GG-- Hi Im sorta new here too but I am so thankful for my new Friends here! I think we have some of the same problems. I had my gallbladder removed about
8 years ago . I am now having problems with my tummy. I have pain in the left side upper ab area then it seems like a gassy, pressure in my chest and even rotates to my back area. Some days its alllllll day long with no relief, then there are minutes it will hurt and sorta subside then its back withing a few minutes after that. Sometimes it helps to keep food in me, then there are times when it hurts so bad it will take my breath away! I have several nurse friends who think its gastritis and GERD. I had an EGD done in July that did show gastritis and H Pylori. I did the Prev Pac and was relieved a little. Well, now I'm worse than ever! So we are now trying the other with the tetracycline, pepto, flagyl and nexium. I will start it tomorrow. Its very painful and is taking over my life. i hope you get to feeling better soon.
