I'm a 42 year old male. No history of any medical problems.
Sunday morning ( 9'th ) last month, I started experiencing an upset stomach. I had no symptoms the previous day. I had no change to my normal diet which is usually just normal home cooked foods.
It basically felt like an upset stomach sensation... maybe some inflamed feeling.. A few days after I took some anti acid pills.. which seemed to improve the discomfort level..
It usually gets a little worse after eating a meal. I would describe it as feeling a bit "bloated" or full after eating and some discomfort.
I also can taste a metallic taste in my mouth usually always in the morning after waking, and sometimes can see some rust color reddish blood in my saliva if I spit... I once belched and noticed it as well.... sometimes its just a yellowish type color...
I did also experience 1 bout of heartburn at one point.
-My appetite is ok now. Not 100% perfect but better than it was previously.. There were a few days when my appetite was bad.. then it improved...
- I have no Diarrhea. Stool looks normal color.
- No fever
- No vomiting
- No hard pains in stomach
- blood pressure normal
I went to a walk in clinic and the Dr there said it was GERD...
Then I went to a Gastroenterologist a few days ago and he sent me to get bloodwork (tomorrow) and a CT Scan with IV contrast on Monday...
anyone have similar symptoms or have more info about this ????
