Hi, I've been on 15mg lansoprazole once a day for years, then a couple of years ago I started getting the feeling that there was a lump moving up inside my chest to my throat then back down again... just as if you were going to burp, but it wouldn't come out. It was constant, just as the feeling went down my throat it would come back up again. My GP increased my dose to 30mg once a day, and things settled down. On the 31st August this year, i suffered the worst case of reflux during the night that i have ever had, acid burning through my stomach and up into my throat. I went back to my GP who again upped my dose to 30mg morning and 30mg at night, but this awful up and down feeling in my gullet persisted continually for a full 12 days, I stayed on a bland fat free diet, and yesterday for the first time felt much better. I celebrated with half a tiny peice of pork sasauge.... disaster !!!! felt so ill with reflux within half an hour of eating. I am now so scared and worried that I may have cancer or some other reason for this awful condidtion. WHY would lansoprazole suddenly stop working ? Today i feel awful, not hungry, burning stomach, feel sick and still have reflux... any advice please. thank you
