I started having heartburn problems in 2013 after Bihar taken anti flam pills for tennis elbow. Due to my shifts i took them at the wrong time and without food. I was diagnosed with acid reflux. I was put on omprezole and it stopped it. I sometimes only took them for 3 to 4 days then stopped. I had no probs until I felt a burning sensation at the entrance to my stomach when taking a hot drink of tea. I started taking them again and it disappeared. In 2017 I asked the doctor if the acid reflux was damaging my esophagus. The doctor said she would test for the bacterial bug. I came off omprezole for three weeks before the stool test. I was fine no heart burn or reflux. I tested positive for the bug. I had a week of antibiotics plus omprazole. I had no problems. When I finished the course the next day I had heartburn. I kept a diary for the next 30 days. I had 10 days of HB. I am now on lansoprazole after seeing my doctor. I'm still getting HB. I do drink beer on a reg basis. Not a lot

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Pain killer pills for tennis elbow likely caused NSAIDs induced gastritis and leads to such discomfort. Stop NSAIDs, modify diet lifestyle and use home remedies for GERD. Visit our GERD health center for further guidance.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
