Question Nexium- does it help you?

I was recently diagnosed with Gerd & Hiatus hernia though I haven't ever had heart burn as far as I know! Just the bad chest pain, constant cough & that horrible lump in the throat feeling.

I was put on Nexium 40mg 4 weeks ago & for the 1st 3 weeks I felt so much better! No chest pain at night- just a bit when I was very active, & the cough was heaps better. But this last week the cough has come back with a vegenance! I'm being very careful with diet etc & can't work out why the situation has changed!

If acid is the cause of the cough & Nexium is supposed to stop the acid- then I wonder why I'm coughing again? Perhaps I'm being naive here Does the Nexium becoming ineffective when you get use to it?- & so quickly?

I have another 4 weeks of the Nexium 40 mg & then the plan is that I go on Nexium 20 mg for another 8 weeks- then have another Endoscope to see if the situation has improved.

Even water makes me cough at the moment!
