In June 2012 I started experiencing heartburn and stomach problems. The doctors thought it was acid reflux and put me on omeprazole which didn't help much if at all. No medication helped and it got progressively worse. Tests showed my lower eosophagal sphincter isn't working properly but that I also had a gallstone. about 2 months ago I had my gallbladder removed which at first gave a small improvement, but it is starting to get worse again. I am currently on zirid and proursan but am still getting worse. I recently did a barium swallow which revealed I should be getting mild acid reflux but it doesn't feel like it. All endoscopies came back clear, no inflammation.
My day now goes like this. Get up, bad taste in mouth and burning stomach, eat something bad taste fluctuates, I burp ALOT burn subsides for a few minutes, then burn comes back. And so forth all day every day for the past 3-4 weeks. One doctor has suggested the bad taste is bile and that will go with time. But nothing seems to be changing. I can at least sleep without it interfering but this just leaves me wishing the days away, which is no way to live.
I'm writing to ask if anybody has experienced this and has any positive advice. Although my pain isn't terrible it is constant and ruining my life. I need to know things can improve. Please help.
