      All blood,CT scans and stool tests were negative. I've lost 20 pounds over the last 8weeks. I'm eating very small meals every three hours. Everything I eat is gluten free and dairy free(ie.baked chicken and backed potato). My Dr thinks it might be celiac artery compression syndrome. I'm actually meeting with the vascular Dr tomorrow morning. I'll definitely let you know.

      Hi

      Just found Gas X on Amazon, not cheap but I've got to do something! Doctor not sure what's wrong. Had a CT scan three weeks ago - nada! I'm on a CPAP a machine for sleep apnea and it seems I am one of the poor few that takes the oxygen into my stomach! I haven't lost weight, in fact it's piling on?? Can't eat big meals and I'm getting indigestion every time I eat. My stomach is so huge and hard as a rock and it really hurts. Blood pressure gone through the roof - 170/91 and when I bend over I can't breathe because of the pressure on my diaphragm. Sick to death with it so I'm going to try the Gas X. Will let everyone know if they work.

      Not a thing - they have no idea what's going on with me. Even the Sister in the Sleep Clinic was surprised that it hadn't gone by now. She told me to see my doctor again. She's just gone on holiday so have to see a different one, which isn't a bad thing sometimes. By the way, I used to take Omeprazole but there has been some recent research that has found it isn't good to take it long term. Can't remember what it does, you might have to search on here or Google it. I've ordered the Gas X and I'll be baaaack......lol

    Never known so many people personally and read about on mbs whove simular symptoms and all usual tests, scans, show no problems. l think it takes a scope to diagnose better. l get some bloating and wind but also cant face food, tea and oat biscuit day time, on good evening small amount of pots, broc, chicken or fish, on bad nights not even that feel full very easy, then wind.  lve lost about l8lbs, also right  hip and back pain, tiredness, breathless nauseous  on exertion. Many on gastritus thread have simular symptoms, but theyve had scope with gastroenterologist with gastritus or acid reflux diagnosed, but some get clear on that also. l know lve not been getting enough vits,mins protein for months, now feel shattered, infections,   l now take supplaments and bio drinks, should have at start of poor diet, but time goes by. See about referral to gastro enterologist. Be interesting to see if it is artery problem,

      hi, l started with bloating, wind and nausea, loss of appetite about october, 

      l did eventually have scope with gastroenterologist in feb, diagnosing a bit of gastritus, acid reflux, put on omprazole, still bit of bloating and poor appetite, not sure if its all down to gastritus, as not all with gastritus get the chronic nausea and lost appetite, still persuing solution. l honestly dont know how much bio drinks, probiotics, supplaments help, l,m hoping they do, as for months l was like you in living off tea and the odd oat biscuit, on a good night one slice bread sandwich or tiny plain meal, knew l was getting little vits, mins, proteins, but dr,s dont seem to bother or advice, and time went by, got run down and think in part due to poor diet, l did lose l8ibs but was 2-3 stone oweight, so not wasting away, but cant be good for health, if you can stomach supplaments its worth trying as it can take an age to get referrals and scan, scopes, unless you pay to speed it up.  If you check gastritus threat more info, but yours might be something different, not even sure mine is just that, l also get hip pain fatigue, Hope you get diagnosis soon.

      hi yes gps gave me different anti nausea pill,s also tried chemist bought stuff, gaviscon, herbal, nothing helped, Specialist put me on omprazole, as most get, anti acid tablets, not helped much either, should have had cystascope this week to see if bladder involved, but infection so they wouldnt do it. l know what you mean about docs, with our area now youve to ring for appt and get call back from doc to see if theyll see you in surgery, or just leave script, Everything takes so long, and your left to cope with it.  Anyway hope you get help soon, ask to see gastroenterologist, be a waiting list, but scope often ids. good luck
