    Question Nexium and Chest Pain?

    I was recently prescribed Nexium and it was effective for my GERD and LPR but I had an odd chest discomfort while in bed after taking it. I had a sensation like a finger poking into my chest on the left side. I know that chest pain is listed as a severe side effect but I am not sure the pain I experienced was the chest pain they warn about. I did stop taking it as a precaution and I have been trying other meds, but nothing seems to work like Nexium especially for the LPR.
    Comments appreciated.

    Re: Nexium and Chest Pain?

    I had horrible chest pains the one month I was on Nexium. None of my doctors believe it was related to the drug though. I did get them to switch me to Protonix which works a lot better for me. It took about two months for the chest pain to taper off. I occassionally still get some chest discomfort and that's probably heartburn ( I have LPR). I DID NOT have chest pains prior to starting Nexium.
