I took my records to a new gastro. I was hoping to see. His nurse just called me and wanted to know why I left my other dr. and to let me know he didn't think there was anything else he could do for me, said I should look into going to one of the educational hospitals. I am surprised that a dr. wouldn't even see you in his office and just turn you away.
In the meantime my throat is so sore from relfux, my stomach hurts and my head is killing me. I did call the ent that recommended the PH test and see him in July. And to make things worse I have to have a sebacous cyst that nees to be removed in August and can't lift anything heavy for two weeks cause I will have stitches in my back.
Sorry for the pity party. My head hurts so bad and I can't take anything cause of my stomach. My stomach hurts and I have no one to help me.
One question....does anyone hurt in their upper stomach? Could it be gerd?
Hi there sorry to hear you're feeling so poorly, I too have had all your symptoms plus more. Are you on ppi's ? some ppi's can actually cause stomach pain and headaches. My headaches got worse when I was on Nexium ( plus I put on over 10lb) it might be worth changing to a lower dose ppi, I'm on 15mg of Lansoprazole a day and that has been more effective than any of the others which were 40mg per day. I personally can't tolerate a high dose of ppi I get a lot of side effects. If you want to know your PH balance you could always by some litmus paper, that's how I found out what my PH was... which is around 7 now. I had next to no help from my Doc at all, I worked things out for myself and got some great advice from other people on here that have been through what I was experiencing. By the way, have you had any tests for allergies or celiac disease? that could also be causing tummy aches and headaches. Hope you feel better soon.
