I have an upper endoscopic exam set for Tuesday of next week. I have been having center chest pain and stomach pain with acid reflux. I take Dexilant daily and have cut way back on eating. I feel bad if I don't eat but usually feel worse if I do eat. I am eating very simple meals here also. I know I have a small hiatal hernia from an exam about
five years ago. I feel it is much larger now as my pain has increased much over the last six months. I am now taking Carafate as need and bentyl.
If all this is not bad enough I now have lower abdominal pain, cramping and alternating diarrhea and constipation.
I will need to schedule a colonoscopy after the upper GI scope exam is over. Both upper and lower GI pain hit me at different times most days. All I have is Carafate and bentyl which at times help me make it through the day.
All of this is just to much to take lately. Any suggestions or comments are appreciated.
