I go back to the gastroentologist on Tuesday. I know I need to ask for the endoscopy cause my general doctor told me to. But I need to know what the connection is between this gerd problem and my bowels. I know if I get bad gas or start cramping or constipated or whatever, my gerd will be worse that day.
Also, I have sinus like symptoms when my gerd is the worst. Like my nose burns and my sinuses drain. It is very uncomfortable.
Also, the blasted chest pains...which usually get better if I eat.
My thing is the doctor will look at me and chalk it all up to being a woman if I give him all my symptoms. Know what I mean? He laughed at me last time I went to him cause I told him I had chest pain. He actually said it could not be gerd and sent me back to my doctor for an ekg. My doctor did it but the whole time he was telling me the other doctor was basically wrong for suggesting gerd and chest pain don't go together. I live in a very small town and this specialist is my only option.
So....anyone know the stomach/sinus/gerd connection?
I go on Tuesday. Thanks for your responses in advance!!
