Early in the year I was diagnosed with gastritis and duodenitis caused by h pylori had the triple therapy and re then re-tested and is now eradicated
since this i have never felt the same ! i eventually got to see a Gastro doc who advised the reason im still suffering is because my gp put me on Ranatidine and they only work for up too 2 weeks!
i have lost alot of weight due the the infllamation as ive just had no appetite and told i do have excess acid
anyway i was put in Nexuim 40mg once a day and ive started to get my appetite back ,but im still getting a pain inbetween my shoulder blade its just to the left side of my spine slightly under my shoulder blade and it does ease when i burp .... but im petrified it my heart as i still get burning sensations in my chest every now and then.
Im 31 year old female and i have been to A&E on ECG monitors and they are saying my hear is fine maybe stress is causing this but what i would love to know is anyone else experienced this?
do the Nexium stop all the symptoms or help ease them?
also can you eat what you want or do you have to still eat a bland diet?
I go back the gastro doc in a couple of weeks so i will bring this up but for the time being your hel is really appreciated turn

The pain is from an irritated vegus nerve. The burning is probably from the gerd.
Have you raised the head of your bed?
Until your stomach heals you need to avoid acidic foods. Google "gerd Diet" and you'll find a great list of foods.
