Sorry to bother everyone but I would be so grateful to get some help.
Ive had two years of bowel complaints, always having to go and cramps, just been diagnosed as IBS after colonoscopy found superficial ulcers and inflamed ileum but no signs of Crohns etc.
Been having daily nausea, dry heaves, for 8 months, along with burning pain stomach. Have been on Omerprazole, Lanzprzole, but after months on these was still having nausea and sickness. GP referred me to see Gastro with view to having endoscopy. However the specialist thought the nausea and pains was part of the IBS. He instead gave me a CT scan of the small bowel. He then stated that it was indeed 'IBS with spasms and malfunction of insides.' He put me on Zantac for the stomach and sickness.
After two months of Zantac the nausea and sickness and come back again, daily and dry heaves, find it hard to eat proper meals. Also suffer from fatigue and generally feeling unwell. The GP said the CT scan of the small bowel would have showed up if there was anything wrong with the stomach. Is this correct?
The GP just seems to think that the nausea and burning stomach, heaving, is due to the IBS. It seems like I wont be having the endoscopy after all. Can anyone please give some advice on what I can do? I feel like I'm getting nowhere. Would an endoscopy show anything? The specialist said even if it were stomach ulcers, the acid meds would clear them up so he saw no point in looking inside the stomach. I am at the end of my rope at the moment and so tired of feeling this way.
