Hello, I was diagnosed with GERD and a small peptic ulcer in 2007 (approx). I took 10mg of nexium once a dat until 2012. I then stopped for a year in 2013 before trying ranitidine which did not work effectively. I am now on a 20mg omeprazole once a day and have been for 6 months... heartburn is the worst it's ever been with a consistent "stabbing pain" under the sternum. I have not had a endoscopy in 5 years. Any thoughts on what's going on here/I should do...? I am healthy otherwise and exercise regularly.
Will do. One last question, would it be acceptable to increase the omeprazol dosage to 40mg per day until I get my appointment with the GP (Monday or Tuesday presumably) or should I just grin and bear it?
