Hi, I am new to this and would really appreciate your thoughts and advice.
About 6 weeks ago I got indigestion and heartburn in the bottom of my breastbone (the start of the stomach from the oesophagus) and took some Gavisgon.
This didn’t do anything so after a week I went to the GP who said it could be viral infection as I also had a little cough at the same time.
He give me Omeprazole but said he didn’t think it was reflux but it wouldn’t hurt to take them just in case.
2 weeks later it was still the same so I went back to the GP, who requested a chest x-ray (which came back clear). He also took full blood tests to check Liver, Thyroid, FBC, H-pylori and all came back clear and normal.
I have since been back again (last week) as still the same, but now I also have stomach pains and pains in my right side (next to my ribs). I was given Zantac and they requested an Endoscope to see what is going on.
I am a little concerned as if it were gastric then surely the tablets (omeprazole and zantac) would have reduced the pain a little?
I should point out that I do worry all the time and suffer from anxiety. Could this be severe anxiety or as if I think something more serious? Having goggled the symptoms pain in stomach and lasting indigestion looks like it could be anything from an ulcer, hernia to life taking illnesses.
Anyone had anything similar?
