I take 20mg Prilosec daily. I woke up one morning 2 years ago with terrible pain right below my breastbone. Pain was a 10. Spent 5 hrs in ER. They sent me home still in pain. I was really depressed feeling the same way and going home. I got home and took a 20mg Prilosec. First time I had taken one. 3 hours later pain stopped.
I try once in a while to come off this and I'll have another attack. I tried to come off this the last 2 days. Woke up this morning 3:00 AM with an attack, took the pill and now 8 hrs later I'm feeling better. I've had about 20 attacks. Usually 2-8 hrs and I'm fine. I never have an attack if I take the pill daily. My question is, Does anyone have this? One DR told me this is a spasm. I was almost ready to take a 2nd Prilosec. I'm feeling better right now. It took 8 hrs...Thank you!!!
