For years I have had sometimes disabling stomach issues and acid reflux. My primary care practitioner told me to take acid reducers and to eat at least every 2 hours when I initially brought it up (2-3 years ago). The issues have gradually worsened since then and she referred me to a gastroenterologist (I have yet to make an appointment) and had me on a two week Prilosec treatment. At the end of the treatment the acid was greatly decreased, but less than three days later the stomach issues and acid reflux was back (and it feels even worse than before).
I can hardly eat anything without some digestive consequence or another. Yesterday I was in pain (muscle pain and stomach crap) and after I ate an early dinner I felt really full and bloated, but I had no need to use the restroom until this morning. When I did, it took a very long time for me to actually feel the need to and even longer for anything to happen (which even the BM needed me to press on my stomach).
Even after using the bathroom and eating a healthy breakfast, everything still hurts and at this point there hasn't been a day for a very long time where I haven't felt gross stomach-wise.

Unfortunately, I am lactose intolerant.
And yes, a family member helps manage my medications and one day I just didn't have a Prilosec left.
Till the ppi effects wear off
Thank you very much for your advice! I'll give it a shot!
