Been reading the forum for a while now but have just decided to post so here goes. I am 43 years old, not overweight at 14 stone. stopped drinking coffee, never eat anything fried, wholegrain bread only. Hardly ever drink alchohol. no loss of appetite.
I started 3 years ago with sore throat symptoms so went to the doctors here in the UK where i was diagnosed with acid reflux. After a dose of PPi it seemed to settle down for a while but then came back where upon I went for an down the throat endoscopy which was found to be all clear. Symptoms kept coming and going with different ppi tried including ranidine, and esomeprozole.
Beginning of this year the symptoms became persistent and included a dull pain in the right hand side below the ribs, sore throat and a yellow coated tongue, various stitches around my stomach area, loose stool but as usual (once per day) aching arms, feeling tired and un-motivated. I find sleeping fine.
symptoms vary from day to day, so days are good, some bad. I have found scrubbing my tongue of the yellowness relieves the sore throat as does gargling with listerine.
I had another endoscopy in feb 13 and a sample taken to check for heli-bac, as well as a ultra sound, all was all clear. I also tend to ache alot when i get up from bed for about half an hour till i get moving about abit.
Just been recently back to the doctor and had various blood tests done incl liver and kidney, pancreas function tests, all ok but was found to be borderline diabetic (level 43).
I am currently on 40mg esomperozole a day but its not doing alot. I am at my wits end, does anyone else have these sort of symtoms and had any success
