I am an 56 year old Male and I have been having issues with a burning stomach for the past 3 years. I had an endoscopy done 3 years ago and it showed my stomach was inflamed, but nothing else showed up. I then had a colonoscopy done 2 years ago and one polyp was found and removed. The polyp was not precancerous.
Since I had gallstones, the dr suggested that my gallbladder may be the cause so I had it removed 4 weeks ago. After the gallbladder removal, I had no stomach issues until yesterday when the burning returned. I also have some mild nausea and feel lightheaded.
The burning pain is mostly on both sides and also the upper abdomen. Sometime I feel it around my belly button. I also experience some bloating at times. Sometimes I have very mild chills and some shaking. Pressing with my hand on the pain spot seems to relieve it somewhat.
No bloody stools, except when my hemorrhoids are painful and irritated.
Any ideas what my next steps should be?
