My Primary Doctor put me on Dexilant 60mg for stomach ulcer pains, haven't been scoped or anything invasive yet, we're doing 4 weeks of this to see if the pain goes away or starts to demimish. Originally it was a burning and gnawing feeling in the middle upper abdomen just below the sternum.
Since starting this that pain has completely gone away. Only problem now is I randomly will have a spasm like feeling inside my stomach (around the same middle upper area) almost like I aggrivated it somehow.
Is having pains while an ulcer heals common? I know it's a PPI so it's suppose to reduce acid production, but I can still do things that would cause pain right?
I also noticed one of the side effects of Dexilant is stomach pains and tightness.. maybe that could also be giving me cramps / spasm like feelings?
It's almost like someone stabs their finger into an open would for about a second or two then back to normal. Tylenol seems to help some with the pain when it does happen, but it's happened maybe once a week since I started this two weeks ago? Usually happens when I sit for a long period of time in a slouched position (a.k.a. while at work...)
What pains are common when recovering from a stomach ulcer? The gnawing / burning feeling at least is under control.
