Ok so a bit of a background on my situation. At 22 years of age I went through a stressful time in my life where I lost about 20 pounds because was not eating much. Stress lasted about a year and was down to 100 pounds at 5'5. Well at 23 started to experience horrible heartburn and reflux, got an endoscopy and found out I had a small hiatal hernia. Well I took prilosec 20mg which helped a lot but never really eliminated the issue. I managed to gain 35 pound (yayyyy)! Because of all that I was reading about the pill, I wanted off. So I tried to wean my self off and it was hard! Took apple cider vinegar but didnt help much. Well I gave up and went back on the pill (prilosec 20mg). The problem is that its not working !! My doc recommended I take it twice a day which I am but still no luck. Could I have caused myself an ulcer? could it be my gallbladder? All these questions are running through my head and I feel like its about to explode. I have been studying for my NCLEX, which I took today and think I passed . So maybe the stress was causing the flare up. But my diet is soooo good! I eat really healthy food and infact have been doing research on eating healthy and food for about three years. I am gluten free/ and eat paleo most of the time as well. So any advice for me!! I want to feel better and eventually in the future I want to try getting off the drug again!
