Hello and hope you are good.
The common side effects of Nexium are dizziness, confusion; jittery feeling, nausea, stomach pain, gas or constipation. In hiatal hernia a part of the stomach sticks upward into the chest and causes chest pain, heartburn, and swallowing difficulty. Your husband’s symptoms can be explained by his hiatal hernia. Treatment aims at relieving the symptoms and preventing complications. Medications for controlling gastro esophageal reflux will be helpful. He should avoid large heavy meals and reduce weight if he is overweight. Avoid smoking. In cases which do not respond to these measures surgery may be needed. It is best to seek medical help.
Best luck and regards!
