Hi, I'm new on here and hope to try to understand more about what is happening with my stomach. Im a 55 year old female, dont smoke or drink.
In the last couple of years i've started having bad reactions to certain foods/drink, usually anything with cream or any rich foods.
For the past three months ive had almost constant acid, stomach upset and a weird sensation when swallowing.
Ive been given omeprazole and famotidine, both of which lowered the acid but gave me awful stomach cramps so the doctor said to stop taking them and in two weeks i am going to provide a stool sample to test for HP bacteria. Also ive cut out rich foods, tea/coffee.
Im starting to become very stressed as it feels like its taking forever to get anything done and all communication has been with the doctor on the phone.
My stomach is now constantly mildly upset and i go from being constipated to loose stools and back again.
Also i'm struggling with nausea and discomfort after defecating, as well as after meals.
Any advice would be appreciated. I fell asleep for half an hour earlier and woke up feeling so sick with acid in my throat i felt like going to A&E as it was as though there was a blockage.
Ive had blood tests - all normal.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
