My stomach is always bothering me

I have gone to many different doctors and have done every test there is to see if there is anything wrong with my stomach. All of the test results have come out fine. The last test I took they said that I have GERD and also I have bad anxiety so I know that is also contributing to my stomach problems. It is really getting to the point that I can not deal with it anymore it has been going on for eight years now and I am so sick and tired of taking tests and seeing doctors and it seems that none of them know what is going on and no medication is helping me. I really need some other answers and I do not know where to get them anymore.

Re: My stomach is always bothering me

Hey Vanessa, i can totally relate to your frustration. I have dealt with ibs for over 25 years, and they still don't find anything "wrong" with me. I've had so many test done, and all they come up with is i have gerd, haital hernia, and i had many colon polyps which they removed. I've had 2 coloscopies done, endoscopy, stomach emptying test, breath test, celiac test, fructose test, and more that i can't even remember, so i know what you're going through. It's hard to deal with it, especially when you know there is something not right. I have high anxiety also, and that just makes it all worse. I don't know what to tell you except keep searching for answers. That's what i'm doing, i have another appt. with a bigger hospital next week. I'm hoping for the best. I have just learned to manage or deal with the symptoms i get and just keep praying that one day they will find out what causes it. And hope for a cure, or at least some kind of medication that will help with my symptoms. I hope you find an answer too, and let me know if i can help you in any way.
