I'm at my whits end. I've had scans and h.poly test nothing turned up. My doctors solution is to give me generic advice, the main one obviously to stop smoking which ive done but symptoms are just getting worse. I've been living off absolute basic food but its just getting out of control, 20mg omeporzol is doing absolutely nothing. I'm literally eating double strenght gaviscon throughout the day.
Sleeping is the worse. I wake up with acid in my mouth, my teeth feel like their about to drop out and my mouth feels like razor blades. Its getting worse in the sense that throughout the day all i can taste is acid in my mouth, its not even heartburn anymore. its in my mouth, on my tounge and even my lips, constant burning.
My girlfriend kissed me today, and recoiled in disgust when she said she could actually taste blood and acid. I can't concentrate at work, I don't know what to eat, what to drink, all I can think of is "just avoid everything" It's getting to the point where there's no point even eating anymore.
Is there any point in going back to the doctors when all I'll get is "here have some more omeprozol" and the usual rubbish "avoid spicy and acidic food"
I'm 30 years old. 30. And all my friends and everyone else I see's eats, drinks and smokes whatever but I can hardly touch a thing. The doctors can't give me a reason for this - no obvious reason why this started in the first place and its slowly getting more and more out of control. 2 months now, and at this point all I keep thinking about is when I'm going to get cancer. I daren't sleep, I daren't eat, I give up. I feel depressed because no one listens, and it feels like no one can help at all.
Ya know, I've wanted to propose to my girlfriend, I want to start a family with her, but all I can think of is "whats the point when I'll probably be found dead in the morning one day in a pool of blood acid and vomit"
