I am an Italian girl,named Martina,33 years old.Sorry if my English is not very good
I have been having stomach's diseas since I was a child.Doctors thought it was a psychologic problem as many doctors actually think,but the situation got worse in the years,then when I was 19 I made my first endoscopy:I had a strong gastritis.Meds did not help me,so they gave me antidepressant drugs...then I make in the years other 5 endoscopies...in the last 4 they saw a light chronic gastritis and a small jatal hernia,a lot of polyps(they said beacause of the long years of PPI).
My GI said(and still says)I should make a ph meter and manometry exam but I'm terrified and too anxious to do it,so I haven't yet done it!!!
Sometimes when I feel worse I really think to a surgery,but I don't Know if it really works well...after reading your histories and experiences especially!!!HELP!!!
I use PPI but without any help,they are like "water"for me...as all the other meds for stomach trouble...I don't Know what to do...I think that I born and I will die with my stomach disease!!!
Please sorry again if I don't write well...I hope you understood me a bit
