I would like to share my story with all of you; in hopes of maybe finding some helpful advice. I am a 24 year old female who has been experiencing a variety of stomach issues for the past 8 months. I was experiencing extreme nausea after eating, heartburn, belching, bloating, and black stool. Around the 4/5 month mark, I had an upper endoscopy and was diagnosed with gastritis. The doctor took biopsies and was able to rule out Celiac's disease, cancer, and H. pylori. I was prescribed omerprazole 40 mg and sucralfate. After taking these medications consistently for about two months straight, I haven't seen any improvement and symptoms seem to be getting worse. Now, my symptoms include tenderness/sharp pain where the stomach is located, pain radiating to the back, extreme nausea/bloating after eating, loss of appetite (there are also some days where I don't eat much just to avoid the pain), and constipation. My doctor now thinks I may also have IBS. He prescribed me dicyclamine and it was awful. It didn't help much with the symptoms and it made me very dizzy. I am doing whatever it takes to get to the bottom of this. If anyone is going through something similar, please feel free to share your story with me. I look forward to hearing from all of you soon. Thank you!
