I'm new to this site and just came in here by serendipity..
Was just reading Rivoretter's post yesterday and felt really good when i read it (the fact that i was able to think my problems might not be really physical had a really good reviving effect on my body). I am trying to get hold of Sarno's book..i hope it might take a while for it to reach me..
I've been having stomach discomfort for the better part of the past 3 months..Have taken 2 endoscopies so far.. both of them said mild gastritis..
I very rarely experience very mild burning sensation in my stomach (its mostly in the stomach area... not in the chest area). But the most embarrasing thing that i feel is the excessive burping and stomach bloating and occasional sensation of nausea ..There's no pain.. nothing.. just plain uncomfort in the stomach...I'm 99% sure extreme stress at work is the cause of my self imposed distress..I'm 25 and i'm in software..
Went to a 3rd Gastro (one regarded as far better than the first 2).. and he says.. this is not ulcer.. but these are symptoms of GERD... And ever since i've been searching frantically on GERD.. some of the sites scared me saying there is no cure available for GERD..(i sincerely dont want to buy all that, because i want to believe i'll get to my fullest fitness and enjoy the wonderful feeling that comes with it)..
Anyone with similar symptoms might like to put a note to me? excessive belching/bloating with occasional nausea and occasional stomach burning?
I still feel so greatful about the thought that most illnesses can be conquered if we put mind over matter... mind over body.. mind over everything...
Appreciate each one of you and your efforts to lead a more fulfilling life...
