stomach problems

Posted , 10 users are following.

Hi everyone can you help me with some advice please. For months ive suffered with tummy pain in upper tummy, the test for Helicobacter Pylori is negative, I live with constant nausea & dizziness, bloated tummy, face tingling & tiredness. My GP seems baffled but this is wrecking my life ive been off work weeks now. Its strange because every medication I'm given makes me worse the omeprazole, ranitidine ect all give me horrendous headaches & spaced out feeling, anti sickness cytacine ? make my nose & top lip tingle & make me sleep. I am so frightened now has anyone been through similar my email is in case I don't see replies on here. Thanks guys I feel so rotten all the time my chin is numb today after anti sickness tab can all this really be stomach acid or something else my GP say as Helicobacter Pylori is clear its not ulcers. What then? xxx

      I have a lot of tingling and numbness in both arms due to nerve damage from previous falls and a botched blood test.  It has been plaguing me a lot recently because of the cold, damp British weather.  When I got to Italy, the boiling heat of the sumner gets rid of the problem.

    You need to go back to your doctor and ask him to arrange an endoscopy for you, or preferably an endoscopic ultra-sound. If these show up nothing  I suggest you talk to your Dr about seeing an endocrinologist. Otherwise you'll never get anywhere apart from reading all the replies here and they won't cure you.
