i have a question for everyone who has bad enough GERD to cause everyday problems. i've been on protonix for a couple years now, i've had GERD for about four or five. lately i've been REALLY nauseated everytime i eat. and though i do have a tendency towards spicy foods, i've NEVER had a problem like this before. i don't really believe that it's the acid reflux making me this sick, but my PCP does. it doesn't really feel like acid indigestion, sometimes it feels like i have a stomach virus, though i never actually throw up. it's only started in the last two weeks or so. and very suddenly. anyone else with severe GERD have real bad problems like this?
