Multifactorial: PPIs e.g. Lansoprazole make the stomach feel better by preventive the mechanism of acid production; however, there are a variety of reasons for the symptoms. Usually, when associated with fever/chill-like feeling, it could be an infection. Therefore, it is best to get this thoroughly checked.
