Acid Reflux?

So I've been taking antiacids for about 8 years now for nausea after eating. I currently take 1 nexium/day. Recently I started having chest pain and neck pressure. Doctors seem to think it's acid. I had a endoscopy and all they found was gastritis. When it gets really bad, it's hard for me to eat and I get a really full feeling. Does all this sound like Acid Reflux or could it be the gastritis? I guess I just have had a hard time understanding how this can be from acid when I don't feel acid in my throat or anything. The doctor suggested taking 2 nexium a day. Ugh

    Hi Stacey.

    Your problem could be gastroparesis. Do you feel full after small meals ? Also, read the side effects of your meds.Stu

      Is gastroparesis something they could diagnose from an endoscopy? I just read the side effects of nexium. Doesn't say anything about neck pressure or chest pain or anything.

      Nope...It is a digestion test. Not enough acid is when food sits, and is slow to digest. Nexium is poison in my opinion, and is only for a few months, until the real issue is resolved. Stu

      Well thank you for bringing that up, I will ask my doctor about it. I agree about Nexium. I hate that I have to take it. I don't really like the idea of taking any medicine. Would prefer a natural cure.

    Worth getting further investigations maybe. Is your gall bladder ok? Have you had a PH test? I have been tested recently whereby I had to drink a radiated drink (no taste, went down like water) they found that the acid was going up to my nose. I have had ear, nose and throat symptoms so have decided to have surgery which is happening this Wednesday. Good luck with your follow up.
