Stomach issues

Posted , 4 users are following.

I have had severe pressure in upper abdomen for a few weeks. I also feel like I have a ball in the back of my throat. I have to cough after I eat, and have to eat often, in order not to get tgis horrible stomach pressure. Sometimes I itch after eating and get dizzy and pressure in my head.

    Hi dolores07100

    Have you been tested for a hiatus hernia. A friend of mine had your symptoms and was diagnosed with an hiatus hernia. Make an appointment with your GP and ask to be tested for it.  hope this helps dolores...best wishes...

    No, i had an ultrasound done last year when I had similar issues. Then it went áway, went to ER two weeks ago with the pressure and they did cardiac testing. Two dats after coming home I had worse symptoms. Maybe from the nitro glycerine. I sometimes take a pepcid, and helps a little. Most help  I get is by eating.

      I have found % pure Aloe Juice to work better than my regular medications. It can be found at the Wal-Mart in the section that contains nausea medications. DE flavor es no that great but, it es no the worst either. I use to drink about a 1/2 cup three times per day. It addressed my stomach issues for about a year after healing. I kinda forgot about it until reading another post. I need to start back on that routine again.

      I have been diagnosed as having gastroparesis, hiatal hernia, gastritis, narrowing of the esophagus, gallstones and duodenal ulcers. ... most likely stress related and the fact that I was taking a LOT of aspirin for terrible headaches. One thing affect another, I guess... -_-
