From this study (7 months ago):
I Have Been On These Medication For Awhile But I Have Been On GabApentin For A Year. My Sugar Levels Have Gone Up And Have Gain Weight.
Was diagnosed with SLE and Lupus Nephritis Dec 2012, I was on prednisone for 9 months, completely off a month ago. Cellcept since Dec 2012, lisinopril and plaquenil since around feb 2013.
Started getting difficulty swallowing and nausea that comes and goes (not necessarily at the same time) about 2 months ago when I was on 5mg of prednisone and chalked it up to tapering side effects. No longer on prednisone, nausea has continued, Dr. put me on Ranitidine 2 weeks ago and the horrible gagging everytime I swallowed subsided, but it's still difficult to swallow a lot of the time (food, not saliva, drink, or even pills.) It seems to get worse randomly after I eat, but I'm wondering if it's not just stomach acid but something bigger.
Rheumatologist told me that putting me on a PPI might be the next course of action rather than Ranitidine because PPIs promote the healing of injuries caused by stomach acid, but I'm wondering if I need to go see a GI about this since I let it go unchecked for so long.
