I started taking antibiotics for a bug bite. Soon my chest was hurting and I was congested and felt like I couldn’t breathe. EKG was fine, and went off antibiotics to see if it would help. However, it continued and I was soon prescribed Omperazole for what the convent care thought was GERD, or esophagitis from my cough and congestion. They said if it wasn’t better in 2 weeks of to primary.
Two weeks later there was some relief but still worried about chest pains and coughing up mucus etc. I went to a family practice PA and I felt as though she was rushed and she had me do a blood test, saying she will call later. Its been 4 days since that visit and I don’t know if I should continue taking Omperazole? She gave me 30 capsules and I have only taken 12.
Is this a food intolerance like wheat or lactose, or just heart burn/ GERD or something else? I have been eating fairly healthy and am not overweight. I am tired of feeling this way, help!
