I am 24, was put on ppi's b/c I had a mild stitch like gnawing feeling in the middle of the stomach (brought on by stress)..I believe it was made worse by worrying what it was and when I was put on the first PPI (Protonix) for 1 month and half..it gave me worst abdominal pain. Hopped off Protonix 40 mg and was fine for 2 days..then I hit a rebound (along w/ stress) and I was taking nothing so it was horrible (bad stomach pain, refluxing and lpr..which I had never had before). Got on Nexium 40mg..things leveled out after about
4 weeks..which is when I had an endoscopy which found everything was fine.
Then I quit Nexium 40 mg cold turkey after 10 weeks (b/c I was doing fine)..which is where I am now. Except this time I am taking Pro DGL (100mg-3 times daily) and probiotics to help, trying to eliminate worry/stress as much as possible..and hoping the burping and mild stomach pain will end.
I am on day 18 and still have some burning upper abdominal pain (started day 4) and burping. I have my up's and downs throughout the day. Just wondering when I might round the corner based on other people's experiences. I was tracking with Lisams's progress since her expereince was very similar to mine...hopefully she'll show back up soon! I appreciate any insight anyone has to give!
