 3  GERD Joint and muscle pain in my hands, arms and knees which was worse the first few days but has subsided some. I also feel weak and have less energy. Some nausea, headaches and a spaced-out feeling which seems to be worse in the mornings but persists throughout the day. My appetite has been unaffected. I feel more bloated after eating than usual so I'm trying to eat smaller meals. This has definitely helped with the GERD. I'm taking 40mg 1x daily but I may cut it back to every other day or reduce the dosage to 20mg. I'm not sure the side effects are worth it. M 45 7 days

 4  GERD The side effects have subsided although I still feel a slight amount of joint pain but nothing like those first few days. Occasional dizzy feeling but again it's minimal. My reflux has improved considerably partly because I've improved my eating habits but I know the drug has helped a lot too. I'm sleeping better and no more heartburn. I still feel bloated initially if I eat too much but I'm considering this a positive (I'm not overeating as often) I'm changing my rating from a 3 to a 4 because of all this. M 45 14 days
