I have been on nexium for about 8 years. Ever since my gallbladder was removed in 2003. I don't really get much heartburn but I still had chest pain after gb removal so I had ph test done and dr said I Gerd even though I don't get heartburn all the time. I have had the diarrhea mostly since going off nexium. I do have occasional diarrhea anyway but mostly after drinking coffee or eating food that aggravates my stomach.
This is different kind of diarrhea. It is with everything I eat and has only started since going off nexium. I did research nexium and that seems to be a side effect of going off it but I just wonder how long it will last.
I am just miserable. Have really been watching what I eat and have even been trying to cut gluten out just to see if it will help but haven't noticed much diff. I did make big mistake today though and ate just 2 pieces of bacon and have had chest pain, heartburn, gas and even worse diarrhea all day. I should have known better. Won't do that again.
I would like to know if anyone has taken immodium for extended period of time. I have been taking at least 2 a day for a week now. It helps some but I still have what I guess you would call break through diarrhea. I tried pepto for the first few days but it didn't help so switched to immodium.
