Hey everyone. I am new to this. So maybe someone can help me out? I'm really confused on what is going on. Here lately I have been having these weird symptoms. I am always nauseated but never throw up. Like my tummy feels like it's all in knots. Also burping alot and sometimes it feels like it's hard to get a burp out. And sometimes when I burp I will burp up acidy stuff. My tummy is 24/7 bloated and I cough alot. I have some chest pain but not too much. It also feels like there is something stuck in my throat and a little bit of pressure on my collarbone?? Weird thing too is that my back hurts and I feel tired most of the time. I'm scared to eat because I get sick everytime I eat no matter what it is. And my ribs hurt too? I have been to the doctor and they gave me chest X-Ray and it was fine. They took my blood. It was fine...the doctor gave me something I think it's called Omeprazole? I think thats how you spell it. Because he "thinks" I have acid reflux. Ok, I'm sorry, but how can a doctor "think" you have acid reflux? Shouldn't they "know"? AHHHHHHHH! I get soooo frustrated with doctors. Anyway, I haven't taking to medication yet because I have to pick it up. Maybe it will help? Anyone else have these weird symptoms? I'm not sure what it is just want it gone! Anyone help me please I'm way frusrated with this can upset and scared.

Reason: forgot to add something
Sounds like acid reflux.. but just to throw another suggestion out there...
I shared some of your symptoms growing up and I always just thought I was "having a bad day" or it was period related or just a "blah day" turns out that I had a food allergy.. Celiac Disease.
I was always nauseated after eating, felt like I had rocks in my stomach, was bloated, and gassy (how embarrassing!) constant headaches, tired ALL the time, withdrawn, pale, problems in the bathroom, aching/cramping/pain in my abdomen and lower back and sometimes my ribs would feel like they were bruised.
If this sounds anything like you then do a quick search on Celiac disease/Gluten Intolerance and do some reading. You can also try cutting gluten out of your diet for a couple days/weeks and see if anything improves.
