Upper left stomach pain I have GERD ulcer and hernia.  Taking nexium (esomeprazole)?

NEXIUM (esomeprazole) =GOOD: I assume you had a 'scope' (an egd) to diagnose the 'ulcer'. An esophageal ulcer (gerd ulcer) and hiatal hernia can be painful conditions. Nexium (esomeprazole) is a powerful acid blocker (ppi) and an excellent choice to treat 'too much stomach acid.' lifestyle changes will also help: cut caffeine, alcohol and smoking.

Acidity: It is likely that you experienced acid rebound after discontinuing the nexium which had shut off your stomachs acid production.
