Yes, I have gastritus. Don't worry about the after pains, they are not that bad, just a bit uncomfortable as its something you have not felt before, I'm much better today. I recommend you have the injection when you have it, as it wasn't very pleasent at all just having the spray on its own. Good luck.
Yes, thank you! Feel free to private message me. I am very cautious on taking any sleep meds as I know how addictive they are, but I want them on hand just in case.
Hopefully I will never need them though. Like I mentioned, all of a sudden, two weeks into taking my "acid blockers" I am sleeping very well. It makes sense it is the GERD and/or the H. Pylori I have in my stomach. My GI specialist told me, after my endoscopy, that my stomach was just "full" of acid. Ewwww...!
Thanks again, and any tips you can give me will be greatly appreciated!
Hi, yes I am on 30 mg prevecid after my endoscopy, and told to take gaviscon at night. I did not have the pain I am having now before the test. I really think something was damaged during the test. The doctor just wants to give me pain killers. But that will only mask the pain and not cure whatever the problem is. I did go for a CT scan today of the chest. But won't get results for a couple days. My pain is so bad, I am tired of not being able to eat. I have to open the prevecid and put it in applesauce, since I can no longer swallow pills. I have never had this trouble after a test, and don't know anyone who has. It hurts really bad at the lower part of the neck where it meets the ribcage. I think the doctor must have been really rough, but now he doesn't want to know anything about it. I found this site and was really hoping that maybe someone has heard of something like this. It has been over a month since the test. Results were a small hiatial hernia. Any help is appreciated.
AnnR and Ste.
How are you guys feeling now? Has the pain subsided for both of you yet? I feel so terrible that you guys had a procedure to make yourselves better, and here you are feeling worse! Something is wrong with that picture.
Since my colonoscopy and endoscopy, my GERD is somewhat better, not wonderful, but better. I am on a PPI and so that must be helping, but still have 4 repeats left if need be, and I know I will be getting at least one repeat. The non sleeping is better as well, so far, cross my fingers.
Just wanted to know if you both were feeling better yet.
Thanks, sorry I haven't been able to get back for a while. I have been through so many tests. after the ct they found abnormal lymph nodes, so i just went for an mri. There may be an infection going through my body since the tests. I still have lots of pain, which was not there before the tests. Can't figure this one out.
