Question acid reflux

This is the third time I have had this problem in the past 2 years. The first two times I went to emergency room about this , it started out with stomach pain in the upper stomach and then moved to lower stomach the pain was so bad it felt like someone put their hands around my waist, I have vomiting , diarrhea, and rectal bleeding they diagnosed me with a infection and gave me antibiotics kept over night and I have been diagnosed with gastritis does this cause excessive stomach pain?

Re: acid reflux

Gastritis can and does cause a number of symptoms.
When I get a flare up I get pain, alternating diareah and constipation and even shortness of breath.
These symptoms can also be similar to IBS. Have you had an Endoscopy to see what is going on in your stomach and what have you been prescribed,

I have just been experiencing my first flare up I think. I have always been constipated and had diarrhea, but just learned to deal with it. Now, it is like someone has put a corset around my ribs (but worse). I have regurgitation, shortness of breath, am have just started nexium. Planning endoscopy/colonoscopy on Monday. Hopefully will find out something!
