I have suffered with acid reflux on and off for years and following a gastroscopy was put on Omeprazole, which I took for a few years every single day. My main symptom originally was constant nausea with sore throat and hoarse voice. I was told there were signs of mild oesophagitis and also h-pylori, which I had the treatment for.
Then I read some very scary things about PPI's and so for some time stopped taking them altogether, but then reluctantly went back on 1- 2 per week, as nothing else worked as well for me. I thought they were an absolute miracle tablet - I could eat or drink anything and not have any acid reflux. At that time PPI's were being dished out like sweets, now I think they are more cautious about long term use.
Fast forward; a couple of weeks ago I started feeling really sick all of the time with bad stomach ache and burping, so took Omeprazole every day, but for some reason it didn't help at all, which has never happened before. Managed to see doctor and she said to double the Omeprazole dose and is sending me for blood test.
No way was I going to take take double Omeprazole when it was not working for me anyway, so for past five days the only thing I have had is Gaviscon. For the first couple of days I actually felt a bit better, but now I feel just as sick.
Can acid reflux cause constant nausea?
I am scared; there is just too much information out there:(
