Exclamation Really scared. Please help.

I don't know if I actually have GERD or something even more serious. I'm constantly burping, feeling food AND drink come back up (even though I only ate/drank a few minutes ago!). It's definitely drink as well, because if I drink a cold drink, I can feel coldness rising up in the back of my throat, and if I drink a hot drink, I feel hotness rising up in the back of my throat. This doesn't happen EVERY day and all day. But it seems to be happening VERY often. Some days I am fine and it doesn't happen at all. I also get terrible nausea during these periods.

I have taken almost EVERY PPI/Acid reducer and nothing works. I am seeing a specialist at the hospital and they think just because I am 'young', I won't have anything wrong with me. They said I may have a hiatus hernia, and I have a check-up appointment in September. They didn't even perform the endoscopy in May which is annoying, as I could have found out what is wrong by now.

I'm constantly thinking that I have stomach/esophageal cancer, because I have heard that bringing up food AND drink is a major symptom of it... Please help me.

Re: Really scared. Please help.

hiya

first thing you need to do is try and calm down a bit I know it's not easy but if you have got a hiatus hernia or reflux the worst thing for either off those is stress that will make it ten times worse believe me I know

do not drink coffee or any fizzy drinks

also keep away from chocolate and spicy foods

also try and minimize how much bending and heavy lifting you do

have you raised your headboard ? if not that needs to be done
