I have had many tests on my heart over the past 10 months, all come back as normal. I do have occasional ventricular bigeminy.
My doctor says the chest pains and burning sensations are probably gastric or maybe caused by anxiety. He prescribed omeprazole in July, I took 10 and saw no change although I did blame an attack of palpitations on them. I have started on Omeprazole again, for 4 days now (20 mg once a day). I see no improvement and get burning feeling on chest for long periods, its usually relieved when I lay down. Went cycling yesterday and today, no problem at all - if anything the chest discomfort was relieved by exercise.
Sometimes I feel better taking antacids although i'm never entirely sure what is working and what isnt. I have a sensation of 'butterflys' in my stomach tonight, happened once I had eaten supper. I'm worried Omeprazole is not for me, any suggestions would be most welcome.
If you are responding to antacids, then you would find relief with PPi like omeprazole.
Since you dont find relief you need evaluation with upper GI endoscopy and 24 hours pH monitoring.
Moreover inaddition to medications lifestyle changes are also essential for complete relief.
