See a GI doc : This is a very specific question, and if you were prescribed Omeprazole for the esophagitis, the prescribing physician should have told you when to retest. In general, it takes several weeks of good anti-acid medication therapy to heal the inflammation, but ask your GI doctor for a more accurate response. I would wait at least 2-3 months

How did I know I have allergy to wheat or gluten?

Food challenge: There are many tests that can be done to help determine if you are at risk for an allergy to wheat or gluten, but ultimately, a food challenge is the only definitive test. This should not be done on your own, but with the guidance of physican or allergist.

Did the polio vaccine get rid of polio?

Mostly: Not completely, as there are still pockets of polio infections on earth. However, the incidence of polio is essentially close to zero thanks to the effectiveness of the vaccine. There is no other reason for that improvement.

Did anyone ever get blurry eyes or double vision from a slight concussion?

Yes: A concussion is similar to a bruise of the brain, and it can cause it to temporarily lose the ability to keep both eyes working together. If the double vision is constant, you should be evaluated by an eye doctor or general doctor.

Is physical therapy necessary for body areas where bones were fractured but did not heal?

Probably: Although, I am not sure what your problem is, i believe you need to have a definite plan worked out to resolve your problem. Physical therapy will probably be an essential part of this plan, however, the timing of it may differ depending on other factors. Talk to the physician who is treating you and ask him if physical therapy at this stage is right for you.

See below: Assuming you did not have any oral or dental trauma, he is probably testing your cranial nerves which could be affected by head injury.
