    Throat closing up and chest pain

    I have been on 2-20mg Aciphex a day for years and it's not working anymore. I have had chest pain and the feeling of my throat closing up every day. I am barely eating. Just eating soup and scrambled eggs mostly. I also have a hiatel hernia. Is it time to change meds? I remember Protonix doing a great job. I'm adding Gavison btw. I just had an abdominal CT scan and EKG and they found nothing. Any ideas?

    Is there some particular reason you don't want to repair the hernia?

    When I had my last endoscope the Dr said it bulged up right when he went in, he saw it. He never said anything about repair, just PPI's.

    Perhaps you could ask???? That may be a more permanent fix.
