And yet, my stomach is burning still like crazy!  The heartburn?  Horrible!!!!!!!!!  I guess thats part of a rebound effect huh?  I am taking zantac when it gets really bad.
 
i guess my system just needs to adjust?  Yikes!

I'm on Day 1...we are in the same boat...I don't have much heartburn, simply a sour taste in my mouth.

I know you probably already know this but they say chewing gum is a great way to squelch heartburn, have you given that a try?

The first week was bad for me. It was tempting to just go back on the pills. I got through my second week and I feel like the old me. I hope you both feel better soon.

I didn't get much heartburn, but my stomach hurt. Sometimes it ached, other times I felt so empty and hungry, but food didn't help. It was a terrible feeling. I watched my carbs, took papaya enzymes after eating and a probiotic twice a day (I have IBS-D too).

I tried not to take too many antacids because I read about rebound from those and it scared me. 

I hope you get some relief, Nancy :(

Thanks Nicki!  I went and bought a bed wedge yesterday.  That did help some last night!  However, I woke up this morning with the burning taste in my mouth again-yuck.

 

I took some DGL licorice root again.  Right now I am ok, but I also haven't had breakfast yet.  See, if I just quit eating, Ill be fine tongue -totally kidding of course.
