I've been off my prilosec for a couple of days.  The reason I quit is I have been having pain and I thought maybe it was a small intestinal bloom?  Besides reflux can another "quitter" tell me what to expect.   Thanks

I didn't have any problems when I quit. However, I've read that many people who think they have acid reflux actually have the opposite, lack of stomach acid. Maybe it would help you to take some digestive enzymes when you eat?

Thanks spooky.  I am using a few rolaid type things to keep me comfortable.  I had pretty bad reflux for a lot of years.  Would a lack of acid cause those horrible symptoms that make you feel like you're gonna die?
So far no change in my pain level.  I go to see the GI doc on Friday.  I hope he won't harass me for stopping this med.  I have been fooling with all my meds and even cut way down on my blue dye and now I have a flare.

I am glad you are headed to the doctor. It could be something else -- gall bladder, ulcer, pancreas, or ?. Not trying to scare you, but you should get it checked out. They can often tell if it is any of these through blood tests. Let us know what you find out!

Here's an article that talks about how low stomach acid can be confused with acid reflux:

Google low stomach acid, and you'll find a bunch of other info too.

Thanks again to both of you. Bad day today. It is that feeling of gas way up in the intestine. I still think it is a possible bloom but I am not sure. The Pain really made me feel tired, wiped and stressed. Asked my supervisor for help with some of my mail so I could go home early. The usual "i don't have nay help available". I should have called in sick.

When I went off of the acid reflux meds, I eventually got a pressure in the back of my throat, like something was stuck there.  GI said it was acid reflux and I thought he was crazy.  I went back on the meds and the pressure went away.

Crohn's Disease, Acid Reflux/Gastritis, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, Endometriosis, Arthritis, Depression/Anxiety.  Too many meds to list them all.  =)
