About two months into the Hep C therapy, my stomach started hurting, when that happened I would get hot flashes, I could feel my heart pounding in my chest, a strong burning and taste coming up from my stomach, and
needles in my face and
arms. I am going for a stomach scope consultation in 6 days. In the meantime I was put on a stronger stomach MED (Pantoprazole 40mg), that still doesn't do much for my stomach or the taste and gas coming up from my stomach.
