Hi. I've been having some strange symptoms for almost a year now and would like to know if anyone else has similar story or knows what's going on. Here goes-
Last September (coinciding with a stressful time at work and my youngest going to school and leaving me with empty nest syndrome) I started to get cheat pains and acid reflux symptoms. I went to my GP after a month or so and broke down in tears about how down I felt and my symptoms. I have a fecal h pylori test and a bunch of bloods- all clear.
Took omeprazole for a month- no improvement. But just symptoms on and off.
Fast forward a few months and the symptoms are more frequent- left sided breast pain that moves round to my sterum and is relieved by burping or taking Rennies. Went back to another Gp when my stools started going yellowy when I wipe. She gave me a months supply of Lansoprazole. I've nearly finished them now and last week i felt just fine except for a bit of an upset tummy.
This week I have the discomfort again, left sided, under my ribs and central chest discomfort but I also have nausea every morning and soft poop. My stool is now a light to mid brown and this is what is worrying me because I've googled!
I have no weight loss, jaundice, the discomfort is not a pain but I'm starting to get really worried!
I have another appointment next week with my GP.
Thanks for reading, any advice or reassurance?
