Avatar n tn Nexium caused bad swallowing pain, and Prevacid hasn't seemed very effective. I'm hoping the Aciphex will work better for me. I have heard from many that it all depends on the individual. Some swear BY Prevacid and swear AT the others, some swear BY Aciphex and swear AT all the others, etc... Be patient because things will be different for a while after such a maybe don't assume it's the meds just yet... Good luck and God bless!
Avatar n tn My husband is taking Aciphex for reflux, yet he continues to have stomach pain, not hearburn. He has recently had an upper GI and nothing was found. Nothing he takes orally helps the pain. What should he do if the specialist can't find his problem.
Avatar n tn I had an upper GI barium study several years ago that didn't find GERD but, by my symptoms, I was told I have it anyway. I have heartburn but the worst is that I sometimes have severe pain on swallowing ( as if pain starts when food hits the stomach, usually hard food like meat, chips). It actually feels as if something is stuck down in my stomach and if I keep eating somehow whatever is stuck opens up -- like a valve? I know this sounds crazy but that's what it feels like.
Avatar f tn Nausea, constipation burning in stomach, burping, gas pain around belly button and gurgling in stomach and chest, food stuck in throat pain ing abdomen(right side and left side_ I am really disgusted and gaining weight also. I have gerd, hashimoto's disease, ibs and hiatal hernia. The nausea and burning in stomach started three days ago and seem to be here to stay. I take aciphex 20mg. once a day. Does anyone else have this type of issue and what do you do?
Avatar n tn My doctor prescribed Belladonna Alkaloids tablets, which seemed to relieve the lower abdominal cramps, however the pain migrated to the stomach area. This pain was coming and going and was more of a burning type. When the pain peaked, I felt somewhat nauseous. This pain originated in the center of the upper abdomen (which was tender). Somestimes, it migrated up to where the esophagus ends. I did not have diarrhea, or a fever. I ate normally!

Avatar n tn I have always had some stomach area pain throughout my life, but since October '08, I have had few days free of this pain. I go to bed feeling okay and during the night I wak with pain. The pain sometimes get better during the day but I often feel naused during the day. It is in the center and goes to the right. I have had gall bladder ultra sound and was told it was all right. For the last two weeks I have been given AcipHex (20mg) and still have symptoms.
Avatar m tn So - when I was in my early forties, I began to have constant stomach pain as soon as I ate, with no diarrhea. Just stomach pain constantly. Since my pattern was colon cramps, and after severe cramping for an hour or two I would have diarrhea and the pain would subside. So my internist put me on IBS meds, didn't help, and he sent me to G.I. doctor. He put me on more meds. didn't help.
Avatar n tn My pain starts about 2 hours after breakfast and lasts for about 3-5 hours. I feel like I spend half of my day in pain. I was put on Aciphex which seemed to help for about a month, but then out of the blue I have had the pain now for 4 days straight! I also have the chills and sweating My doctor said to take my Aciphex at night instead, but it doesn't matter. I was checked for gall bladder issues, peptic ulcers, nothing. I am very upset.
Avatar f tn I am a fifteen year old female and I've had excrutiating pain in my upper stomach since about October (or so) or 2008. The pain is just below my breast bone, in my upper stomach. Sometimes the pain also hits me in the center of my chest. Lately, it's been getting worse. More on the pain...When I find myself in a stressful situation, the pain spikes. This has happened two or three times in the past two years, and each time it happens I feel as though I'm going to pass out from the pain.
Avatar n tn In the last two months, I've started to have stomach pains (acid right in the middle of my stomach, but not resulting in reflux into my esophagitis) and nausea (but not vomiting). This occurs about an hour or so after eating. These "attacks" last on average for 3 hours, and are accompanied by bloating. Nothing I do helps to lesson the pain/discomfort. I just have to wait it out.
Avatar n tn I recently have had a burning pain directly below my breat bone. It comes and goes and seems to be helped by eating or drinking. The stomach pain sometimes will last for an hour or less, very random. But enough for me to break down and try to find help. As of yesterday I've a total of 4 diarrhea episodes (I dont usually have a problem with diarrhea) I've also had a very stiff neck for the last 2 weeks, that sometimes gives me headaches.
Avatar n tn I have had stomach pain/problems for 8 years now. It comes and goes. At times it gets so bad it hurts all the time and I loose 10 - 20 lb. This time the pain has been from.... June 2006 till now, with about 6, 5 day stretches of relief. I have gone from 126 to 116 in the past 2 months. It does depend what I eat - sometimes. If ate spagetti, coffee, sweets, any raw vegetable, more than a small bite of meat, I would have to go on the brat diet for a week or more before the pain lets up.
