Does anyone else get a right sided stitch like pain when the acid reflux flares up? I've been getting it since my reflux has been bad. I'm also noticing since going on lansoprazole that my skins been easily irritated. I know it mentions this on the leaflet but I wasn't sure if uts common. I have mentioned both to the doctor and they said the tablets can cause the irritation and that they cant see anything to be concerned about with the right sided pain-possibly muscle tension. I've had blood tests done-full blood count, liver and kidney function etc and nothing shows up. It would be interesting to see if this is related. Xx

    That's funny you should say that because I get it on my left side, and I put it down to maybe trapped wind?? X

      Yeah it sounds similar. it feels like trapped wind up under my ribs almost but it just doesn't seem to go most of the time. Xx

    Hi , yes I get this sometimes. Stomach feels a bit tender there if you press it. In my case for me that is a sign of gerd, coupled with a touch of gastritis and slow motility in the stomach. I moved from Lansoprazole to Omeprazole and upped the dose and take Domperidone too. It takes time to heal and symptoms improve but it gradually does, so please be patient, although I still have the occasional flare up. Hope this helps.

      Thanks, I just saw the doc again and I've just been referral to an ENT (finally!) so hopefully things will improve once they've had a look and done a proper diagnosis. X
