Old Post. But we're did u feel you had the bloating and what was the outcome with docs?

Laura Mc
I had so much bloating in my stomach Lower and upper... I went down a dose w my nexium. Still get the bloating not as bad though... But have been getting a lot of gas pains lately.. Sucks! Since ppis make food hard to digest it causes alot of bloating I currently take vitamins to help try n reduce bloating also

KJ Breslin Thanks for the reply first of. And a quick 1 at that lol. I started on zantac recently and I have alot of upper and lower bloating like u. It must be the meds does it then cuz I always have indigestion feeling 2 n chest, so I take it it's the meds that do all this then? But then if u don't take meds or if I don't take meds the acid reflux is worse. Lol. So 1 or the other😂

Laura Mc No problem.
Its really trial and error. I have used zantac and it didnt help me I had acid everywhere at my worst and was choking on foods etc. It was terrible. The meds helped but took about 3 weeks to really kick in... Then after a few months I got really bad bloating and pains. So I went down a dose. I do feel a lot vetter than I have been though ... Minus random gas pains here and there and they also radiate to my chest.. So that's scary. ... Stick w the meds or try a diff med and see how u feel!
