Is it a stomach ulcer or severe acid reflux and should I go to the ER?
So about two weeks ago I started having nausea and couldn't keep food down. In the past couple days things have worsened. I feel like I have an air pocket stuck in my chest, I cannot hold ANYTHING down, not even water, I am also having severe stomach pains, excessive sweating, and arm pain the arm pain is only at night . I am constantly gaging and I cannot sleep because the pain is awful. I have never really had any issues with acid reflux, but I am thing it could be a ulcer. I just stopped taking percocet and Ibuprofen because I had kidney stoned and had to have them removed. I am wondering if all the pain medications screwed up my stomach. The other odd thing is that I also have three cold sores on my lip. I read that the bacteria H. Pylori causes stomach ulcers and cold sores. Is it just a coincidence with the cold sores? I have been taking Prilosec, Zantac, Tums, and Pepto, but nothing is working. My symptoms are getting worse. I have a doctor appointment for Monday morning, but I don't know if I can make it until then. I am supposed to work the weekend. But, I do not want to go to the ER for something as stupid as acid reflux and waste everyone's time. Any suggestions on what to do?I haven't been able to sleep at all due to the pain got a whole 30 minutes of sleep last night before having to get up and go to work . The burning pain in my stomach is worse then my chest pain at times.

Pretty much everything I eat comes up.

Best natural/holistic treatment for Barrett's esophagus caused by acid reflux disease/ chronic gastritis?
Anyone else experience acid reflux like this..and any advice?
For going on 7 years now I have been diagnosed with GERD and its been a constant battle to find anything that works well for me. I am currently on a 40mg dose of Protonix but for quite awhile now it seems to not be working the best. With the GERD, I do experience the usual up and down acid reflux thats more of an annoyance rather than a major issue but then there are times that the reflux is unbearable. I wake up choking and coughing, not being able to breathe due to the extreme burning in my throat. It literally feels like someone has branded the back of my throat with a hot iron. I have even had the stuff come up out of my mouth and leave welts because it burned around my mouth. It also brings along a kind of soapy taste and I can feel the burning all the way down into my chest. It feels like utter misery when this is happening and even felt like I would pass out from lack of oxygen because I can't catch my breath from the burning being so bad. I will have a sore throat and a cough for days after an episode. I try taking some liquid antacid, drink water and also eat a piece of plain bread to help absorb the acid but honestly, nothing has really helped. I talked to my GI doc about this and she honestly didn't say too much and recommended a GI cocktail that had Mylanta and Lidocaine mixed in, however my insurance didn't cover it and I couldn't afford it on my own. Does anyone else experience this same thing where their symptoms from this reflux are THIS bad? If so, what are some things that work well to help?I have been on a number of medications throughout the years all including Prilosec, Pepcid, Prevacid pretty much all OTC acid reducers and then also Nexium as well none of these worked then eventually ended up on the Protonix. I also have been diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esophagitus which in itself has had me on alot of different treatments to try. I am 19 and have had these problems since I was 12 so I saw a number of pediatric doctors, then moved onto an adult doctor when I turned 18. I have had about 14 endoscopies over the years to recheck my cell count and inflammation and I do show scarring and alot of inflammation of my esophagus. I have also had colonoscopies which are normal and have had a gastric emptying test which shows delayed digestion in my stomach and a Ph study which showed I have an over production of acid. I also currently have ongoing nausea which can come about anytime of the day and is almost a daily thing and have been on Reglan before but stopped it due to s due to side effects, I have also been on Zofran but it didnt work well. I am now on Promethazine as a rescue nausea med. If you have anymore questions, I will inform anyone the best I can on what I have tried and what I've been through already
Have a father with bad acid reflux, very concerning to me now. PLEASE HELP.?
My father is basically the most thickheaded a person can get. In his progressing years now 55 , he's basically cut off his family, and eliminated his social life. This has to due with many issues, not just the fact he's a grumpy man and anti social. I am not looking for a lecture. I am not looking for a " GO TO THE DOCTOR" answer. He won't. I need to do what I can to help my dad before it gets too bad. My father has been coughing, clearing his throat, and choking more and more lately in his sleep. I've done some research and this really could do with the big issue that he drinks a lot of alcohol before he goes to bed, or eats right before he falls asleep. Again, I'm not looking for any " go to the doctor" advice. I just need tips that a 17 year old concerned daughter can do.I was thinking maybe there are some pills I can buy, that will help with his acid reflux, maybe kick in shortly after he takes them, so I don't have to worry about the man dying in his sleep or something. I've been giving him two tums before bed, but I know that they can only do so much. He is on a generic acid reflux pill, just a cheap dollar store one, and it is called " Omeprazole Magnesium." However, after reading the label, these pills are made to kick in 1 4 days after taken. I need something that I can force him to take before he falls asleep or shortly after he falls asleep that will prevent him from being hurt while he is sleeping. Please, please help. I am desperate at this point. I can't watch this happen anymore. His throat clearing in his sleep has gotten so bad that it wakes me up and scares me.
