So i have mild/moderate bile reflux with bile gastritis. Its half way decently controlled but i can get sick at night 1 or twice a week/ every two weeks. Basically my symptoms are bloating, nausea, weakness in arms / legs, chills and fatigue, sometimes i feel a lump in my throat and sometimes i feel like theres a brick near my bladder, like there is stool just sitting there. My triggers are tomato based foods, ie, pizza sauce, pasta sauce, katshup ect., drinking soda right after dinner (i can drink it about an hour or so later) or drinking water right after dinner (usually drink vitamin water) and A1 SauceSo far thats what i have, that and over eating. at first my doc thought maybe gastroparesis after a positive Gastric empty study, but he amended it after re-evaluating my symptoms and eating habits. not to mention that i had the stomach flu the whole week i had my GES done. He and i both think false positive.so today i was eating fried rice, something i have eaten before and had no issues. I started to get bloated and eventually felt good enough to eat dinner about 6 hours later (just a grilled cheese). the only thing i can think of was maybe i drank too much vitamin water right after i ate lunch. im just wondering if anyone had something like this? I had a pair of pop tarts for breakfast and felt fine. I was hungry before lunch.How long does your gerd last? What makes it better?For me, which is weird, anything that makes my insides move around and forces me to pass gas. Prunes, prune juice, lactulose will make my intestines gurgle and then id pass a ton of gas, making me feel better. I was always diagnosed with IBS-C and use the lactulose to go to the bathroom. Usually the day after i take my lactulose i am usually fine and can eat. Between 2008 and 2013 i had a hand full of times where i would get these symptoms for a couple weeks and then it would go away. But early 2014 it stuck around and i lost 40 lbs since then. Iv been through a ton of tests. I was taking 240mg of verapamil ER (since 2008) but i was given a lower dose as of a month ago because my GI thinks it could be causing my issues.
So what it boils down to is, is it gastritis thats causing my issues or could it be the anxiety tied with it?
