Dear Doc,

I have had an Upper GI endoscopy done on Nov 2012 and was diagnosed with GERD (Multiple Erosions) and H.Pylori Positive. I was on H.Pylori kit for 14 days and than followed by 5 months of Rabonik 40 DSR. I had discontinued the use of Rabonik for the last 7 days and it seems acidity has struck back again. Also please let me know any side effects of Rabonik DSR or any other PPI being used for such a long period of time. I have completed 3 months of Rabeprazole.

As per the advice in May 2013, I was on Rabeprazole 20mg once a day for the last 3 months. I had stopped it around 8 days back and it seems the acid reflux and burning and struck again for the last 3 days. Also, I have been having a constant feeling of something in my throat during swallowing, even water. My throat burns throughout the day, sometimes more sometimes less. Please help me out as it really takes a toll on my personal and professional life. It seems that PPI has to be my life companion, which is frustrating at my age of 32. All my other vital are OK including a recent CBC.

I recently had a serum Magnesium test done, which showed my levels as Low.

1.7 mg/dL (reference range 1.8 - 2.4 mg/dL) Method : Spectrophotometry)

Does it have any relation to GERD and prolonged PPI use of over 7 months.

Please advice.

Best Regards

Thanks for the question.

Since most antacid medications are not proving helpful, possibility of gastric ulcer needs to be ruled out in your case. Unable to sleep is more of due to acidity and not side effect of medications.

Hi, I have been suffering from erosive gastritis for 2 years now. My attacks sometime lasts for hours and I get my attack almost everyday. Antacids don t seem to take effect most of the times. I sweat alot and cannot speak when I get my attack. I have done a number of test from endoscopy, blood test to heterophile antibody test, which all came back negative. They just say that I have a few ersoions in my stomache. I have taken all sorts of medications from esomoprezole for almost a year, to ranitidine , pylokit. I am taking vitcofol injection (10 shots), sanofide, emanzen, rabeprazole , zenpride, ofloxacin at the moment but It doesn t seem to help. My right breast (rib cage) hurts first and the pain spread around back. I asked the doctors why right breast hurts but they say it is not related to my erosive gastritis, but whenever I get the attack, my right breast hurts the most. I had my gal bladder removed a few years ago.
