Upper stomach burning and gnawing pain
To cut a long story short, I started having stomach burning problems almost 4 years ago and was finally diagnosed with acid reflux and had a nissen fundoplication April 2010. Never really went off nexium, just 5 weeks after the nissen and being off the nexium I started having stomach stabbing pains, and they put me back on nexium. It all seemed to be fine until last November that I have bout of gasteroentritis(dodgy take away, and spicy food), I had horrible gastritis and stomach burning problems, which have really lingered on for the past 10 months. I get hunger pains, terrible sore burning feeling in the upper stomach. I am on 40mg of nexium, and 4 X 10mg of domperidone. They did an endoscopy in March and nothing, prior to that I had an MRI of an upper stomach and that showed nothing as well, has another ph-metry test done in Feb that also came back normal, so now they want to do an stomach emptying test.
I had a chat with the guy who wants to do the stomach emptying and told him that when I try coming off nexium I feel worst and my stomach makes really bad gurgling noises, could I have excess stomach acid, he said the only condition which could cause that in the zillinger-elliion syndrome, which is very rare, so I looked it up, and got so scared unbelievable, it is horrible, basically form of cancer.
Called him back and he said no don't worry if I knew you get concerned I wouldn't have even mentioned it.
Well easier said than done, with all these symptoms and meds which don't give reflief how can I not worry, my question is that, if it was something that bad wouldn't the MRI or an endoscopy had picked it up?
I am so concerned, does anyone else sffer from stomach burning but to reason found for it yet?
so worried!! I have 2 small children, and get really scare. Any reassurance is greatly appreciated.
