I went to the doctors office today for a follow up, from supposedly Gerd symptoms, Do any of you experience, chest pain and tightness and arm pain and lots of burping, and pain in the upper abdomen and i have panic atacks, im scared this has something to do with my heart, also my bp was 143/91, i'm a 33 yr old male 6 ft tall and 140 lbs, Do any of you experience them symptoms with gerd? And also i asked for nexium because my brother said it has helped him a great deal, and have any of you had any side effects with nexium, and would you prefer it over pepcid (famotidine) generic form i am on now, seems like no relief from the pepcid especially for the chest pain, Thanks for your help.

I experience a lot of burping and acid reflux, but no chest or arm pain from GERD when I am not on PPI. Nexium is the best PPI for GERD if it matches your body and does not give you side effects. However, there are side effects from the long term use of PPIs. Nexium is acid blocker and more effective than pepcid.
