    yES. It happened to me too. Been on cit 20 mg for 4 weeks now. Still get that feeling but not as often. I always though it was the meds fighting off the anxiety. Maybe lol

      My whole life i have had heartburn acid reflux. I started taking Pantoprazole. It is a life saver. I started feeling better last week. Almost 4 weeks into it. Cit is brutal stuff. But i was told 7 weeks before results. Im not big on meds either. Wasnt until this year that i started taking certain meds. How long have you been off cit?

    i had the same feeling, but it went away, took anti acid liquid and burning went away after a 1/2 hour, but i would call your dr and tell him just to be sure its not a heart problem.
