The doc put me on aciphex which I tried taking in the also I was taking a low dose of birth control along with ativan and celexa. I was getting cold chills and having trouble breathing. So I stopped mostly everything but the ativan. " All started at once but different times through out the day". Weening myself off. I tried taking the aciphex before bed last I woke up a few times through the night but had no trouble getting back to sleep. This morning my heart is pounding and I feel funny. I took a half of a half of ativan and I still feel weird. I have ibs, gastritIis and esophagitis now for 4 months. I am so scared. When I take medicine it burns and I swear I can taste it in my mouth. I burp a lot and have a lot of bowel gas. Doctor does not think its excessive acid but my ibs making me sensitive to everything. I have never been so scared in my life I have a family and 2 little kids at home and I am constantly in pain and do not feel well at all. I do not get heart burn much I burp a lot and have indegestion. I only seem to get heartburn now when I'm anxious or nervous. Help please...I need some advice.n I live off of a bland diet, I do not drink or smoke. I always say if I could get the pain to go away I would be fine. I get scared and anxious when I start hurting badly. Will the celexa or ativan make my stomach worse? I am at my wits end I feel like I am never going to heal....scared and confused ....please help.

I am so afraid of making my stomach worse or my esophagus. "Which has some mucosal lining missing but no barretts. Do I take the celexa? Will it make my stomach worse? I hate feeling this way. I feel like I worry about if I ate something wrong, if it will set me back. It just so frustrating. They tell me there are more serotin receptors in your stomach than in your brain. I am scared it will make my stomach worse. I know its effecting my daily life. I feel like I can't lead a normal life anymore. My stomach and esophagus burn constantly. They feel like they r in a constant knot. I know it could be worse but I feel like I am never going to heal.

I am so sorry you are having such a hard time.  Please call your Dr's office and a least talk with the triage nurse.
It feels to me like you are having a bit of health anxiety but I am not a physician so please do call.  If it was me, I would be calling.
