Waking up feeling 'stretched'?

For those on PPIs longer term, have you ever had the sensation when waking up in the morning of the top of the stomach / lower esophogus feeling stretched? (I guess just behind the sternum). Stretched is the best I can describe it. It dissipates about 5 minutes after getting up.

I sleep mostly on my back and sides and on a water bed.

Re: Waking up feeling 'stretched'?

I do get that sometimes in the morning, actually under the right breastbone down my stomach and I also find I get it after eating at times when I get up to walk it is like my stomach is pulling or stretching, I have gained alot of weight in my stomach since being on omeprazole first then to rantitidene and now prilosec but at least I don't have the severe pain I was having with the heartburn. I also never knew how to actually describe the feeling either but what you said is right on...
