I'm glad I found this site as well you all my name is Chiffon I'll be 34 on the 29th. Anyway I was diagnosed officially after a year of terrible nausea and pain in August 2012 with Gastritis and Esophagitis. Up until this year in June I thought it was the gastritis causing the pain. I have been through three doctors due to them not being to treat my pain or refusal to treat my pain. Either way no matter that I've changed insurance companies each time, I still end up with the same GI specialist. He's not paid he just works with the system of step by step and now we've come to the point where I'm past taking everything under the sun from PPIs to pain meds and channel blockers nitrates. I've have 3 upper GIs and this morning I had an esophageal manometry which was horrible so pray you won't need one. I'm hoping to have the surgery soon. My Dr doesn't want to give me pain meds so I suffer through this excruciating pain daily mind you or find a way to self medicate. I can't work or finish school which I fought my way through twice to finish because of this illness and now that I'm done , I can't dare go out on my extern ship like this so I have to wait it out even longer. My bills have piled up and I have no idea what kind of Christmas my daughter will have this year if any. I could care less about cerebrating my birthday I just want her to have a decent christmas and my life back. Thanks for listening and allowing me to vent. I will keep you all updated on the results of the test and I'll be praying for healing for us all through these painful and trying times. God bless.
