I am currently taking 20 mg of Aciphex 2x a day, (day 4 of doing this).  Today I have this tightness in my neck/throat area and behind my breastbone.  When I burp, it realives the feeling, but it immediately builds up again.  Have you ever had this?  What do you do to make it go away?
Any advise/comments would be appreciated.

Hi there, I have Gerd and have been suffering for the last five years.  Mine started after taking medication for something else and I began to develop breathing problems.  After that the tightness in my throat started.  Then anxiety attacks at night. Couldn't keep anything in my stomach.  Tried lots of meds with nothing helping.  I have symptoms of constant sore throat, shortness of breath, tightness in my throat and heavy feeling on my chest.  I can't take it anymore.  I just started taking nexium 40mgs.  It's supposed to be good if you have irritation for the GERD.  My symptoms seem to be more LPR.  I was also given clonazepam 0.5 mgs. 3 times a day which sometimes helps with the irritation.  It is a benzodiazepam which can be an addictive drug but I've had no problems with that.  It only sometimes helps though and then it is back.  Just to let you know many people have these symptoms.  Have you had an endoscope???  Let me know how your doing.
