I think I may have gastritis. I started Pregabalin for anxiety about eight weeks ago and about 1-2 times a week since I’ve had mild heartburn/uncomfortable tummy.My dose was increased at the weekend and part of Sunday, yesterday and today my tummy has felt off. Sort of empty and weird. Not painful. When I’m hungry it’s really growly. Eating helps a bit.I have some Esomeprazole 20mg would that help?I have health anxiety so this is worrying me.I’m female, 49.
