I started taking Prilosec in February because I was having awful throat clearing. (I had also had a bad cold just prior) I wasn't sure what it was and got on the internet and realized that I might be acid reflux. So, I started taking Prilosec OTC once per day. Well, my throat clearing eventually did go away however, the prilosec made me start having bad acid reflux....not a burning type feeling but more like food stuck in my throat, esophogus (sp?). Also, the bloating I felt after mealsl was terrible and I felt horrible by the end of the night after dinner.
Well, I stopped taking the Prilosec last Friday and felt great for a couple of days. Then, on Sunday, big time heartburn...I was miserable so I took a Zantac. Today, I'm feeling better but still having funny feelings in my chest.
I was wondering if rebound acid reflux is real and if it is, how long before I can expect to recover from this?
