I read your story on the FMS board. There are so many side effects with the PPI's it isn't funny. I've had terrible edema especially in my hands and feet/legs that is very painful. I have had constipation and blurred vision with Nexium.
I was thinking about calling the doctor to try Protonix, but I have heard some things about hair loss and withdrawal symptoms and I just don't know what to do.
I think the only way you are going to know if the Aciphex is causing the side effects would be to stop taking it for a bit with the Aleve and see if you don't feel better.
I used to be just on Pepcid AC 20 mg. 2 x a day and was okay, but since January is when I got the chest pains.
I hope you will feel better soon. I hope you can continue to get the stronger pain meds.
