| | Stomach Problems..... Help
My problems stemmed from 4 years ago (by the way i am 21) i would be playing sport when all of a sudden my throat would start to feel really cold and i couldn't hardly breath. I never thought much about it until slowly but surely i was starting to experience symptoms that me made me worry... i started to feel very acidy in the morning, i would wake up and could taste bile in my mouth (also i was bringing some of it up, yellow/greeny colour with a bad taste & smell), my stomach would be gurgling and i started to belch alot... this slowly got worse, until the doc put on me antacids, small strength (Zantac and stuff u drink) but they didn't seem to work. The doc then put me on zoton 15mg would seemed to work, although i had to have a tablet every day just to get through the day without feeling acidly & crap... As time went on, i was given an endscopoy and they also took a sample of my stomach (BIOPSY), but couldn't find anything... I plodded on taking these tablets, until early last year, the symptoms got worse, they tried me on nexium, 15, 30 and 40 mg tablets, and i am still having big problems even on 40 mg.... They also tried zoton 30 mg but they were no good. In the last 5 months i have lost 2 stone plus as i just cant keep any food down, i am not to bad in morning (although i wake up feeling very acidy and my throat and chest has a burning feeling) or around lunch time, but come 4-5 pm i cant keep anything down, water, tea, milk, softdrinks coffee, food(any type of food, unless very very small quanties) etc. I have so far had 3 endoscopy, ultra sound and berim meal, all showing that my stomach is perfectly normal, i have had the H pyoria test (cant spell : ) ) and they found nothing.... the docs more or less told me that there was nothing wrong with me, which is a pile of crap... I now have an appointment for a balloon to be put into my stomach to test to see if my osesphogues is closing correctly...
I am experiencing: belching, gassy feeling, full feeling (even if i have hardly eaten anything) bad heartburn and bad acid. I look like death warmed up and i am generally going down the nick..
I am @ a stage were i feel crap & look cral, i cant have a drink with my mates and as for spicy food, fatty food etc, well they are completely out of the window...I cant go for a meal with my G/f anymore, and takeaways are out of the window. I also dont smoke and take reg exercise.
If anyone has any suggestions, i would love to hear from u.
I hope you all get yourselves sorted out... Cause i know that it can make your life hell..
