It all started 2 years ago. I had severe stomach pain in the upper abdomen and the doctor treated me with Omeprazole. It subsided and I thought I would be fine.
But then again something else started, Whenever I ate spicy food, I had a severe burning sensation in my chest and stomach.So, I cut down on spicy food.
But then it started to burn for other bland food too. I then treated myself with Rabeprazole and Rantidine. Then everything went away and I felt relieved.
I still occassionally ate spicy food and processed food.
And now, Again, It all came back with more symptoms
I get heartburn and I'm getting these Oesophageal Spasms and slight pain at the end of my food pipe, just below my chest and the starting of the stomach.
I feel like I am getting a burp but they dont come out and sometimes they do come out.
And right after eating I get sour burps with some acid coming back up.
I also occassionally get this spot pain on my upper abdomen, It's focused only on one spot.
Is this symptoms of GERD? Is this self treatable with Ranitidine/Omeprazole? Do I require an Endoscopy?
Please help me decide what to do. I am scared to go to a Gastroenterologist or get an Endoscopy.
