I did. Back in 1998 I was first dx with GERD and used Prevacid for 1 year. In 1999 the Prevacid was stopped and I had no problems with GERD until 2002 when it came roaring back under stressful times. I was again put on Prevacid for a year and again it went away until 2004. In 2004 I went to the hospital with Heart attack symptoms only to have a diagnosis of Angina due to stress and Acid Reflux. Two trips to the hospital and an Endo later showed that I have chronic gastritis (possibly from perenial allergies), hiatal hernia and GERD. The gastritis and GERD are worse during periods of high stress and peak periods of allergy season. Since the past 2 1/2 years have been extremely stressful (lost one parent due to terminal cancer and lost the other parent unexpectedly this year) my GERD has been much worse. I have been put on 40mg Protonix and 300 mg Zantac. Right now, following an insulin resistant carb balancing diet appears to be helping.
