It is possible that you are suffering from severe gastric reflux, where the stomach content pushes up inside the oesophagus, causing your symptoms. Ask your GP for a referral for a gastroscopy and barium meal, in order to have a proper diagnosis made. In the interim, you can use Gaviscon Plus, three times daily before meals. You can continue taking the Nexiam.
