throats,endless burping, chest pain. it is really a miracle cure for me. It is a liquid, a little strange to taste but worth anything.I DO NOT work for this company!I am a retired 69 year old woman who was told by my medical doctor that due to my age it was something I would have to put up with for the rest of my life.I was concerned about the side effects of Prilosec and that was why I searched around for an alternative

manukaguard nutralize saved me. I can eat or drink just about anything i want, modestly and no reflux or Rx meds any more. If I'm going out and know I'm going to over indulge, a teaspoon of this stuff before and after and i sleep through the night like a baby - no more chest pain that feels like i'm having a heart attack - went several times to the hospital with those events only to find out i was having heartburn

I think your ENT gave a smarter prognosis than your GI doctor since what you say makes sense... I have the same problem with breathing problems. It is true that the PPI's cause so many problems since I have had many serious problems from Omeprazole... I have all the symptoms you have such as the chest pain, arm pain, etc all from Acid Reflux problems diagnosed by my GI doctor... my problem is the medication. Can you tell me if you tried the Kapidex and if it worked?
