Heart Burn / Indigestion Overview

Heartburn, also known as pyrosis,[1] cardialgia, or acid indigestion[2] is a burning sensation[3] in the chest, just behind the breastbone or in the epigastrium, the upper central abdomen.[4] The pain often rises in the chest and may radiate to the neck, throat, or angle of the jaw.

anyone?
does anyone taking rabeprazole have side effects such as very low back pain and pain in legs....like a real bad constant ache....I have only been on this med for 5 days....thank you...Syl... ## Hello, Sylbona! How are you? Yes, it certainly can and it tends to cause them very fast, too. I discovered that when I tried it myself, both it and Lansoprazole do me in. Have you contacted your doctor? It would likely be best to try a different medication.

Nexium side effects?
I have been given a prescription of Nexium for a gerd/reflux issue. However, since I've been taking it, it seems like my arthritis ( mainly in my hands ) has been hurting more and getting worse. Is arthritis inflammation or joint soreness a side effect of Nexium? ## Have you been taking any other vitamins or medications with the Nexium? Although joint pain is not specifically listed as a side-effect (headaches are possible though), I am wondering if there are any drug interactions going on here.

ACID REBOUND and Rebamipide Mucosta
after stopping meds omeprazole 20mg twice a day which i took for 45 days, i suffered from acid rebound, severe burning sensation in stomach i never felt before after i was told by a gastroent to stop taking meds. he put me on mucosta 3x a day for 7 days and asked me to come back if symptoms still there. is mucosta safe to take 2wks and wont cause any complications? ## Why were you taking the Omeprazole? If it was to treat a specific condition, such as an ulcer or GERD, then 45 days is a really short time to be on it, most of these medications are used for at least 3 to 4 months. Did he say why he wanted you to stop taking it? Acid rebound is always possible, when you stop using these types of medications abruptly. The Rebamipide is an amino acid derivative, that is used to mucosal prote...

esso 40mg
Hey.doctor advised me to take one esso before breakfast daily...as i am using sert after breakfast....if i forget to take esso before bf can i take it later..before sert or? Kindly advise.... ## Hello, Khan! How are you? I didn't find any interactions listed between the Esso and Sert, you should double check with your doctor to be certain, but they should be fine to take together. Learn more Esso details here. Learn more Sert details here. However, for the Esso to work best, it should be taken just before a meal, not after. The reason for that is to give it a chance to start working, by the time your stomach is releasing more stomach acids to digest your meal. Is there any way you could make some type of reminder for yourself to take it before breakfast and not afterwards? ## what a...
