very sorry to hear about your condition/ But your symptoms seem more consistent with IBS than stomach disorder. I hade been battling with gastritis for 1 year now. The doctors did not recognise i had gastritis until january so for 7 months they put me on ppi and they have made my life Hell and nothing short of it. The PPI which were meant to help me did complete opposite. Not only did they reek havoc with the nerves in my stomach which caused me problems with standing up and sitting down, but they also cases me damage. They also seem to make my stomach feel like it had expanded and touched my rib cage, it was hell. They also amplified any stomach pain i had. The doctors discarded all this and i believed them jumping from ppi to ppi and got no better. I suffers from blurred vision, sever cramping, stomach ache and these i was able to tolerate and long term they caused pain to my gallbladder. Anyhow, did endoscopy after 3 months and it showed no inflammation, tried to cut my nightie dose in a tapering dose and by 5am i was in hell. What doctors though was hypersensitivity and fried nerves and giving me wrong meds foe it and BAD BAD DIET ADVICE has now turned out to ne gastritis from hypersecrerion. The medication would flare up my gastritis every time i tried to come off it, and so i went back on nexium for another 3 months and believing their visceral hypersensitivity nonsense, but this time round i felt 100x worser than before the ppi. I pushed for another endoscopy and it confirmed what i had gastritis but now 12 weeks later my gallbladder was killing me, i had to get off nexium because again the doctors wanted to remove it and said its unlikely to be caused by the ppi. That's when i decided enough is enough, no more ppi for me, i stopped the nexium cold turkey 6 days ago and it has been hell for me stomach, my gastritis has flared up bad but my mind feel so much better , no more stupidity and 6 days on i sit and stand and my gallbladder pain had died down by 70% and getting better day by day.
to sum up, ppi are godsend for some and truly evil for others. If i believed the doctors i would of done serious damage ro myself. To hell with stupid doctors and their ppi for every problem gastrointestinal.
i am now trying to heal my gastritis naturally, its harder nut ill get their in the end. I am taking sucralfate and gaviscon, helping a little but not much. Have sever burning in the stomach. Coming of nexium cold turkey flared it up again.
itsy few other ppi and if they don't work, just listen to your body and not doctors always, your body will tell you and guide you.
