Many of the patients I’ve seen with dumping syndrome do much better after starting on Zantac. Have you tried that yet?
I’ve tried Zantac, 75 mg, twice per day. I’ve been taking it for 2 days now, and have experienced a huge improvement in everything, like sinus congestion and post-nasal drip, and mental confusion.
Now… it seems like gluten-containing foods, and rice (which is perhaps a bit weird), trigger the strong symptoms that I have (and the triggers seem to be further enhanced if I also take a stimulant, like Ritalin or Modafinil), and I have been avoiding these foods for the last three days, so that improvement is partially due to that. However, the improvement was quite sudden, after taking Zantac, which is uncommon, so that I do think Zantac is doing something very good.
All of this makes me think if I actually have a mast cell problem, and not late dumping syndrome. I’ll have to experiment and read more. Oh, one more thing: another symptom that I get during the “episodes” are a few nasty aphthous stomatitis (maybe it’s relevant).
In any case, thanks so much!
