Hi - Back in August, on return from holiday I started to suffer from really bad heartburn. At times it felt like a hot rod going straight through my chest and out the back, the pain was so bad, that I was worried that I was having a heart attack. I felt this might have been caused by perhaps eating different food and drinking more whilst on holiday, but as the weeks wore on the symptoms became more frequent with strange stabbing pains all over my chest, a dull, knawing ache in the middle of my chest, a feeling as if my oesophagus was swollen and dreadful acid reflux and pain waking me up several times every night.
I eventually went to see my G.P. who put me on Lansopraxole 30 mg once daily. Since starting the medication, it took about 10 days for the reflux to settle down but I have been feeling constantly sick. I have my suspicions that it is the medication that is making me feel so nauseous but if I stop I am really worried about the relux returning.
It was 13 years ago when I suffered from a similar problem and was treated for the Helicabactor Pylori bacteria (sorry spelling?) and I was just wondering how many people have had a recurrence of this problem?
