Hi can anyone relate to my problem? Last year I suffered terribly from March to September- the issue then was severe throat pain with earache and heartburn. I eventually had upper endoscopy which revealed acid reflux, bile in stomach and gastritis. I have taken various PPIs since then and Gaviscon Advance. I also had an abdominal ultrasound which didn't reveal any problems. I was managing really well until 6 weeks ago when stabbing pain in right rib area started - it is intermittent and sometimes progresses to full on burning in my mid section. I eat well, sleep well but the pain is there as soon as I rise in the morning and start moving about. I have bouts of nausea which is also intermittent. My GP says she is not concerned and I don't need further tests - she has changed PPI again and increased the dose. I am a worrier and am freaking out that this is something serious - I google symptoms a lot which doesn't help I know - but these symptoms are new to me and I can't help worrying I am 62 and female by the way. This site has helped me a lot - any similar experiences would be appreciated,
