Hello. I am a 20 year old male. about 2 weeks ago i began having intermittent upper abdominal pain. A sort of gnawing pain. once in a while i would experience heartburn as well. I went to see a doc and had both a blood and breath test done both of which came back normal. no h pylori. however the symptoms remained and became more frequent. I went back and was given protonix or protoprezole which has helped in reducing the pain and i have asked to be referred to a specialist a couple of days ago but, as with any public healthcare system, its going to take a while before i even know if im getting an appointment. I reallh want to have an endoscopy done because im terrified that i might have something serious like stomach cancer. Anyone have any advice on how to stay calm or maybe how to quickly get an endoscope done in Canada?
