Hello, im looking to see if there is anyone out there whom has experienced similar symptoms as myself.
Several weeks ago i started experiencing severe anxiety which im not new to. ive dealt with it on and off for 20 years.. ive been diagnosed with GERD over 2 years ago. i take oemeprozole 20mg as needed which has always done wonders for me.
During my extreme anxiety i noticed my acid reflux symptoms were seriously flaring up, and my medication was not helping me. i saw my pcp to get on anxiety meds and we both figured once my anxiety was under control my acid reflux would subsude.. well my anxiety is well controlled now but i still have constant acid reflux.
i ended up calling my gastro doctor because i was so miserable with this constant acid reflux discomfort. she told me its likely my anxiety that stirred things up, plus i had bronchitis weeks prior to this happening and she said it was a combination of the antibiotics, steroids and anxiety that made my system out of whack. she told me to double up on my gerd meds and eat a bland diet for two weeks. it has been 4 weeks since that appt. and i have no change. i called the gastro office this past monday in tears saying how awful i felt, the nurse asked if i had mu gallbladder checked, i said no, she said my symptoms could be coming from that. i get a slight achy feeling between my shoulder blades but from what i heard gallbladder pain is intense. im getting an ultrasound done this weekend but im confused is to whether or not this is my gallbladder. Has anyone had any similar problems that they were able to diagnose and fix?
