Hi new to the forum and look forward to participating.
I was diagnosed with Gerds and a Hiatal hernia a few years back. Went to gastrologist and tried a number of PPIs after a 2 to 3 months the heartburn subsided after landing on 40mg daily of Nexium. about 6 months ago I quit taking it and everything was fine for a while.
A couple months ago I started having some chest pains here and there and shrugged it off to my hernia. I was recently on vacation coming off a high stress project and overate and overdrank (beer is my Achilles) and the daily heartburn back with vengeance, hoarse throat, whole 9 yards.
I had a few months supply of nexium left that I have been taking for a couple weeks - some improvement but very little. Seems like based on my experience last time it takes awhile for it to begin working. Seems like a lot people I talk to it begins working pretty quickly.
Just curious if others have seen this delay in response.
Appreciate any feedback. thanks
