My new GI doctor is sending me for a battery of tests because he "does not understand why I am still having symptoms at my age (29), while on a GERD diet and medication". I guess I am happy that he is thinking outside the box. He is having me tested for Celiac Disease, ordered a Chest X ray and ultra sound of the abdomen, as well as a gastric emptying study. I am starting to get a little nervous that he is sending me to all these tests. I always thought it was just GERD. He also suggested the PH study and Mametry test after these which I know I need. He gave me samples of Dexilant 60mg that I am going to try and Aciphex which I tried years ago. He said he is mainly doing this because my endoscopy only showed mild esoophogitus from reflux and I am reporting difficult symptoms. He said it does not add up.
Anyone have a similar experience? I am trying not to get stressed about this. He is concerned because I have lost a lot of weight because I have been on a strict diet of fruits, vegestables and protein. I am concerned too.
