Hi Steve, It’s Adrian got off Nexium 10 days ago, had minor heartburn all was good, but awful problem with swallowing, got panicked and started Nexium again. It turns out it was tonsil stones causing the problem, do you know whether dry mouth (Nexium side effect) could have caused the tonsil stones. I hate those PPIs I can’t stand them and yet I am taking them. H2 blockers seemed not to help with heartburn although I take them with 8 oz glass of water. Once I am off the meds I will start a petition against PPIs being prescribed without upper gastroscopy. This experience is hell.. Lost 20 pounds being on them..
