Hi Trish,

The problem is that you are having a bad experience with your acid reflux. You seem exhausted and now have finished into panic attacks.

Please try to be relaxed. Nexium is helping you with acid reflux. However, you need to follow a strict diet (no alcohol, no fries, no chillies, no citrus that can aggravate your situation).

You can use an extra pillow when sleeping. Try to eat at least 4 to 6 hours before going to bed. Drink plenty of natural water.

Get some chamomile tea to be relaxed. When you have "acidic attack", take 1 small (coffee) spoon with baking soda, mixed with 1/3 of water and drink it. It will help relieve the burning sensation.

Apart taking chamomile tea or other stress-fighting tea, talk to your doctor for the best anti-panic drug specifically for you.

Hi, I havent been able to eat or drink anything for the past 24 hours. I have a history of indigestion problems, and I have no stomach aches or pains. However, whenever I try to eat something, or even drink water - I get a severe indigestion and must throw up. I went to the doctor earlier, and he gave me nexium, however, it has not helped and i am still unable to keep anything down. Any ideas, or suggestions on what to do? I am supposed to go back in in 5 days- however, i cant go that long without eating. I have already lost over 5 pounds.
