Hello everyone. ..new to the board.
I have had acid reflux over the years and also H Pylori. I have been taking Prantopozole on and off since around 2012..come off them as soon as I feel better.
About 2 months ago start feeling sick again and about 1 month ago it worsen, I think as a result of taking antibiotics and also potassium pills.
Before just had abdominal and a bit of chest pain. Now I have both as well as chest pressure so bad it feels like I am going to have a heart attack. I also have burning sensation in my chest and throat and it feels like something is stuck in my throat and upper chest.
Have been to emergency several times in the past month. I have an endoscopy scheduled for this Friday.
I am of course worried about cancer. The Pantaloc 40mg doesn't seem to work so well. The emergency doctor did say I should be taking it twice daily instead of once but need to discuss with my family doctor.
To be honest don't want to go that route so have been supplementing with Gaviscon Tablets.
I suppose I am wondering how l long will it take before it gets better.
I should mention that ftom this week I have only been eating bread, oatmeal with 0%milk & almond slivers and raisins. I also eat sardines in spring water mixed with cucumbers. Also bananas.
I am willing to change my diet if I can get this to go away and come off the PPIs.
