Im new to this forum and was hoping either others were having the same problems as me or for any advice.
Ive had ongoing reflux for over 10 years plus a sliding hiatal hernia. Have been on PPIs for over 10 years which have been effective at dealing with reflux symptoms.
3 months ago started to have a nagging pain in left upper stomach. It got slowly worse and has now been there 24/7 for over 3 months. After 6 weeks I thought id better see the GP. Was given bloods and stool tests - all negative. Was referred for routine gastroscopy and ultrasound. Have not had either yet. Hopefullly they will show what is wrong and I hope nothing too serious.
I was looking for a little reassurance I guess to see if others are having similar issues. Currently the pain is in the left side and feels sore, gnawing and a bit like continuous stitch. It does ease a little when walking. It doesnt seem affected by what I eat. No nausea or vomiting. It radiates to my back, generally the lower back. It is impacting on my life and basically getting me down both with the continually pain which never stops and the worry about what might be causing it. I have since managed to get my scope status raised to urgent which I hope might speed that process up.
Any advice welcome !
