I am 22, have been suffering from severe GORD for a year and a half now but was only diagnosed less than 6 months ago.
Had an endoscopy and my advice to those that have never had it done before, dont have it while ur awake, ask to be sedated because when ur gullet and stomach are raw and sore the pain of the endoscopy can be excrutiating, the worst experience in my life!
been put on omeprazole since and ive tried to figure out what foods i need to avoid but ive become increasingly intolerant to many foods. I even stopped having dairy products and switched to soya milk but now that seems to upset my stomach too.
The symptoms i get:
feeling sick and bloated,
deep pain in the stomach,
the opening to my stomach feels very tight and notted and can sometimes feel like ive got a marble stuck there too,
food feels heavy no matter what i eat,
shark pain occassionaly on my right side of my chest,
i tend to hiccup alot as well,
severe hunger pains when im mildy hungry,
and my saliva becomes really thick.
Ive found it can be triggered by:
When ive got an empty stomach, so i make sure i always have a snack in my bag and the necessity to eat regularly at regular times everyday is important.
It does take over ur life, and can make me feel very down at times.
