I am new to this board and would appreciate any replies. Basically had hpylori back in September. Had esophagitis and they suspected an ucler. Was treated and was confirmed with both an endoscopy and breath test that hpylori was eradicated.
Had extreme anxiety over all this...basically thought I was going to die. Prepared my husband and family for the worse. Could not eat for probably 5 months.
Basically, initially I complained of burning pain in stomach and back. Had a CT scan of abdomen which was normal and had upteen blood tests all ok. By November was starting to get pain in chest (centre). This was dibilitating and basically November through to January had horrible pain in chest.
Was in constant contact & GI specialist...both thought a lot of my symptoms were due to the anxiety. By January I was seeing a counsellor and on some anti-anxiety medication (throughout all this time I have also been on Losec 20mg a day which did absolutely nothing.
I have battled through the anxiety and am now able to eat. Now I am @ the point where I really want to get to the root of this --- what is it? Gerd, motility problem.
Here's my current symptoms - every other day (generally) heaviness in chest (not horrible but uncomfortable) then it moves up to my throat the next day. Burp throughout the day (approximately 25 times). Don't find eating affects it (eg ate ice cream yesterday and fine).
Any suggestions what this could be
