I have been diagnosed with IBD, but the doc isnt sure if its Crohns or UC. Anyhow.. when I started having problems with my bowels, I also had what I thought was heartburn. I was put on Nexium, and I felt good until about
1 1/2 month later. I had a slight burning sensation in my throat and burning sensation between my ribs. After about
2 months the doctor took me off the nexium, since I was schedueled for that real fun tube test :)
Well... they found nothing wrong in my stomach or in my small intestine, but I still have the burning feeling between my ribs.
I can't see any pattern either. It starts after getting out of bed and moving around in the morning. It doesnt matter if I eat or drink. It goes away for short periods during the day and comes back at night time. It does not disturb my sleep at night.
Oh.. I am hungry ALOT, I have a coated tounge (not fungus) in the morning and I do experience bad breath.
