Had my upper endo today. Was told that no h pylori, ulcers, or cancer. No GERD but there is mild erythema in the whole stomach. He doesn't know what is causing this but said it could be an overproduction of bile. He did take a biopsy. I have researched erythema and found this is an inflamation and my stomach definitely feels inflamed. I was still groggy when he was talking to me and I forgot to ask if stress could cause this. I have been under extreme stress for 4 years and I believe my body is finally saying enough is enough.
I had a sense from my visit yesterday and talking to the doc today that he thinks this is in "my head" well no it is in my stomach. I never understand why a doctor would think that someone would want to hurt.
I think I am going to start researching a diet for an inflammed stomach. I really don't want to take any more meds. I currently take meds for high blood pressure, high cholesterol and low thyroid. In addition to a b12 shot monthly for pernicious anemia. I need to lose weight so maybe this will be the incentitive that I need to lose the weight.
