A couple of years ago I was put on anti inflammatory medication, I started feeling sick a lot so I stopped taking them. The sickness just got worse and worse until I couldn't keep any food down and was signed sick off work. After an endoscopy I was told I had gastritis, and followed a strict diet which initially made me better, along with omeprazole and cyclezine (anti sickness) tablets. I was only good for a couple.of.months before symptoms started up again, however now the doctors say it is something other than gastritis. Been for several tests and the specialist decided I just have to much stomach acid and gave me restrictions to my diet. Now I stuck strictly to it for a month and then was supposed to tween.myself back to a normal diet however it didn't help in the first place, I have a few good days then feel crisp again for the majority. I've started taking gaviacon when I feel bad which seems to help a little and still on omeprazole. I am not sick like I used to be but every time I eat I feel bloated, tried, heartburn, like I'm going to throw up (used to be sick every day during/after gastritis) it's driving me insane and ruining my life. Any theories or similar stories would be a great help. I don't think it's stomach acid as I'm not supposed to drink alcohol but when I do I'm fine most the time unless I eat as well, I just don't know what is wrong with me! Please help!
