I have had stomach problems for the past five years. I had an endoscopy about
5 years ago and was diagnosed with gastritis and LPR.
Every few months I get a loss of appetite that lasts about
a week. My only other symptom is mild constipation.
I know I probably should go to a docotor, but I don't want to get an endoscopy, which the doctor is going to always need, unless I really need it.
At what point should I be concerned and get an endoscopy.
Is frequent loss of appetite a symptom that is going to be chronic for someone with stomach problems that doesn't need a doctor's attention?
