This is a repost. I posted this about 2 weeks ago. Denise and Bill responded. Thank you. Just wanting to see if many people have this.....I was due to take my pill at 7. Took it at 5 because I could tell a possible attack was starting. It is being held back, but I can tell it hasn't calmed down yet. Just uncomfortable.
Pain maybe 1 or 2. This is how it starts. But pill is working. I'm hoping soon it kicks in totally.
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!!!
I have tried all the antacids, no help. As serious as this is, the pain is big time 10, A couple of times I massaged my solarplex area and pain stopped in 1 mnute. Hard to believe. 8 hours of suffering this morning. The massage must have relaxed the spasm. Also my abdomen swells out, bloated when this attack happens. And when taking a deep breath, my whole abdomen feels sore when this is going on. As soon as the Prilosec kicks in, I'm good to go.....
