Could my problems be from Nexium?

I have been taking Nexium since last Nov. My gastro said that my esophagus was damaged from my celiac disease. I was shocked, because I thought that Nexium was for heartburn, which I never had! He is keeping me on the Nexium indefinitely.
I have had chest pain and pressure since Nov. and back pain since Dec. Last night the back pain woke me up at 2:30 and I couldn't go back to sleep because of the pain!
I have had MANY tests just lately to rule out anything serious! Nuclear stress test, chest CT, Echo, and Hida scan. All came back normal!
I also take Celebrex for arthritis in my knee. (I'm only 49!)
My question is-- has anyone had chest and back pain from taking Nexium? I've mentioned this to my gastro but he didn't think they were related!
Thanks for any help!!! It would be so nice to get a cause, if possible!

Re: Could my problems be from Nexium?

The only thing I can tell you is that I have upper back pain from my acid reflux condition. I take Prevacid and sometimes the heartburn still acts up. I feel it in my chest which I can tolerate but the upper back pain is awful and an last for hours. One of the side effects of all the PPIs is abdominal pain. Wish I could wean myself from the Prevacid, hope to eventually.
