I am very concerned about my daughters acid reflux. She has had it since she was born and it seemed like it was getting better then the past 2 years she has been vomiting, complaining of stomach and chest pains, and having trouble breathing. She was diagnosed with asthma last month because of her acid reflux. She is on the diet her doctor put her on and her bed is elevated. She has missed 21 days of school this year and it seems like she catches everything that is going around. I have thought about homeschooling her because she gets sick so much but she likes school so well and would miss her friends if I did. It just bothers me to see her sick and the school does not understand that she is really sick because of her acid reflux. She is always going to the school nurse and she gives her crackers or peppermints for her stomach. Even though I have told the nurse that my daughter is not aloud to have peppermints because it causes her acid reflux to get worse. We are going to see the specialist Monday and they are going to run some test on her. I am just really scared that she is going to have to have surgery. I was wanting to know if any of you have the same problem and some advice for me. I am just really worried about my little girl.
