I am now at my wits end. I have been suffereing from Acid Reflux which was diagnosed as Upper Oesophagitis Reflux last month in June even though I have had it since December; it was originally H Pylori which went and then returned as Reflux in May.
After countless visits to the doctor who did not seem concerned and a cocktail of tablets to try; none of which seem to be working - Lansoprazole, Omeprazole and now Ranitidine.
My biggest fear is the weight loss which according to websites is an alarm bell for more serious issues, yet I have told my doctor several times and who really doesn't seem concerned??
'You have been ill and have lost your appetite, what do you expect?' is his reply.
Even now as I type I feel the gnawing feeling in my tummy after just eating a single ham sandwich.
Does this dreadful, misery invoking disease ever go? My doctor seems to think that it can be with you for life! I am 44 and do not relish this following me for the rest of my days.
