Acid reflux

I have acid reflux but symptoms are not high .I am running on antacid and librex by gastronologist.I change my life style and avoid trigger food and i get relief but it is possible that after long time i can eat as normal person or i have to follow strict diet because i heard that damage to LES is not reversible.

Hello, I can understand your problem since I have the same problem. It depends on the extent of damage to Lower esophageal spincter ,You have to follow strict diet for years if the damage is severe. You can only assess the regression on observing the symptoms closely . If symptoms are subsiding then your doing good . But you shouldn't start having all spicy foods soon after symptoms relieve . It's a slow process but if you put honest effort ,you will get rid of GERD one day.
