    Acute gastritis, GORD, Any one have same symptoms as me?

    Hi.. I'm Jenny and am wondering if there is anyone experienceing the same symptoms as me.
    Two years ago I was diagnosed with coeliac disease, shortly after going on the gluten free diet I started to experience severe heartburn and indigestion. Doctor gave me Zantac which helped for a while then in the November I was given Pariet tablets to try which I didnt like as they made me very drowsy. I self medicated with zantac and gaviscon as I found doctors unhelpful. By the feb I contacted my specialist who basically gave me a leaflet on reflux and told me to go away and get some diffrent tablets from my doctor. He gave me omeprozole which didnt help much. It continued to get worse so in July I went back and was given yet some more tablets, Zoton. They seemed to help and I felt a lot better. When I went back to get some more my doctor reduced the amount to 15mg a day and thats when it got bad. Two week later I developed this lump feeling in my throat, although I knew it wasnt a lump as such because I could still swallow however it made my life miserable its like having a bolied sweet. Another visit to the docs, I'm sure they think I am a hypochondriac.... was told I will have to have an endoscopy, six months I would have to wait. Was told to take gaviscon and zantac if I needed to as well as the zoton. This doesn't help... I have chest pain constantly, feel bloated most of the time, have lost my appetite and have drooped 8 inches from my waist alone and I feel rubbish all the time. Then last month I ended up in A & E with what the doctor said was acute gastritis after having to stop my zoton so I could have the H Pylori breath test. I was also taking larges doses of antibiotics as I had a severe tooth infection at the time as which I also had to stop taking because they gave me severe chest pain and I couln't tolerate them because my stomach was too sensitive. Was told too increase the zoton to 60mg a day and zantac 150mg twice a day and use gaviscon, not to mention the painkillers to help with the pain. I would like to know if any one else has felt really lethargic while taking zoton, i get nausea but I can deal with that. I also still suffer with bad indigestion feel like I have a lot of air stuck which will not shift, I have good days and bad, I get upper stomach pain which also makes me feel like I am hungry, it goes away for a while if I eat but comes back. The worse thing is I am actually frightened of food, what if it sets it off,, cos I will be in agony for hours.. severe chest pain and bloating and nothing relieves it. I am so fed up with feeling like this .... does anyone know if there is help and can you be cured? I would appreciate anyones comments.
