I am a 34 yr old female. I have ulcerative colitis that has been in remission for 1 yr. I have recently been diagnosed with reflux.
Taking 80 mg of nexium a day and still having a pain in chest and also back. I have started having headaches that are diagnosed as tmj or tension related. A bulging disc was discovered on an mri last week. I am concerned that the pain has not stopped after taking nexium for a month. What steps should I take next? Test for reflux - barium x-ray.

The next step would be to contact your doctor and let him know you are not responding. Based on his assessment of your condition he may order an endoscopy.
