    Hi Jolie.

    Sorry to hear you are going through this, iv been there.

    I was on lansoprosole for about 5 years. One day early later year I thought I was having a heart attack, but it was the acid Reflux, so they upped my

    Dose and said take gaviscon. Worked for a few months and it was back

    again this time my bp was all over the place palputations and a racing

    heart, so was put on beta blockers which calmed me down for a week

    but I started fainting, then I started with server health anxiety.

    I took myself off the lansoprosole and was advised to stop the beta

    Blockers, but with the he'll of a year I had on different Meds it's left my

    mind in bits, I an now going through the side effects of ant depressants.

    I feel for you, but the more anxious you get the worse the reflux will be.

    Now iv calmed down a bit, I try and control it with diet and gaviscon

    when needed. And it's about 80% better than it was, one of my main

    trigger is wine, it cripples me, just my luck.

    Hope you get sorted soon

    Best wishes

    Until you can get medical care, I would try aloe Vera juice and Gaviscon advance to help with the pain. My sympathies
