Anyone have these symptoms? Please help!

I have had trouble with acid reflux for about 3 years now and have been taking Nexium 40mg for the entire time. I had a scope done about three years ago and one about a year ago. Both were fine. Lately I have had an awful pain under my right shoulder blade, it feels like it is pushing on a nerve and radiates into my shoulder and head. I also have an awful burning sensation on the mid-right side of my chest, right in front of were the back pain is. I am constanly bringing up acid and I can't sleep because when I lay down I wake up choking and coughing. It feels like the acid is in my lungs and I am scared and don't know what to do? Any suggestions, and does anyone else experience this? Should I consider changing my medication? The nexium has controlled my symptoms for the most part until now, but anytime I try to stop the symptoms come back. Thanks!

Re: Anyone have these symptoms? Please help!

I do.. I find that after taking my meds for sometime continously, I am somehow becoming med resistant and the things stopss working.. so what I do is I stop for soemtime.. maybe 1 to 2 weeks and substitute alternative medicines instead like ginger, honey or acv... then I would continue the PPI and it would work again..
