Ppi or h2 blockers

I seem to be having a problem taking nexium. When I take it for period of time, I get side pain and just don't feel right, but when I don't take it I start getting this horrible bottomless put feeling dead center of my stomach. I can't deal with this. What's something natural we can take other than these ridiculous meds. Anyone else taking something that they can share?

    I take over the counter antacids like Gaviscon which gets rid of the hearburn with no side effects.  Milk is also a great antacid if you can tolerate it because it is natural.

      There is no artificial medicine without side effect. It can be mild or more based on the person.

      For some reason if I get prescribed artifical medicine, I can't tolerate it but if I get over the counter artificial medicine, I get no ill effects at all.  Maybe what the doctor gives me is too strong for me.

    Where is the pain located because I have been in pain on my left side mid section to the left. And i take nexuim 40 mg my PMC can't figure it out

      That's where my pain is

      Left side.. it's not pain where I'm in a fetal position, but just feel like something is there.

      So I know nexium is probably one of the worst things to take, I'm wondering if the pain is a contribution from taking nexium and maybe there is something better we can take.

      Omg that is exactly what I feel and they keep doing test and everything turned normal. They say is stress and I don't buy it. I had a endoscopy and I end up having a small sliding hiatal hernia and a small inflammation in the duodenum and the small intestine. I'm just sick of it. I had cancer test, they check my liver, pancreas l, gallbladder you name it is done even female ultrasounds. They can't figure it out and they want to do exploratory surgery and I said no

      Oh wow, it's really scary and annoying. I just hope it's nothing bad.

      Do you get it also mid stomach? Like a gnawing pain?

      It's probably stress.. I mean if you checked everything. Im telling you nexium is not good.

      It stops the calcium going to your bones.

      Try other doctors opinion.

    Hi Cathy. Work with your diet.

    I am pretty sure you are taking some food and its timing intolerable to your stomach.

    Go for natural remedies like garlic, ginger, turmeric, coconut oil, black pepper and honey etc.

    Ask me if you want to the clear natural diet plan.
