Hello everyone. I am in awful distress I need some help badly no drs understand or know what is wrong with me.
Basically long story short.
I started taking nexium 40mg when I was around 17 years old (I am now 28) I was prescribed this after zoton did not work for my stomach acid. Nexium always worked for until recently.. I had endoscopy august 2015 because I was vomitting a lot and there was blood to. Aswel as pains in my stomach. The endoscopy showed I had osophagitis, benign stomach polyps and a hiatus hernia. So they told me to start taking 80mg off nexium which I did for a few days but then my GP took it back down to 40mg when the vomiting calmed down a bit. After 11 years on nexium in October 2016 I had to be changed to lansaprazole 30mg because every time I would take the nexium soon as it hit my stomach and started working it would BURN and I would dribble out acid off my mouth especially after big meals. And I would vomit after eating no matter what it was.
The lansaprazole worked for about 1-2 weeks to ease the burning but then it started to burn again after I would eat so the GP told me to start taking x2 daily (60mg total daily)
now as off February 2017 the lansaprazole is doing what the nexium did when I wake up in the morning I feel fine but when I take the lansaprazole the BURNING STARTS omg it is horrific it sent me to A&E twice or 3 times.. it is like petrol was ignited in my stomach and osophagus.. and my mouth waters like hell. It burns and it's so painfull.. it's the same when I eat. Even antacids burn. Malox , renies and gaviscon iv tried it all... I don't know what on earth is wrong.. when I went to A&E they put me on 80mg nexium through IV drip and it got rid off the burning and I felt better BUT I can't take anything orally..
as off today my GP has prescribed me what he calls "the last one". Pantoprazol 20mg.
he said that if this one starts to burn I have to go straight to get a endoscopy and he said if they find ulcers I may have to have surgery. He said usually ulcer would 99.9% heal with PPI..
but he is puzzled why the PPI is causing my stomach to burn instead off helping same goes for taking food. But taking any Tablet seems to be worse...
Just for note .. I feel AWFUL all the time.. malaise. Fatigued. Sick. Severe constipation. Rectal prolapse. Osteoarthritis in knees. An MRI showed Weak back muscles. Heart palpations. Fluid in lower legs. And i am now on lidocaine patches for SEVERE back pain and swellings on my back which my GP likes to call wear on tear off the spine.. All off these conditions has started recently... seemingly before I stopped the nexium. ..
Can anybody shed some light for me? Could it not be anything else like my polyps burning or something I'm really worried about this I'm afraid off the surgery and I need some reassurance that I will be OK. .. I'm scared why the PPI is making me burn when it should be making me better PLEASE HELP ME
