I followed up about three weeks ago following an ER visit due to non cardiac related chest pain. They switched me to Protonix, which in my opinion is worse than the Omeprezol, (I began supplementing it with 150mg Zantac BID). Still no word on the referral to a gastroenterlogist. Inhaler is not helping with the wheezing. Shortness of breath still an issue. Still having pains across chest and upper abdomen. Still dealing with Nausea, but no coffee ground vomit, so I guess it could be worse. I just...I'm tempted to try and get an appointment with a specialist on my own.
