Grove- I hate to tell you this but the symtpoms are horrid now. I have some kind of gastrointestinal issue and my stomach burns 24/7. I can't eat anything spicy or red sauce or anything.
I saw this post and I was like, WHEN did I post this? Did I sleep walk? LOL Then I saw the date.
I went to the doc several times and stress is the major issue, and i just had major chest pain just a little bit ago under my ribs on the right side. The doc couldn't tell me much and sent me to get an abdominal scan, which came back normal. I was going to go to a gastroenthamologist but haven't yet.
Sometimes I get indigestion so bad and my stomach just burns that I can only drink water and can't eat anything.
I would recommend a month long dose of the generic for Prilosec. I think it's called Omeziprole or something. It's almost half the price of Prilosec. It doesn't work instantly, it takes a few days, but it does work.
That and going on a bland diet; avoiding spicy and fatty foods and pizza/italian food, and alcohol. Alcohol can cause it as well.
I really should take my own advice. I did for a while and was dropping weight and the symptoms started to go away after I lost about
10 pounds. Being overweight is another reason why I have this issue. Then I went back on the bad diet and gained the weight back. ARGH
