Hi all! I am new to this forum. I usually post on a different forum. I had an episode on Christmas Eve where I kept getting this tingling feeling near my clavicle bone and extending out to my left arm and pains in my back but it was only irritated whenever I ate something. I would also feel like I had to burp but it was just sitting in the middle of my chest and wouldn't move. Naturally I went to the ER to see if it was my heart. Being a woman, our symptoms for heart attack are different from the standard symptoms. They did two EKG's both of which were normal. They took a chest x-ray and ran blood tests; all normal, thank God.
I have been prescribed by my doctor to take omeprazole 20mg daily. It was helping for a while since October but lately it hasn't been helping especially this month when I started my cycle which I think caused my indigestion to flare up this bad. I have been going through perimenopause symptoms some which include a lot of gastrointestinal changes and upset. When my doctor prescribed the omeprazole my symptoms were not this persistent but he was only prescribing it to keep my indigestion from turning into full scale acid reflux.
What other meds are out there besides omeprazole that you all have used that actually help? I know everyone is different and how we react to medicine is different but any suggestions are helpful. Thanks!
