Upper abdominal heaviness
I am hoping someone could tell your experience if simmilar to mine. Two months ago all of a suden I got this pain in the middle of my upper abdomen radiating to the right side and sometimes the left, it felt as if someone had kicked me right there, my heart was racing, felt like food was stuck in my throat but no difficulty swalloging, regurgitation but no acid reflux. I went to the ER thinking it was my heart but the EKG was normal they gave me antiacids and sent me home. I took Pepto Bismol with no relief so I went to my Dr. She prescribed Nexium 40g, it took almost 3 weeks to start feeling a bit better, now I've been on Nexium for 5 weeks the awful pain and the other symptoms are gone but I have a feeling of heaviness on my left upper abdomen with a bit of achy pain that comes and goes even my ribs feel tender some days, I am losing weight too, I think is due to diet changes, stress or I've heard that Nexium can make you either gain or lose weight not sure if that is true. I am schedule to have an endoscopy and colonoscopy the same day but it is a month from now, I am a bit worry now that I am losing weight but just wondering if anyone has experienced something similar, I am thinking that it could be a hiatal hernia since I have this feeling of discomfort in my upper abdomen but bad thoughts come to my head and think it could be something a lot worse. I'd appreciate if anyone would share his/her experience and if endoscopy or colonoscopy shed any light on what caused your problem?
Thanks in advance
