Today marks one month and a half that i've been suffering with burning in my stomach... this is how it all started:
Early in the morning i stopped by a gas station to grab my regular decaf coffee. To my surprise they had ran out, they had regular caffeine coffee so i took that one. 20-30 mins. After drinking it i started having that burning sensation on the upper part of my stomach. At first i didnt take much importance and i just grabbed some nexium from walgreens but few days passed by and no effect. I scheduled an appointment with the doctor and i got tested for H pylori and it came back negative. That time i was prescribe pepcid 20mg (twice a day) it kinda help but it didnt take the full pain away. Week later i missed work and ended up going to the ER. They really suck at their job they kept me there for so long just to tell me they though i had an duonal ulcer and was given omeprazole and sucralfate. Omeprazole would cause it to irritate more i felt so i went back to pepcid 20mg. I did started taking the sucralfate for protection of my stomach linning. 2 weeks later i made another appt to see a different doctor . They ran a CT scan and blood work, everything came back positive. No i have a follow up appt. coming up on the 13th of this month to see if i improved or worsen. I think i slighty improved but eating bread and large meals triggers it real bad. Never had bloddy stools or vomited. Have had a few ocassions when i feel a bit nauseas but no vomiting. I think next step with the doc will be ask for an endoscopy. But im aiming more to gastritis because of my symthoms. Can anyone relate to my experience so far? And if you have what was it and how you solved it? Please help!
