Ok, so here's the deal:
 
I've had off-and-on heart burn for about a year. Every time I took Protonix, the heartburn stoped almost after the first day.
 
I've stoped taking Protonix for few weeks and had no acid burning symptoms. I eneded up in the ER with chest pains. They told me it was Esophagial Spasms and put me on Aciphex.
 
I've been taking Aciphex for 4 weeks - no more spasms and no acid.
 
However, I feel like I constantly have food stuck in my throat and in my esophagus.
 
I'm thinking it could be that I do not have enough acid now and my food is not being digested properly.
 
Can PPI's cause' indigestion and low acid levels???
 
Please help, any input would be apreciated.
 
Thanks,
-Alex
