hello there, I just wan to share my problem I've been having burning pain in my upper stomach,I burped all the time,stomach is noisy everyday and most of all I have a terrible dry throat as well and dry throat is terrible at night and it make me wake up in the middle of the night and sometimes I feel like the food I'm eating is just stocked in my stomach not been digested well even liquids like water.feels like my stomach is producing too much acid,and sometimes if I pressed my stomach feels like I can feel small lumps and sometime they hurt too..last month I went to the doctors and told her my symptoms she Said it's just acid and need to take gaviscon,after 10 days of gaviscon it didn't helped went to see the doctor again and she gave me landzoprazole coz she thought it's inflammation of stomach lining after 3 weeks of taking landzoprazole it still didn't helped me and one night I was rushed to the hospital because of severe stomach pain upper part.they did some blood test to check my liver,kidney and gallbladder but all came out normal.the doctor in the hospital suggested that I should have endoscopy coz he think the problem is in my stomach. I've been stressed and scared for months now coz all I did was to spend days and hours in Google and it's just telling me I have a serious disease.So went back to my doctor who gave landzoprazole and told her I was rushed to the hospital and landzoprazole is not helping me either and that the doctor in the hospital said I need to have endoscopy.She changed landzoprazole to Ranitidine and she suggested I should have a stool exam first for H pylori, Again I Went to Google and read some things about H pylori and and it says one of the major cause of stomach cancer.this is stressing and making me scared even more coz I think I also have the symptoms of it.need to wait 2 weeks for my stool exam and a month for my endoscopy appointment,the waiting time is killing me ang making me stress even more. This dry throat I'm feeling now is scaring me too coz I read as well that too much acid will damage your esophagus and may cause aesophageal cancer..It's all in my head now that I have serious illness.This been making me Cry and worried everyday for the last 2 months.I dont enjoy things anymore,sometimes I just want to be alone and don't want to talk to anybody.My husband did his best to lessen my worries but it's not helping me.I want my normal life again I just got married last March and just starting a family.But instead of being happy This things making me down and emotional everyday.Anybody with the same experience I will appreciate it if you tell me about your experience and how you coped up with it.
