Hey all... Just a concern. I am not on the nexium...carafate...more side effects that made me worse. My concern is...my esophagus and stomach burn but I have an itchy scratchy feeling down my throat. My family wants me to take my anti anxiety meds but they make it burn worse until they dissolve. If anyone can relate to the pain, burning, and itchyness esp the itchyness. Please post a reply. Please.
