Hi everyone. Sorry if this is a bit long, this is my first and hopefully last discussion that I create.
I have had problems with my stomach and digestion since around September 2015. Started with some acid reflux and bloating feelings occasionaly and then progressed over a few months into daily bloating, trapped wind, strange noises from stomach, pains in abdomen and chest, heartburn and occasional acid reflux. Often I also get a feeling like I will throw up and this is only relieved by forcing myself to burp, or waiting to see if I will burp or throw up.
Been to GP numerous times regarding it, tested for H. Pylori, came back neg. Told to use Gaviscon - relieves acid reflux most of the time but not the bloating, trapped wind and feeling of throwing up. Around April of 2016 was given omeprazole for 4 weeks - this helped if I remember correctly, but I was still using Gaviscon just not as much. When I stopped the course I was fine the symptoms got worse and returned after a few months.
Finally this year my GP refered me for an Upper GI Endoscopy, which I had 2 weeks ago (it wasn't pleasant but needs must). The GI specalist said after that my stomach and upper intestine was all perfect and normal, no signs of cancer, ulcers, hernias, abnormalities or damage etc.
My reflux has been pretty bad the past week possibly due to the doxycylcine I am taking so I am also on Lansoprazole 15MG since Friday which helped yesterday but today I have had bad symptoms again.
I do get IBS like symptoms too but I have been tested for celiac disease which was also negative.
I'm just wondering if anyone has similar indigestion issues with normal endoscopy results and what I can do next?
