I've had mild laryngopharyngeal reflux for a number of years and i went to see my GP about it over a year ago. I was prescribed once daily 20mg omeprazole and this seemed to help. I never really had anyother reflux symptoms. In February this year I was called into my GP to discuss my repeat prescription request and I told him that my reflux had improved. He then decided to lower my dose to try and get me off it and prescribed me 10mg daily omeprazole. Unfortunately i had a very stressful time at work just after I started taking the 10mg and I began to experience what I can only describe as volcanic acid eruptions (tied in to my work stress and anxiety about giving a presentation). I could only really feel the acid on one side of my neck and it wasn't very painful but felt more like a warm feeling on the right side of my neck. I went back to taking 20mg daily. I went to see the doctor again because in the interim I had switched from the omeprazone to taking over the counter Nexium. The doctor then prescribed me esomeprazole 20mg daily as she said if the nexium was working it might be best to stick with it. Anyway, the esomprazole didn't really help much after a week i was back to this warm feeling in the right side of neck so i switched back to my 20mg omeprazole. Anyway, the warm feeling doesn't come as often now as it did before so i think thinks are improving and i'm now taking mastic gum capsules before bedtime. The GP has suggested an endoscopy if things don't approve. Does anyone have any experience of a warm feeling like this on one side only?
