for absolutley no obvious reason, I started having really bad episodes of reflux. I woke up one day about 4 weeks ago with agonising stomach pain, but didn't attribute it to reflux. The whole day was spent laid down waiting for it to go. Woke up the next day spitting up yellow saliva with blood - deffinatley reflux. I spent the next week drinking mostly water and eating minimal as well as taking 20mg omeprozol which worked.
A week later, as everything seemed okay - again unexpedatley, I'd eaten nothing but a sandwhich all day - my stomach began swelling up with pain going into my chest. Went to A+E and they suspected appendicitis. After a scan, urine test and blood test, everything came back okay, doctors concluded reflux again.
First few days back from A+E okay - but since the start of this week, symptoms have progressively worsened. Given 40mg Omeprzaol but just not working. Constantly waking up every morning with acid in my mouth with fresh blood, even my teeth hurt because of the acid damage.
Constant stomach ache all day, everytime I spit its fresh blood with acid. My tounge and the back of mouth are stained yellow / green - again clearly its acid but nothing is helping.
I'm at the point now where there's just no point in eating anymore. No one seems to understand what's happening, or why any of this occured for seemingly no reason. Omeprozal doesn't seem to be working at all. I'm living off gavison and water now.
I don't know what to do, I'm depressed, and I'm constantly aware that I'm bleeding and no one can do anything about it. I mention it do the doctors and I get a blank stare or a dismissive response.
This happened about 7 years ago - but that was attributed to my stomach being affected by anti-inflammatory medication. That took 3 months to clear - now I'm back here again and I don't know what to do. I don't know what to say, I don't know where to begin. I can't get advice online other the generic stuff, i.e don't get spicy food etc.
To be honest, I can't eat at all now, and there's no point. My stomach continually hurts, it still occasionally causes chest pain even with omeprozol and gaviscon, and I'm still bleeding. I'm at the end of what I can do or deal with on my own.
