I have been taking Protonix 40mg once a day.

It has been helping alot with my heartburn.

but what I noticed is that when I go to sleep and wake up in the morning, I get a sore throat which seems to go away after I drink water.

My mom says it's just your throat being dry, but I don't know.

I wasn't diagnosed with Acid Reflux by my G.I. doctor but I was when I was taken to the E.R. about 3 months ago.

when I had my endoscopy about a month and a half ago, the G.I. said I had mild chronic gastritis and it most likely go away within 3-4 months.

well, it's been 3 months and pretty much the symptoms are almost gone except throbbing in my stomach whenever I eat something or when I'm stressed and the sore throat that goes away when I drink water.

I sleep with my bed raised 4 inches and with 3 pillows.

I also heard gastritis can cause streaks of blood on the toilet paper, i had that for a few days but it's pretty much gone away.

but I'm gonna go see my G.I. doctor in like 3 weeks, he said that if I was still constipated which I was like a month ago for 5 days straight, that he was gonna do a colonoscopy on me to see if I have something wrong.

but I haven't been constipated at all because he put me on a fiber diet.

all this started after I ate some fast food, I was fine for a few hours then it felt like something dropped in my stomach then I got wicked bad heartburn..

anyone wanna give this one a shot?
