I have had pain in my stomach since the end of May and its not going away. I have a lot of gas. I mostly have diarrhea, no hardness. My stomach pains seem to come for 5-10 minutes and will go away for a few hours then return. I have been losing weight and have had no appetite. I had went to the doctor for having a sever back pain and constipation was the cause and i had to take milk of magnesium for it. I am currently taking Nexium with my food that I do eat. Any suggestions to what could be causing this?
Nexium and other proton pump inhibitors should be taken 1 hour before eating in the morning, unless directed otherwise by your doctor. Did you see an gastro doctor, or just a general practitioner and did they run any tests. I have GERD (gastro-erosive reflux disease) and I take prevacid (2 pills) first thing every morning. It can take a few weeks of regular use to stop the pain and you may need to see your dr again if you feel the medium is not helping. You can take an over the counter gas preventative and tums if you have more burning/indigestion while on nexium. You may need other tests or treatment, see your dr if this gets no better soon.
