Have been having a lot of burning in my stomach and real nauseous.  The burning gets so bad sometimes that I have discomfort in my chest and my back. 

I went to see my doctor and she said I Have Gerd.  I Was Given Omeprazole and hope it starts working quick because I Am Miserable. 

Has anyone had gerd and can anyone give me any suggestions on how or what to do to be more comfortable. 

Thank You

      Thank You Robert For Replying. 

      Yes Zofran is excellent for nausea.  I always have it on hand so when I have my vertigo attacks due to BPPV. 

      Thank You

      Have A Great Day.

    I have had GERD for years and it can give me chest pain and a cough.  Omeprazole worked for me.  Simply try the omeprazole and give it a chance to work; don't worry because anxiety can make heartburn worse.  Eat little but often, don't eat too late at night and keep a food diary to see if any foods set the burning off.  Fatty, rich and spicy foods are not good for GERD and affect me.  I have IBS as well and I am living a perfectly normal life because I have simply got used to the symptoms.

      Thank You Pippa for replying.  I have been taking the medication as directed and I am feeling better.  I still get the little cough in the morning but not like before.  I am staying away from spicy foods as well as juices and citrus plus chocolate. 

      Have  a Great Day. 🌸
