Silent reflux

Postby molly » Sun Apr 24, 2011 11:25 pm

Anyone gone/going through this? DD has just been diagnosed with it... Feeling pretty overwhelmed as she is losing weight and refusing to feed for most feeds... Typical reflux symptoms - arching back, screaming, fussiness, body stiffness etc. See my Dr on Wednesday and the pedi next week. Also think she may have a dairy intolerance due to excessive wind pain and also dealing with hearing problems.. UGH! :cry:

:wave: Us! DD had silent reflux. We had many of the symptoms you listed but she would vomit and swallow it back down so she never really "spit outwards". Pedi gave us a Rx for Zantac and after a couple of days, it starting working and she would nurse.
I did a dairy elimination and it improved but the symptoms still came back after I stopped the Zantac. It wasn't until I eliminated corn and grain products from my diet that I was able to stop the meds. We haven't had a problem since!

Thanks for the replies! Mckenzie has just started on a medication called Losec twice a day. Today she had a great day... But I still think she may have a dairy intolerance causing excessive wind, cramping, pain etc. Karene, what have you noticed with Tucker?

My 13 month old had the same - diagnosed at 6 weeks ... the best way for us was Zantac (tried other stuff but that one was the only thing that worked) and he was also allergic to dairy and corn syrup. It does get better but takes time. He's now outgrown most of his problems and we were able to ditch Zantac at about 11 months but recently he's been waking up at night even more than ever before (used to be every 2 hours now it's more like every 30 minutes past 1am) so I am considering asking his pedi about trying Zantac again since it's possible he's having silent reflux again from all the new solid foods he's been eating ... but at least we're now food allergy free!

the only way to deal with silent reflux caused by an intolerance is elimination. all the meds under the sun will not make it better but may help. my DD and DS have reflux induced by CMPA they both had vomiting and then turned to silent reflux. we changed to neocate and it stopped within weeks. DS is 2 and still cannot tolerate milk products. DD is 5 weeks and still has frequent hiccups and small spit ups but nothing compared to before My DS was on neocate lcp for 2 years and is now on soy milk and my dd has been on neocate for 4 weeks and works fantastically

Thanks for your replies! Yes, we have had to put Mckenzie on neocate and thankfully, she is a new baby!! Still having the meds, but it was Neocate that fixed the problems... I'm now a mess with all the hormone changes from sudden weaning, but she is great! :lol:
