Hello, this might quite be long but please, I need someones help about acid reflux. I am currently 18 years old. I started drinking coffee or tea everyday at school for half a year and stopped. Nothing really happens at first then in march, I started drinking alcohol and a week later my stomach started to hurt. I went to a doctor and he said its probably just a normal stomach ache and gave me some medicine. It didn't really help.
A month later, I drank some alcohol at a party and soon three or four days later my stomach has gotten a lot worst. I had diarrhea for one and a half day and couldn't even get out of bed. I had to stay in bed for two whole days without eating (i felt like throwing up) so i went to another hospital. This time they told me I had acid re flux or too much acid in my stomach. They gave me medicine and it helped for a month. But sometimes I would still get stomach ache but didn't really mind. Until this month (June) it had gotten a lot worse, I had chest pains, coughing, irregular bowel movement (sometime diarrhea sometime normal) and shortness of breath.
In my country, we don't have endoscopy(??) (because the technology in our country is not advance) so I would have to go to other country like Thailand in order to actually know what is happening to my stomach or going on in my stomach.
I know that these symptoms come back every time I vape or drink alcohol so i stop everything. I try natural remedies and try to avoid food that are acidic (i only eat fruits now). I am even too scare to eat. My depression is really bad that I don't even go out of my room or communicate anymore. I just lock myself in my room and think about acid re flux or cancer or how I'm going to die soon.
Can someone please please help me. I am really desperate for an answer or solution.
Please anything at all. Sorry for this long post of grammatical or spelling mistakes as I am writing this post with bad anxiety.
