Hi all. I've been having presumed dyspepsia symptoms since last September. I started to occassionally get burning chest pains into my throat. The discomfort starts under my left breast and goes under my ribs and then up into my chest. I don't get it at night. I get sore throats a lot and I can feel my dinner coming up when I do upside down poses in yoga (2-3 times a week).
Saw my GP who did an h. Pylori stool test- negative and a bunch of bloods which were normal. Took Omeprazole for a month with no difference.
More recently I have had the chest discomfort most days for the last 6 weeks- lots of burping, yellower stools. The discomfort is relieved for a short time by Rennies. I have quit tomatoes, tea, chocolate and wine and have seen an improvement in symptoms.
GP has now put me on Lansoprazole (Day 1 today) but I've been bad today after going to a spicy barbeque 2 days ago 😦
Any tips? And does this sound like GERD? I rarely get the burn just the left breast, and retrosternal discomfort.
Oh, I am a 43 yr old. Female, healthy weight and active.
