Diagnosed with acid reflux 7 years ago, negative for Barretts Been on nexium 40 mg. daily for last seven years. One week ago I had pain between shoulder blades and went to Dr. He said I had a slight case of pleurish and put me on super charged anti inflammatory (can't remember the name. I took 800mg of anti inflammatory on empty stomach. That night I was very sick, nausea, vomited once. 24 hours later I was better, however, noticed black tarry stool. I went to the Dr. ran blood tests. Hemoglobin and hemadcrats (sp) were fine, however, I did have blood in my stool. CNP who saw me thought it was a bleed due to anti-inflammatories. Still have the back pain.
Your insight please.