Avatar n tn Over this time, I've continued to have the pain, it starts in the upper part of my stomach and continues down through my bowels. I haven't had any regularity with my bowels since this all started. One day I'll be fine, the next it's very painful diarrhea. From the nutritional response testing, they found that I don't digest grains well, and that could be causing the problem. I haven't eaten grains in about six months now, and still have the pain.
Avatar n tn Approximately 3 years ago after vomiting I begun having severe bile reflux every night until I had a cholectectomy. Afterwards, I have continually been treated with 80 mg of Aciphex daily. The Aciphex is working because without it the burning in my chest and mouth is intolerable. However, I still have reflux coming into my mouth. I can taste something sour or chemical like. My nerves in my gums and teeth are inflamed,sensitive and tender. It also has been destroying my dental work.
Avatar n tn its very hard to describe but it is just a general discomfort that does not go away its in the upper part of my stomach, its never a sharp pain or triggered in one specific spot but it feels as though its my whole stomach.
Avatar f tn Even water comes back up when I swallow. I'm also getting burning pain in my upper stomach area. I'm also having lots and lots of stomach gas. My question is -- can PPI's lose their efficacy after awhile? I've tried Prevacid and it didn't work. If they do lose their efficacy, what's the next treatment? Thanks for your time.
Avatar n tn About six weeks ago I was diagnosed with h-pylori and was treated with a 14 day prev pac. This seemed to help my symptoms of nausea and stomach discomfort, but I continue to have pain. This pain has gotten progressively worse, Now the pain is very intense in the abdomen area(especially the right side, with lots of tenderness) and seems to go into my lower back,thighs and sometimes down my legs to the calf area.
Avatar m tn For about the last week I've been experiencing stomach burning. The first day it came on I actually vomitted as it felt like there was so much acid in my stomach - or I assume it's acid. The burning is quite consistent, and I also have a bit of bloating and slight gas feel in it too as I will get subtle type of gas pains. I went to my regular Dr. a few days ago and he put me on Aciphex.
Avatar n tn Usually after eating or needing to eat (within 60 minutes), I will, upon a shallow breath (exhale), experience a sensation in my stomach as if a dip in a rollercoaster or a car going over a bump in the road. After this sensation I sometimes get spasms in the left abdominal area. The spasms are rapid and I can see a "pulse" in the area and feel as though my heart is beating in that location.
Avatar f tn This is not uncommon immediately after cholecystectomy and the cycle can usually be broken by giving sucralfate to coat the stomach and let i t heal. The stabbing pain comes from spasm of the pylorus. Generally, after a month of treatment the meds can be stopped. Was your gallbladder removed due to stone disease or dyskinesia? This is more common when the indication was a dysfunctional gallbladder.
Avatar f tn who recommended I have a gastroscopy where a scope is put down to stomach and found 2 polyps in my stomach. Now that they are removed Im much better....Dr. has me staying off anti-inflammatory alcohol...and I take omeprazole every morning. I think omeprazole is generic for prilosec (better price) I stay away all spicy foods and am feeling much better now. Just wanted to share my story.
Avatar n tn Has your doctor performed any tests, like an endoscopy and colonoscopy? You may have a gastric ulcer, and this pain is not normal. You're vomiting bile, stomach acid, but this can cause other problems for you, it can erode your esophagus, and eat away at the enamel on your teeth. Obviously your doctor has no clue, I suggest a new GI for starters. Take care....
Avatar n tn I am a 16 year old female. Back in June 2010, I started getting severe stomach pain, along with nausea that just wouldn't go away. After a few weeks of this, I went to see my pediatrician, who sent me to see a GI specialist. 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.
Avatar n tn It is a burning, cramping pain in the area around the esophagial sphincter (in the upper area of my stomach), this often happens when I eat. Sometimes the pain literally takes my breath away or wakes me up at night. I also suffer from involuntary spit up. Out of nowhere contents of my stomach will come up and I generally spit it out. Its not quite the same as vomiting. There is no gagging. I have had 2 upper GI's and 2 endoscopies, a Monometry test and a PH test.
Avatar n tn A thought on your stomach pain...I had similar tests for stomach pain and suffered acid for a long time...all tests came back negative... Turned out a soy allergy was causing my symptoms...If your tests are negative like mine, give it a thought...
Avatar n tn what happens is around 330 to 400 in the morning i awake with stomach pain. For the most part is all of my stomach and it is very tight. Some times i will have a sharp pain in my lower right hand towards my back. When I first started getting this it wasn't every night, but now is continuously every night and lately i have been taking ibprofren or aleve to be able to go back to sleep. When i do sleep it isn't as painful if I am curled up in a ball. This pain will last untill i get up.
