Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


I never had that "piercing" and "extreme burning" feeling in my chest until I started taking PPI's, and, a lot of times, my symptoms worsened after taking a dose of my PPI (i.e. by the time that it was being digested, I felt pain). So...2.5 weeks ago, I switched from two 20mg Prilosec's to one; and then for about 2 weeks, I've been totally off of Prilosec. Overall, I'm doing better than I would be if I were on PPI's, as strange as that may seem.

It's very interesting and atypical. The first week that I came completely off of Prilosec (i.e. cold turkey) I felt really good. I'm convinced, the actual PPI was causing me pain. During my glorious 5-6 days when I stopped cold-turkey, it actually came to a point where I was drinking coffee and eating corned beef sandwiches with mustard, with no problems (Still had mild heartburn problems/bloating, but nothing I couldn't control with a little medication, i.e. similar to before PPI's/Pain/etc.

With that said, being so confident, I made the mistake of eating a latin dish, consisting of shredded beef in a tomato-like sauce, along with lots of beans and rice. With that said, I think that a lot of the problem was that I tested my limits too much and ate WAY too much of it. About an hour later, I was suffering (didn't have pain) and felt like I had a lake in my stomach - Took about 3-4 hours to fully go away, but it was absolutely dreadful. The next day and for about 4 days, I had that oh so familiar piercing/burning pain come back. I'm wondering if this was started all because of that one meal/reflux incident, or because I just absolutely loaded up on medications (zantac/pepcid). Regarding the latter, I know that those meds don't give you rebound, but I'm wondering if you happen to take such a huge quantity, that it actually might trigger rebound mechanisms in your stomach.

The pain slightly reduced over several days, and now today, although I'm not feeling as good as I was during most of that "first week," I'm doing better. I'm wondering if that set-back had more to do with my idiotic over-eating of a heartburn triggering food, or if it was just part of the rebound process with coming off of Prilosec.

Anyway, like I said earlier, at least I'm doing better than I would be if I were on PPI's. I'll try to update this thread as much as I can.
