Halls, I am glad to hear that. My husband wants me to back off of taking my Protonix but I am scared of horrible reflux and don't want to. He thinks I am only taking a half of pill a day. I ate a bigger meal at lunch today than I am used to, a Burger King fish sandwich, and I have felt full in my gut since then. I've belched a few times, but believe it or not, I avoid anything tomato and spicy, including onions, even barbecue sauce and spaghetti sauce, but still on occasion have belching spells and gas. I'm hoping the full feeling I am having now is because I am used to eating less at every meal, and ate more than I am used to. I am not really uncomfortable. Thought after I had eaten that sandwich that the catch feeling in my side was trying to stir up but believe it or not, it didn't. I need to get out a super good belch though and it would relieve alot of that tightness out of my gut I am sure. I am sure the change of environment helped also. Hopefully it will help me if we still get to go to the panhandle of Florida this next weekend coming up. Not sure what Hurricane Dean is going to do.
