So, for almost 7 months now I've been dealing with this and still having issues.
It all started with popping/punching feelings in the upper middle abdomen, went ot ER they said it's not cardiac.. told me to drink magnesium citrate to clear out. Did that, but that's where things got worse, after that had diarrhea that would not go away and bad stomach pains in the upper middle abdomen that went away with food. Doc put me on Dexilant for a few weeks, seemed to help for a little. Then had other issues and got moved to prevacid for 12 days, then nothing and nothing got better.
Four months later finally got an upper endoscopy done and got diagnosed with Duodenitis, Gastritis and a sliding hital hernia (unsure of the size). Doctor put me on Omeprazole 40mg (morning, was slowly phased off after a month of it) and Ranitidine (Zantac at night) 300mg each day after two months of this my stomach pain went away. Problem is now I'm done with that and stomach pain is still gone but now I have other issues back..
1) Diarrhea returned slowly a week after getting off zantac
2) Tension type head aches and feeling off balance started up after going off the zantac. Tylenol helps a tiny bit with but not completey
3) Sometimes I can feel my heart beating in my stomach where I used to have the pain, just randomly I will feel it usually after I eat lunch though, never had this issue before this whole thing started.
It felt like someone was squeezing my head from the sides, and i felt like I was falling backwards or walking tilted when standing up and walking.
The Diarrhea started with softer stool, then progressed to what today has been almost pure water.
During the diagnosis I did have a complete abdominal ulltrasound done, they saw nothing of interest with my pancreas, liver, stomach, kidneys, gallbladder, or aorta / IVC. Ontop of that CBC blood test came back normal, and metabolic profile / lipase came back normal.
Any advice? Maybe the original issue isn't completely cured yet?
