    Confused, Your Opinion Please!

    I'll try to make the story quick. I'm a healthy 37yo male w/ no history of stomach or digestive issues. This past Saturday I woke up with what felt like a ton of pressure in my stomach and chest. I was really fatigued and barely could eat. End up going to Dr and my symptoms felt more heart related than digestive. They did blood work, EKG, heart was OK.

    My PCP said it could be digestive issues and said to try Nexium and maybe some form of gas-x. I started feeling a little better (fatigue and appetite got better) about two days ago right around when I started the Nexium.

    Fast forward to last night and today, I'm 100% back to normal with energy and appetite but I am still having bubbling in my stomach, lots of burps (that I feel I need to force out) and a bubble feeling in my throat, especially when laying down (last night I could barely sleep). These feelings are mostly new in the past 24 hours when everything else was getting better.

    My question/confusion - is the Nexium what helped me feel better or is it possible giving me my new symptoms and time is all that was needed? I've been on the Nexium 3 days, I'm thinking of stopping to see where things go? I'm just confused.

    Any thoughts are appreciated.

    The Nexium might be getting your symptoms, but not fully. When you are laying down are you keeping your head elevated? That would help with those night time feeling and help you sleep. Maybe take a Tums before bed too. Give the Nexium a week. If you still feel like it's not working, call your doctor.
