i felt like i was having a heart attack...my chest was hurting...this woke me up in the middle of the nite..this continued for three nites in a row...with the feeling of heart burn, stomach gurgling, gas,...after not sleeping for three days i went to the dr on friday...he gave me a script of zantac 300mg...also, reglan 10mg...along with that i eat pepto and drink mylanta...friday nite hardly any symptoms, saturday nite no symptoms, sunday stomach bloated all day, along with the gurgling of an upset stomach, along with heartburn...needless to say, i didnt sleep much sunday nite...today(monday) the same situation...although it is much worse when i lay down at nite....
my question is, how long is this going to last, before i start getting better?.....is there something else i should get checked out....he did a bacteria test for h pyloria that was negative...are the meds im taking the right ones????.....any advice would be appreciated.....

Am glad you saw the doctor. Sounds like a case of GERD or something similar to me. You might check out our thread on minimizing GERD symptoms. I will try to bump it for you.

There is some hope. Last week I was suffering terribly, but I have had two perfect stomach days the last two days. What a relief!

When was the last meal you had before you had all these problems?
The type of food you eat matters too.

When i have some tomato juice, i feel bloated and have pain throughout the night.
Give Activa yogurt a try, It may help
