Can anyone offer any advice - I have had chest pain(retro sternal,and left sided) since january 2000. I have had an endoscopy which revealed gastritis, and have been prescribed pantaprazole 40mg - i have been taking these for 4-5 months now. I have given up smoking, and am on a very restricted diet, as many foods seem to irritate me, and have given up alcohol completely. however, my symptoms do not seem to be getting any better. My GP has been relatively unresponsive, almost dimissive. I have had 4 x ecg's where the pain & discomfort has been so bad that i have been forced to go to a & e on a number of occasions. All ecg,s are normal.
Does anyone else experience this ? Can anyone offer treatment / control of symptom advice ?#
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
