    Sarah, To you and all the new people who keep discovering this helpful site, I know it seems to be a daunting task but you need to sit down and read all the forums on topics which seem to relate to your problems. There is an enormous amount of information and anecdotes on symptoms, diagnoses, medications, side effects etc etc. I doubt if anything new or startling is going to suddenly arise, (although I check daily) and people aren't going to bother to keep repeating the info for each new person who joins us.  You need to absorb all this data and then work out for yourself, what you can do to help yourself. I am in an a slightly different situation in that I am in Australia and although, as an aged pensioner, I can ill afford it, I choose to have some private medical cover. This means I get to have endoscopies, ultrasounds, etc with relative ease. Whilst this does not necessarily provide any answers regarding reflux etc, it does prevent the anxiety and stress that comes from being convinced that we all have some terrible terminal illness. For me, a worrier, it is worth forgoing other things for this peace of mind, especially as I believe stress is a large contributor to our problems

      hi sane thank you very much for your helpful answer , yes you are right about reading the topics to understand more and not repeate the same information , and you are right the endoscoby , ultrasounds  .etc keep us  peacefulness and away from stress and over thinking about the proplems that we suffer more and yes mind is more dangerous tha the illness it self and most of the time we get sick cause of stress and depression and we give the proplem more size that it need , when the doctors refuse to do endoscopy and they say you are just nervous and stress that time I become more stress cause I have all this thought and anxiety about my stomach so  i don't eat like befor and lose weight ,my mom keep say that i must forget and and make some useful activites to keep anxiety away but I'm not trying to do anything except worry , thank you very much and i hope you are well
