Avatar f tn I have had Acid Reflux for the last couple years. I have recently been experencing more heartburn than ever. I'm in Italy and it seems like nobody knows whats going on. I've takin Prilosec, Muslce relaxers etc.. I have tingling in my hands and feet. I don't know what else to do. I really think I should go back to the ER. My EKG came out normal. I'm getting very upset because it seems like people are just telling me its anxiety/stress. Right now I feel blessed not stressed.
Avatar f tn Please help me get some relief from heartburn. I have tried all the over the counter meds and nothing seems to work. I do not feel like I am going to vomit, or feel the burning in my throat like acid reflux, I only have severe heartburn now and then. At least 1/2 of the week. I am very active, have a pretty stressfull job, I work out at the club 4 days a week and run 3 miles at least 4 days a week. I stay away from fattie and fried foods, I eat lots of chicken and fish no red meat at all.
9584608 tn?1413678892 Does anybody know if you can take any heartburn medication, besides tums, while pregnant. I think what I'm thinking of is called prilosec or something.
Avatar f tn I'm 19 weeks and 5 days pregnant, and I'm having some Hella bad migraines. I also have terrible sinuses, heartburn and I've been physically sick alot, with a fever and what not. I'm allergic to acetmenaphin(tylenol) which is supposedly the only thing I can take while pregnant. My doctor refuses to write me prescriptions for anything else and tells me to deal with it and there's nothing else like aspirin that I can take. She's very rude.
Avatar m tn Famotidine has been effective in preventing recurrence of ulcers when given in low doses for prolonged periods of time. Famotidine also is used for treating heartburn and in healing ulceration and inflammation of the esophagus (esophagitis) resulting from acid (gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD). High doses are used for treating conditions in which there are marked increases in acid secretion such as Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.

Avatar f tn I suffered with heartburn almost all my pregnancy...I'm so upset I didn't tell my Dr sooner because I thought he would tell me tums or zantac..but he prescribed a medication named pantoprazole sod 40 mg. Girl every since I started it I have had no heartburn at all, not even that gassy bloated feeling I also had...so talk to your Dr about the medication and see what he says. Best wishes.
Avatar f tn What can I take for this heartburn?
Avatar n tn I have been having heartburn for a long time. I finally went to the doctor 2 weeks ago and he gave me previcid. It's not working. Could this be something more or do I just need another medication?
Avatar f tn For the last couple of days, anything I eat, gives me heartburn! I did have heartburn once in a while! Now I'm concerned that I get it every time I eat! Must something be wrong???
3166744 tn?1357930247 You can take tums but if you want long lasting relief zantac really helps
Avatar m tn So, today, I went from going down with the medication, to going up. Since this tracker is for pain, I have to put down really just the pain, the medication can be in the other tracker. So, I understand this can all be in my mind, I guess if it's that powerful, but the more I am going down in medication, the worse my pain is getting. I took 3 extra pills today because I am in more pain now than I was yesterday or the day before that.
Avatar n tn Since i pregnant, i got really bad heartburn. Did anyone here got same issue with me? What should i take to reduce pain?
Avatar n tn t have any symptoms. Should I be taking acid reducing medication as a matter of routine or just on an as needed basis for occasional mild heartburn (once or twice a year)? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/883980'>Barrett's Epithelium</a>.
1295419 tn?1276822872 Hi! I was diagnosed with GERD about a month ago as evidenced by an Upper GI. I have never had any symptoms of GERD, such as hearburn, etc. My doctor said there is no need to put me on medication because there are no symptoms to treat for me and prolonged use of PPI's may have consequences. She said just to take 2 Tums before bed time since the acid can erode my esophagus and rises more when you are lying down. I am nervous that it is going to do damage?
11129330 tn?1430878608 t help tell your dr and dr will perscribe you with something better. For me no medication iver the counter worked so i got a prescription for a medicine that does miracles!
Avatar n tn s only as a last resort. Here is some general information about beta-blockers. As far as specific medication advice we recommend following the advice of your physician. Beta-blockers are used to treat high blood pressure, angina (chest pain), heart attacks, heart rhythm problems such as atrial fibrillation and more recently heart failure.
Avatar n tn Is it safe to take Prevacid 24 hr. for heartburn if you are on a beta blocker, Atenolol? I am asking for my daughter who is 28 yrs. old.
Avatar n tn Acid produced in the stomach refluxes back into the esophagus and causes inflammation. Inflammation can cause symptoms of heartburn, sore throat, hoarseness, dental problems, abdominal discomfort and burning, chest pain and difficulty with swallowing. Omeperazole (Prilosec or Losec) is a very potent inhibitor of acid production. It is very effective in alleviating heartburn. It may take longer for atypical symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux (such as sore throat) to improve.
Avatar f tn I get heartburn so frequently these days, no matter what I eat, how much, or how I sit. I never had it with my other 2. Being pregnant this time has taken a horrible toll on my body :/. I'm 34 weeks today and so anxious to get this over with.
