its definitely at its worse now compared to other transition points

but honestly the burn isnt whats bothering me as much as just the straight up ache in my chest which ive had since may but seems to get worse with no pill involved

Re: For those that have successfully gotten off ppi's and had rebound

I was hoping the last transitions would get easier than earlier ones, but not from what you are experiencing. Hope you improve soon.

honestly the transition to say every other day to every other 2 days has been easier not a huge difference but the burning def has increased but i can tolerate it as i said the chest is really whats causing me issues now and i think thats related to the hernia but yet the burning hasnt gotten much worse compared to how the chest feels if that makes sense

depends..for the most part its mid to upper abdomen

but i do get burn in my throat sometimes depends on the day i eat the same things so i dont know why one day is good one day bad

but the chest is very rarely burning its more a dull ache pressure

alot of the burning is pretty random at this point..it does happen in the chest as i said but for the most part the other areas

Re: For those that have successfully gotten off ppi's and had rebound

Oh, is that from coming off the meds, a side effect of being on the meds, or did you always have that pain?

burning in my stomach ive had for years now..i never really had reflux going up to my throat bad till may of this past year..and same with the chest ache all of that started and got worse in may out of no where

my current dr says the chest ache is from the hernia but no one has ever said the hernia could be causing anything else im going through

thats my concern with this is going through this whole process and then still possibly needing surgery or something for the hernia

but its not like the medicine was really helped me..it eased some of these new symptoms but i was still in consistent pain so that was the main reason to go off the med besides my thoughts that it has cause more harm then good if its not fully helping me then why be on it

I eat a lot of rice. I use basmati rice as its supposed to be gentle on the stomach + vegetables, soups etc.

Re: For those that have successfully gotten off ppi's and had rebound

so i been off the med for 3 weeks with the weaning lasting over a month..i dont really have any burning without eating

but once i eat no matter what i eat i usually have burning and chest pain

im leaning towards this being hernia related

i just got back from the dr and he wants to do another bravo capsule on me this time im not on the medicine plus my symptoms have changed since the last

if it turns out to be acid related then we are going to talk more about surgery

Re: For those that have successfully gotten off ppi's and had rebound

only thing now im concerned about is the bravo capsule last time i had it 2 years ago i had horrible chest pain when swallowing with it and couldnt really eat regular

im worried if i have this again and if my eating is altered then the test results wont be accurate

im debating the ph probe one but that sounds uncomfortable too dont know if that will be a better option though to avoid the pain from the capsule
