Hi, I'm so stressed out from my condition, any ideas you have would be really appreciated!
Basically 2 months ago I had constant severe sharp pains that were concentrated in my stomach and lasted about a week. I had an endoscopy and ultrasound and was told that it was normal apart from excess bile in my stomach and was prescribed nexium which calmed things a little but didn't completely solve it.
Since then I have suffering with an ongoing burning sensation in my chest to my lower abdomen, I'm constantly bloated and always belching. I have seen 2 different doctors since the endoscopy and have been told that it is most likely GERD and have been prescribed more nexium. I am not overweight, I'm 26, I live a healthy lifestyle- no caffeine, alcohol, smoking and have given up dairy, spicy food and sugar in the last few weeks to see if that would help. The symptoms haven't eased at all and I just don't know what to do next. I'm waking up crying most days because it's so uncomfortable and it only eases for a few hours a day. I'm a teacher and I'm becoming irritable with my students and colleagues.
