Have been reading your posts for a couple of weeks now and learning so much about treating my gerd. Was diagnosed about 5 years ago and responded well to nexium at the start but has gradually gotten worse and am not able to eat so many foods now. I seem to have sensitivities to different foods on and off, doesn't seem to make sense. Was told to double the nexium which I have done on and off over the last couple of years, I feel sick when I take a double dose and sick when I don't! I have heart thumps which has all been checked out and been told that there is nothing wrong there. I have terrible pain at night and am awake most nights for 3 or 4 hours. I seem to get spasms in my oesphogus which are quite painful. I too developed anxiety on nexium but whilst it comes back in times of stress is ok otherwise. I am going to a new specialist in April. I would love to stop taking the nexium as I am starting to feel sick taking it and I don't feel it works as well anymore. I feel sick in the stomach most of the time now.
Anyway thank you all for your good advice and reassurance, if anyone has any advice I would love to hear it.
