Hi,

Been having nausea with burping also rumbling stomach and very noisy.  Antacids didn’t work so on Monday GP said to try Omeprazole 20mg one first thing.  Tuesday am I took no nausea all day heck that felt great no stomach noises no feeling cold either.  Today after reading up on them I didn’t take one and later when at the shops I am going to get Zantac to try as GP did say you can buy over the counter and the calcium carbonate I was using which wasn’t working just neutralises acid.  Today I feel the nausea, chills and burping after eating.  He referred me for stomach scan and to gastroenterologist, waiting for the scan appointment at the moment the other appointment lord knows how long that will be at least four weeks.  I had bloods done, full blood count, liver, kidney, H Pylori, Thyroid and inflammation which they won’t be back till next Thursday.  Why are there chills with this, why would PPI work and chills go.  I had this a few years ago going through a neighbour dispute but took over the counter pills and it went, this seems to be sticking around.  I have gone through a lot over the past year, losing Mam to cancer, empty nest, pets being PTS which has then led to depression, could this be linked.  Thanks for reading

    Well after all my symptoms I had the endoscopy today and everything was find normal which I am pleased about.  I decided to not have sedation to have throat spray.  I was worried about just not been able to do anything most of the day so had throat spray only.  I tried to focus on my breathing as it’s that I panic about.  The worst bit was it thumping at the back and going down it wasn’t too bad until the air being pumped in.  I think I did well really as I am a panicker about things.  So it’s odd all my symptoms and inside me was all fine no hernia or anything.  I’m just glad it’s over.

      You are wonderful for asking.  No Robin I still have it so I think it’s arthritis due to posture, I have terrible posture always have even when sitting.  I think arthritis as I have a lot in other places, hope you are ok x
