Acid rebound?

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi, does the pain from acid rebound go away after you eat? I ran out of PPIs two days ago and I’ve had bad stomach pain since. It feels slightly better after I eat. Acid rebound, or unhealed ulcer? It’s a burning, full feeling in my stomach along with lots of nausea.

    If it matters, I was on 40 mg once a day. The doctor didn’t say anything about side effects or having to wean myself off of them, Had to learn for myself. Hmph.

    PPis are supposed to lower acid levels in your stomach and eating gives that acid "something to do"

    Acid reflux doesn't cause stomach pain - go back to your doctor either for more PPIs or further examination.

    Meanwhile the product advertised on the right is the best on the market - starts with a G and ends with a con.

    I am not a medically trained person but had a perforated ulcer 59 years ago and "lost" two thirds of my stomach.

      Also try fasting and drink some water! I apologize  for overloading you with info I’ve just been dealing with it for months and was desperate for answers at one point myself. Don’t eat close to bed time.

      Thank you!!! I definitely don’t mind an overload of information. I had none to begin with. So sorry you’re dealing with this! Hope you get better

    Hi Kate,

    It may not be a rebound effect I was on PPIs for several weeks now I no longer take them. I realize it has to do with my diet rather than the acid reducers. If I eat too much at one time it triggers my acid reflux symptoms as well. Yes it can cause a dull nawing bloated pain if you are experiencing gastritis, duodenitis as well (GERD).
