    Hi chris , your blood test would have shown cancer anywhere in your body , plus the stomach GI CT scan test were clear !!!! Thank God you are good shape !!!! For the stomach burning .. Could be just from certain food intolerance . Change your diet plan a few weeks see if that helps .. No spicy foods or a lot of greasy food to start . Sometimes these certain foods can make your stomach lining raw , nothing serious ,just need to eat a little different and let it heal

    All your scans are clear, your doctor has reassured you and the scans you have had are highly accurate. This is good news for you. Your doctor is the expert and would have referred you for more urgent tests had he been concerned. He has not done this. Instead, he has reassured you and given you reasons why you should not be worrying . He would not have said these things had he thought otherwise. Try believing and trusting your doctor and accepting your negative test results. Has yiur dictor suggested what your symptoms could indicate?Do you have bowel habit change and does your pain move about? Has IBS been mentioned? When all tests are negative, IBS can be diagnosed. Worrying will make your symptoms worse. Try to stay as calm as possible. Write down all your worries and ask your doctor to disprove them one by one and listen to his explanations. I did this and it helped me. Telling my doctor about my worries got me diagnosed with IBS.

      dyspepsia is a common issue for burning sensation in your stomach . Have you tried a baking and water mixture ? Or ginger tea ? Have you vomited with this condition , if so were there any show of blood ? It has been 8 months right ? So you would have other signs if it were cancer , like blood in your stool or black stool , do you ? Also you say there is no pain ? Did you know stress can also cause burning sensation in your stomach . Have you taken Gas X ? Try any of these i mention , see if it helps . But of course consult your doctor with any concerns , just to put your mind at ease

      Functional means that it is not a problem with the structure of the organ and so no scan will show it Since your doctor says it's functional, you should not worry. There are such conditions as functional dyspepsia. Ask your doctor about that. Multiple negative tests is good news for you. Worrying can cause a burning sensation in your stomach. That's how my burning stomach began. Try to relax!

      With everything you have said christopher ,the bitter taste in your mouth set it off ... A Gallbladder disfunction . . Once a gall bladder builds up with excess gunk from foods it gives off gas causing burping and poots , ,,pain can be tolerated but sometimes can be worse . The bitter taste comes from the gases erosion . , its like a clogged toilet , .discuss this with your doctor ,he / she will run test , the worst scenario is , it may need to be removed , but you can live without it .
