I was diagnosed with Acid Reflux about 1 year ago I took Protonix for 1 year after 6 mnths it did nothing for me. Now about 2 months ago my acid reflux is sooo bad I'm vomiting a lot I went to see a doctor they put me on prilosec twice a day and Zantac 1x every day at night its been working but the meds are really expensive and the quantity is small. So now I'm on Nexium feeling ok take on tablet daily but everything I eat I feel a stomachache after eating and have diarrhea after everything I eat. I don't know what else to do???? should I see a dr to have a test done where they check inside my stomach, esophagus etc to see if ther is anything else going on or if my acid reflux os to the extreme. Pleae someone help me out let me know what to do. I have to take meds everyday because I have tried stopping and when i do I start vomiting all over again and have really bad heart burn and everything repeats you know what I mean. Well  Thanks

pr glo -- It sounds like something to discuss with a gastroenterologist. This doesn't sound like 'usual' GERD. It could be something else. Maybe nothing; you might just need to change meds.

I agree with Acid Prone. This sounds like something you need to discuss with your GI.

I hope you find some relief soon!
