Glad you decided to start your own thread! I'm guessing you know that there are other areas of the forum that you also might find relevant (GERD, Depression), but you're also very welcome here. The quick jump menu at the top of the page makes it easy to post to different conditions, and you can post to as many as are relevant for you. But we only see what you post to chronic pain on this thread. You can cut and paste other posts, especially if you've made a longer introduction or post and don't want to repeat the typing!
p.s. I recently started on prilosec, and have my endoscopy scheduled for this Monday. Not looking forward to it, especially since my back pain has really flared and I'm supposed to get a colonoscopy, too. Yuck!
And many of us with chronic pain also deal with depression, myself included.
