For about a month now, I have been experiencing symptoms on and off what does feel like acid reflux. About a month ago, I ended up passing a kidney stone. Naturally, that put my body through a lot of physical trauma. So, during this time, I was having some bad burning in my stomach and my stomach kept making this weird sounds everytime a bad burning sensation came on. It felt like my stomach was kind of expanding with a bubble of acid or something then would make this sound like it was exhaling. Very strange.
Anyways, my appetite eventually came back and I was eating normally. All of a sudden then, it is back this week. The same feeling started on Monday before I was going to eat. After I ate, the sensation became even worse. Unfortunately, I was in public with my family so I had to push through it. It eventually stopped when I got back home.
It came back yet again on Wednesday and this time it was absolutely awful. Intense burning in my stomach, feeling as if food was stuck in my throat and bad gas pains. I ended up finally falling asleep after taking these chewable tablets for nausea. On Thursday, the feeling was alright. I did not have much of an appetite, but I had managed to be able to eat some food when I went out for lunch yesterday. When I got back home later that night, the burning came back, but it was more bearable this time and I was able to get some sleep.
Today, as I am typing this, the burning is back and seemed to have started up after I ate. The bubbling in my stomach is here as well and keeps making odd noises. I had some pieces of cantelope, honeydew, and watermelon for lunch. I do not have much of an appetite and frankly have not since this started up. I had a BM(bowel movement) earlier and my stool was soft. I suspect this is because I have barely eaten lately.
I went to my GP yesterday afternoon. He seemed not too sure what it could be, but he said that it could be acid reflux. So, he has prescribed me some omeprazole I am supposed to be picking up today at the pharmacy. Does anyone think this could be acid reflux or something else I should be concerned of?
I have had gall bladder issues before. At 11 years old, I was hospitalized for anemia and the doctors found that my gall bladder was having issues. I had gallstones, but the doctors have decided that I do not have them taken out or my gallbladder as it has not caused me issues since. I also had an ultra sound taken when the kidney stone was found and they said my gallbladder looked great. So, it could not be my gallbladder I think.
Any advice or feedback would be so much appreciated! I want to have an appetite back very badly.
