Thinking that it was acid reflux, the GI prescribed Nexium (40 mg twice a day) because of my family history with
acid reflux and GERD (gastroesophagael reflux disease). She scheduled an appointment for
me to go back to check on things for
6 weeks later. When I went back, the medication didn't do a single thing. I got nausea
and stomach pains whenever I ate. The pains were constant, but the nausea
comes and goes.
