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.
