I wish i knew what symptoms are with what!!  I have mild gastritis, acid reflux symptoms and a 2cm gallstone. I keep feeling like my lungs are congested and bring phlegm up in the morning. I get random nausea, fatigue, shoulder/back/neck discomfort. I have had all my bloods done, chest listened to, oxygen levels checked, endoscopy, x ray of right shoulder and abdominal scan. All fine except mild gastritis and 2cm gallstone. I am having a chest x ray on tuesday because i have basically told my gp i think somethings wrong with my lungs but she doesn't and isn't worried at all. She said she wouldn't normally do it but sending me for peace of mind.

    Hiya Dianne!

    I'm in the same boat as you. My acid refux/gastritis are causing some really, really weird symptoms and it's kinda becoming a joke now. I started coughing up mucus after a bout of cold and it's been 3 weeks and it still kinda disturbs me. During the same time, I had a weird, vague discomfort in my shoulders/neck/back which either becomes worse or better every day. It's kinda bad today. It's mostly the upper back between the shoulder blades. As an added bonus, I believe I have a serious anxiety disorder of some sort. Thanks to the internet, I'm getting all sorts of nightmares of either having pancreatisis or....something worse. Although I'm pretty sure it's my bones or a muscle strain.

    At least, those tests will bring your mind at ease. 

    Gastritis is one hell of a condition...

      'Me: Hey Google! Long Time no see! So err I have a sore knee. It's not that serious but-

      Google: Ok. It's probably a stage IV tumor and you may need to chop off you leg from that. However, it may have spread to your colon so you have to remove that too. While you're at it, you might have a serious infection from the initial surgery so yeah, you're pretty much screwed.

      Me: Oh...uh. Wow. Thanks?

      Google: Any time, man. Any time. (Evil Laugh)'

      Google should be awarded an oscar for the best negative role in the known history.

      Lol Ahmed..

      I totally agree with you. I read so much of stuff on the internet and became so depressed that my husband and family couldnt recognize me anymore (from the person that I was). Stopped reading stuff on the net and I can guarantee it was one of the best things I ever did in my life.
