Hi everyone,
I first was diagnosed about 2 1/2 months ago after being wrongly diagnosed for allergies I had to do research myself to tell them but long story short i did endoscopy early when I found out I had it all looked good slight scaring but nothing serious and had h pylori so I took antibiotics for 10 days and prilosec I took 1 only but they said 2 a day.

Anyway after the endoscopy I was always fatigue dry weak dizzy also I was on the low acid diet since before the endoscopy. I went from 256 pounds to 220 in a month after the last few days of my antibiotic treatment I was feeling better than when I finished. about 2 days later I atea simple meal low acid that normally does not bother me and it gave me bad reflux after that day I than became constipated severely bloated all day. Long story short I went to er many times as well as seeing specialist. they took many test and everything come out good. Test include blood, ct scan, ultra sound, X-rays, EKG all comes out fine I was told to take probiotics but it hasn't helped symptoms have gotten worse. Now I don't get as bloated as often but I do get extremely full very fast and the last week it's been very difficult to drink water that is what concerns me. It started with in the morning I would drink water and it gives me reflux on an empty stomach. Now I have to take sips and still makes me very full and bloated. I am now very constipated. Tried taking fiber but not being able to drink as much water makes it useless I have bad and worse days so far. My doctors seem to think its stress and anxiety as the main cause. I feel like if my stomach wasn't so bloated and would get so full so easily my reflux wouldn't be that bad. So I think it's bacteria overgrowth or me failing to elinate the h prylori. But my gi specialist dosent think so. I can't take another stool test until June. The last few nights I've been getting stomach tremors cramps or sharp pains in certain spots and a feeling of burning sometimes in the stomach and sometimes esophagus spasms like chest pains. I have a 24 hr ph and manometry test tomorrow and I am nervous I don't like the fact of having a tube down my throat. I tried to cancel but she says I need to take it. I want to naturally fix this and have tried many things but am not consistent I would try for a few days but I would feel worse and stop I haven't taken ppi or antacid for 3 weeks now I belive but last two days Were not so bad. I realized that I been eating less than 500 calories a day for weeks now and that could be the reason I'm so fatigue everyday I don't know also with so little sleep. I'm mostly venting as well and don't really know if anyone would read this much I'm sorry for being all over. I'm new here there's so much more I want to say but it's just too much. If you do read this please give me your input I would really appreciate it thanks!

Anxiety and over thinking are awful. It might contribute to your problems. Do you take anything for it?

Can you try a liquid or soft diet to see if that helps? I drink a good amount of Ensure.

It's peculiar all those tests found nothing. Stay on top of your doctors like you are.
