Hello I am here again with a couple of questions and to see if anyone else has the same symptoms.
When I lay down at night on my sides I get pain in the Sternum area and when I turn over in bed I feel sickness coming up, I am burping more often as well.
My doctor has put me on Lansoprazole (have been on these for 6 weeks)
This whole thing has given me very high levels of anxiety and I feel tense all day when I am at work.
Thanks for reading this.

Acid reflux can cause heartburn and/or a lot of other symptoms. It sounds like your doctor feels that is what you have. There are other meds similar to Lansoprazole, so it doesn't help you, there are other choices. Healing does take time as well. Are you feeling a little better? If not, it might be time to ask if something else might work better for you.

Thanks for the reply Sunbeam.
 
I told my doctor there is no change since I started the PPI but she just said she thinks it may be Gastritis or a Hiatus Hernia not much help to me.
 
But this has all made me so anxious I feel tensed up all the time with the worry.
 
Not sure if I should try Gaviscon as well?

Pepto bismol coats the stomach, and can be helpful with gastritis.
