Since just before Christmas I've had constant severe stomach pain and a starving hunger that won't subside no matter how much I eat. went to the doctors very quickly and they said I had acid reflux and gave me 20mg of omeprazole. took for 4 weeks and the symptoms didn't go. had blood and stool tests all came back fine. was then put on 40mg of omeprazole and 300mg of ranitidine daily. I have been taking them for 6 weeks and though my pain is not as severe it is still hurting so much I cannot sleep. however the doctor just said since I'm not vomiting blood or losing weight there is no reason to be worried so to keep taking the pills for 3 more months. I am in constant pain still, I can never sleep which means I'm very behind on my uni work, I cry in pain every night, I just don't know what to do. I am 21 and have given up caffeine and alcohol as I found these make the symptoms way worse than they already are.
