From this study (3 years ago):
have had issues with undiagnosed severe continual stomach pain on the upper right side right under the ribcage area. have taken several tests including UGI, ct scan, ultrasund, hydascan,colonoscopy, radiologic testing, etc. also have tachycardia and spells where I feel like I am going to faint. blood sugars are sometimes high and I always feel like I am full or have acid reflux. The upper abdoman feels like it's bloated also. No one has been able to diagnose anything and I have been to several hospitals and specialists.

I have the same symptoms bloated stomach fainting spell bad stomach, they say I have esophagitis, which I think metfromin has caused. They want to put me on a proton pump inhibitor indefinitely. I don't know what to do.
From this study (4 years ago):
I was taking Warfarin only until a new stent was implanted and the doctor put me on Plavix and Baby Aspirin in addition to the Warfarin. Ever since I have been put on Plavix & Aspirin, I experience severe heartburn and stomach pain. My doctors decided to take me off the Nexium since studies showed interaction between PPIs and Plavix and/or Warfarin. But the Zantac does not relieve my heartburn, reflux or stomach pain, these conditions even get worse.
