It is what I would call chest pain. You could call it heartburn, I guess, but it is so bad for me that I have to take my FMS pain meds to stop the pain.
I'm on Nexium since 4/14, but will be going on Protonix as my insurance won't cover Nexium anymore as of 9/1/06. I was just getting used to the side effects now I have to go to another med.
Prior to that I would get a dry cough at night for years and was told it was allergies.
