I am sooo stinkin' frustrated! This has been going on since MAY---I had gall bladder ultra-sound AND hid-a-scan done--supposedly, "normal" (whatever that means).......My MD thought I gave myself an ulcer worrying about all of this back/chest pain (that was in August)----
I really didn't have heart burn problems until (I think) they put me on the meds for it. I started getting "hot breath" on 20 mg of Prilosec, then 20 mg of Aciphex, now, 40 mg of Protonix!
BUT---the past few days---I have started getting major heartburn, EVEN IF I EAT THE BLANDEST FOODS---rice, a piece of bread, cheese, cracker. I am NOT eating all they say: NO caffeine, no acidic fruit/veggies, spicy stuff, nothing...... and I still get this tight/hot/painful feeling in my sternum, back and right side! It hurts to swallow---like tight! I also get headaches after I eat!
I don't get to see the GI specialist until the 30th (only taking me two months to see the guy as a "new patient"----
) I am so frustrated and down.. help!
