I was diagnosed with mild chronic reflux esophagitis LA grade A after an endoscopy about 2 years ago, when I was 51. For at least 15 years I’ve had dysphasia on/off with vomiting at times, and pretty intense GERD symptoms that have been pretty controlled with 20mg of omeprazole daily. However, about 6 weeks ago I developed some GI bug or gastritis that caused nausea, horrible indigestion, constipation, and ultimately pretty severe GERD symptoms that I’m currently dealing with for about 10 days. I went to the ED initially and they did an abdominal CT with contrast and it was fairly normal. Now I’m having chest pain, feels like something’s caught in my throat, bloating, belching, and really uncomfortable. The omeprazole isn’t working anymore, even 40 mg daily. Of course I’m all concerned about esophageal cancer, but I feel somewhat reassured that my EGD 2 years ago only showed mild reflux esophagitis and I don’t think cancer can grow that quick, but maybe. Has omeprazole stopped working for anyone? What did you do after it stopped working? I can’t get in to see a GI doctor for 2 months.
