If I did not know better, i'd say I was having a heart attack; but I've been through it many times and seem to come out of it fine. Here is how it comes on: I canb e eating, generally at a restraunt with my wife and I'll first develope hickups, then tremendous pain in the center of my chest. At this point, I'm virtually gasping for breath and feel like I need to throw up. When I do get to a place where I can throw up; i get nothing but white frothy foam, no food. These attacks can last from 5 minutes to 4 hours. Needless to say, my wife has had to finish her meal, pay the tab and come out to find me leaning agains a building and throwing up white froathy foam and slime, no food.
I don't believe the doctors understand what is going on. They have had me on 40 MG (once a day) of Omeprazole for a couple of years; and just recently an ENT doctor switched me to Nexium and upped the dose to 40MG morning and 40 MG evening. I'm really scared about what these meds are doing to my body; anybody have similar problems and/or suggestions.
