I suffer from Gastric reflux and I’ve been getting pains in the middle of my back up near my shoulder blades which has been moving to my lower back along with hot flushes. I’m also getting back pains in my sides in the kidney area but these pains randomly come and go for no reason whatsoever. My Doctor suggested it could be referred nerve pain due to reflux and changed me from Omeprazole 20mgs daily to Pantoprazole 40mgs Daily. However, I’m now getting sciatic pains in my left buttock and I’m getting more and more worried about what the hell is going on with me.
Ideally I’d like to have a total body MRI scan to rule out any underlying cause. Has anyone been allowed to have this done and are my symptoms fairly minor for me to be wanting to request this? I originally thought the pain in my side was muscular in origin but I’ve stopped lifting things and I’m still getting the pain. I know it’s nothing to do with my kidneys because I recently had an ultrasound of my kidneys and bladder which was OK.
Any advise from anyone please?
