Anyone else have all these crazy symptoms with their digestive issues?
Hi, I have been sick now since last summer and finally have been diagnosed with hiatal hernia, gastritis and non erosive relfux.. I have all kinda of crazy symptoms, some days I am better then others and I eat very healthy too since all this started so not sure what sets me off. I get chest pains, stomach pains, burning sensations in chest and lower stomach areas, sometimes I have like a dizzy or weird low blood sugar type feeling, my lower back burns at same time as lower stomach... its awful and I am pretty miserbale all the time.. I am also very tired!! I take Dexilant for few months now and some days I feel it helps, others not so sure.. I have given up most everything I used to love to eat and still not really seeing results.. I have an apt with an alternative Dr this month to see about fod allergy/intolerances bc that might be also affecting my ability to get better. Anyway, just wondering if anyone can give me some hope that I will ever get better?? I have spent so much time, money and energy on this and just want to feel good and normal again.. I do not want to have to end up having surgery either but some days I wonder if it would help me I may would agree.. 9 months now of this is getting old!! :(

Re: Anyone else have all these crazy symptoms with their digestive issues?
I have very similar symptoms as you! Especially the weird low blood sugar feelings. What is that all about? I also have found that I have to keep food in my stomach at all times to prevent this blood sugar thing, even in the middle of the night. I am also tired all the time. (mainly because I don't sleep well at night because my stomach just growls all night) I have seen a GI, ran all the tests, they even removed my gall bladder hoping that would didn't. I am having another endoscopy next Wednesday hoping that he might see something this time. I am currently taking Prevacid 30mg daily and have been for 6 months. My main symptoms are: constant nausea, no appetite but hungry, throat hurts and will turn red/raw after talking at work, can't eat: cinnamon, citrus, spicy foods, caffeine, carbonated beverages, alcohol, don't sleep well, tired all the time, weird low blood sugar symptoms. Let me know what your allergist thinks.
