I am 32 yr old female that has had stomach trouble and pain since I was a child. I have been to the doctor in the past and have had previcide and also have taken prilosec. I am now unemployeed and have no insurance. To top off all the financial stress i am now experiencing more stomach pain that is now assiciated with sever pain burnning in the throat and in the pit of my stomach. It feels like there is a giant rock in the middle of my stomach. I also have burnning on my tongue and in what feels like my ears as funny as that sounds. I am unable to find anything OTC that will touch this. I am so acidic I feel like sometimes i cant take it anymore. Please help. I am also now having alot of trouble with gas and also my bowels are burnning as if i am passing pure acid.

I was diagnosed a long time ago with acid reflux but this has gotten so much worse. I am now eating every hour almost just to give my stomach something to eat on.

If so try to get bloodwork done and get tested for h pylori. Prilosec OTC is available over the counter. It sounds like you could use that or an OTC H2 inhibitor (Pepsid, Tagamet, etc.) Good luck.

  • Thank you for your advice. I will try and get to the doctor next week. Things are just getting worse. I tried to lie down to rest because I am also having dizzy spells and when i woke up i noticed that my tounge was burning more than ever and my lips are very sore and feel almost burnt on the inside of them. I cant take much more of this. And it dosent help that i am overweight and eating more to stop the pain. And i have tried prilosec OTC and it dosent help at all I have even tried Aloe Vera water and nothing is helping. Any suggestions until i can get to the DR's would really help.

Drink water, stop drinking ALL caffeine, regular and decaf coffee, alcohol, juice. No spicy/greasy/acidic foods. Don't eat less than three hours before bedtime. Your symptoms do sound extreme. You really need to see a doctor soon!!!

  • This might sound crazy but it works.Go to a health food store and buy some apple cider vinegar.Take 3-7 tablespoons and chase it with water twice daily.
