Hi, I am new to the site but I have come here to try and get some answers.
about one year ago I came down with a case of severe heartburn. I had slight cases before that, that went away. I went to my doctor and he put me on Nexium and it did not even touch the pain. He then sent to have the scope done.
The results of the scope was I had inflammation in the esophagus, gastrities in the stomach and inflammation in the upper part of the small intestine. I was then statred on Kapidex, librax and Carafate suspension.
The pain I have is right below the breastbone and under the right rib cage that radiates to my back. All gallblader test have come back ok along with a battery of other test on my intestines, a ct scan of my chest, and test on my heart.
I have been on all three medications now for over six months and it only knocks the pain down to a dull sensation.
My doctor has told me to take a vacation and that is it. Does anybody have the same type of problems and where do you go from here.
