    Sorry to hear bout ur situation. I have been on ppis 30mg daily for the past 6years. I have been diagnosed last 2015 with a large hiatal hernia. gastritis and mild esophagitis. My acid is always the silent one, sometimes the burning shoots up to my throat. I have chest pains, rib pains, shoulder pains, arms and back pains, and tinnitus which i believe are due to the acid reflux. Just cant keep off these ppis . I think we are having the same symptoms as to the pains we experience. What medications do u take?

    Hi Karen

    I too experience the pain in between my breast, I also get pain in the upper chest area which is also tender, I was told by my GP that it was costochondritis (if that’s correct spelling) my acid reflux is really getting my down right now, I’m currently on peptac, ranitidine & esomeprozole.

    I’m feeling very tired, unmotivated & just generally ill, I am also a anxiety sufferer which contributes.. who knew reflux could cause so many problems!

    Hope you get your chest pain sorted x

      Hi Karen, I too have suffered with gerd and hiatus hernia for over 20years been on 40mlg of omeprazol for probably 15 years I also take Ranitidine when the symptoms are bad and gaviscon advance. I'm suffering atm terribly, also I'm a sufferer of health anxiety, over the last 12 months gone through terrible stress, I believe a lot of our symptoms are also related to stress, have all the symptoms you've described it's horrible isn't it, I'm seeing my gastro consultant on the 25th Sept I really would like to get off ppi's as I'm concerned of the side effects that come with them, Hope you get some relief soon regards Jo xx
