I've recently started taking Zegerid and it seems to be making my kidneys hurt. The pain is in my lower chest, but in my back... where my kidneys are. It comes and goes. Does anyone else have this?
Also, I have shortness of breath. I've had a chest x-ray and full pulmonary test done and they found nothing wrong. I can't get a satisfying breath without yawning, or gulping in air. My normal breaths don't feel satisfying.
Oh, and they took an ultrasound of my heart for other reasons. So the chest pain (that I used to get really bad WITHOUT Zegerid) isn't from my heart. I have to make a note here that Zegerid has really really helped my GERD. I don't get terrible chest pain and burping like before.
What other tests should I ask my doctor to do, for my lungs or my kidneys? My doc seems to think this is all due to the fact that I have a little anxiety. But I know it's not that, because I don't feel anxious on an everyday basis. Only when flying or stressed.
Any advice?

You might be having esophagal spasms. They are either from the medicine or your GERD.

What kind of GERD testing have you had done? Barium swallow, Manometry, EGD, stomach emptying?

sleep apnea, hypothyroidism, GERD, glaucoma, OA in lower back, environmental, food, and drug allergiesasthma, high cholesterol, pre-diabetic
Medications:Nexium 1X a day, K-Dur, Lasix 2x a day, Zyrtec, Vytorin, Lumigan, Advair, Albuterol, synthoid
12-22-09   270 degree wrap - no more GERD!
