About 6 weeks ago, I had this "10 days of hell" I had gotten Food Poisoning,then Stomach Virus. After those surpassed, I couldn't even fall asleep, I was getting horrible Nausea and chills.
Went to the doctor and he prescribed me Protanix (pantaprazole) for only 30 days. I never experienced heartburn before, but I agreed with the prescription.
I felt great after about the 3rd day of Protanix, I was going to stop but I remembered my doctor telling me "Even though you'll feel well, you must finish the 30 days". - So I did.
After my prescription was over, I thought nothing about getting acid reflux again - until I fell asleep a night after and woke up feeling nauseous again.
So I thought " Let me buy some Prilosec (omeprazole)". After taking the 14 day course of Prilosec and feeling OK I feel the heartburn coming back.
Keep in mind, I am avg weight and very athletic I just don't understand! It's absolutely horrible that I'm going on vacation soon and I have to worry about acid reflux .
It's extremely depressing for me to live with this on the daily basis especially at only 16. The worst part is that it only happens night time, which means I can't even get a restful nights sleep for school the next day.
I'm going to the doctor this week but I just don't know what the doctor can do other than simply prescribe me more PPI.
Please is there ANY hope that it will go away (. I hope it'll just be a temporary "acid rebound".
