I've had burning sensation (GERD symptoms) since having my gallbladder on 10/08, no meds help. Zegerid is the most recent one I've been on and I quit it on 2/12 because of heart palpatations and felt exactly the same after stopping (low level burning in mid-abdomen). I had a second ERCP on 2/25 (for possible blockage - but there was none) and within a few days after that the burning got worse. My dr INSISTS the ERCP had nothing to do with the burning worsening and it's because I quit taking Zegerid that it got worse. I only took for 10 days and stopped two weeks before the ERCP. Could it take 3-4 weeks for it to leave my system? Could dr. be right? Has anyone had burning in stomach/chest - feeling like menthol fluid is moving around after gallbladder removal or ERCP? I just wish I had never had the second ERCP because the burning had subsided to a low-level and now it's as horrible as it was right after the original gallbladder surgery!

I was taking Prevacid and when I stopped after ten days like I was told the symptoms returned I'd say maybe 2 weeks later now I'm taking nexium and it is great! If I stay away from the restricted foods I have no symptoms at all even if I miss a couple days of taking it.
