I just wanted to find out how you were doing and if all or most of your symptoms have resolved by now. I feel like we both have remarkable similarities as I have been going through the exact same symptoms after a bout of viral thyroiditis I had last year. I'm 35 years old, 6ft tall and my weight has hovered anywhere from 210-250 pounds pretty much all my adult life. Since the Viral infection last year, my life has been turned upside down. I get a bad mid left back ache after eating (which started after some suspicious abdominal attack around last year's Christmas) and it persists for a while every day. I had a CT-pancreatic protocol 1 year back and an 3T MRI-pancreatic protocol last month, and they both looked very normal. I had bouts of gastroparesis from time to time. Thank you.
i have gerd and gallbladder symptoms and my edoscopic and all gall bladder test came back normal. what do you think can be the problem of this pain and discomfort?
Dr. Thiel's paper is a good read.
I just read one of your old posts about gastritis and GB disease. I had a normal GB (HIDA 53%) with pain, mild sludge, and gastritis. They told me there was nothing they could do.
Kept getting worse. Now HIDA is 4%, ulcer, gastritis and diverticulitis! Can't wait to read the rest of your posts.
I saw your posts on the ph scale. I just had a bravo ph (no gerd symptoms but had some stomach tissue in the esophagus on past endoscopy). Mostly I stayed in the 6-8 range, but I did have a few go to 8, 9, and even 'hi' (meaning 10). I did not feel any different when those higher numbers came. No bile was seen during the endoscopy, and no history of gall bladder problems. Just curious, what did your doctor say about your high numbers (I believe you said you had a 8.6 reading once). Thanks so much and good luck with everything.
I read a post of yours describing electrical stimulation from your acupuncturist that really helped you a lot.
Do you have his/her contact info? I want to make sure that the acupuncturist I end up seeing will use the same treatment. I don't know where else to turn.
Thanks for your help,
One more thing. You seem to be interested in weight loss and somewhat into natural remedies. I highly recommend Dean Ornish's book, The Spectrum. A lot of excellent, scientifically-supported advice in there. Hope you're doing well.
Don't know if you're still active on this site, but I've gone through some of your comments and found your advice to be very helpful. I just ordered Iberogast via Amazon to see if it helps with my functional dyspepsia / reflux / whatever the heck is wrong with me. Cheers.
Hope you feel better soon! Have a good weekend! Everything going well with your GB removal?
hey..how are you doing? Did you have another surgery? I could have sworn I saw U had your GB removed about a month ago..is this something else? I sure do hope you get to feeling better.
Just a quick note to say hi!
im glad everything went well. get some good rest and eat healthy!
just wishing you well on your surgery!
Welcome to our community!
well we did talk on the phone and I told him that but I will tell him everything... I hope for the best and I do not remember how long this has been going on for to tll u the truth.
Im glad you feel well! Thank you for all your advice that you have given to me! I really appreciate it! I am seeing a GI tmw...anythink I should know or say or ask him?
Just a quick note to say hi! Was wondering how you are doing since I have not seen an update after your surgery. Hope all is well..and have a good weekend!
Hope you feel better soon! I read you are doing fine after surgery! So happy for you. I am doing well too. Feeling great! Take care of yourself!
How are you doing today? You are so lucky to be in FL.. we use to live in Plantation...I loved it there, but my fiancee got transferred to Georgia. Just checking on U.
Just a quick note to say hi!
Welcome to our GERD community! : ) "selma"
Just a quick note to say hi! Thanks...I couldn't ask them, because they were closed, but I did call a pharmacist, who told me it would be fine. My surgery went well, too, I just haven't heard the path report yet.
Gnorb, do you have any links to information on Shatavari?
I don't know.
All I received was the posted info. and a referral to a surgeon.
Hi friend how are you over there? Just checkin' in on ya! Be good!
Hey gnorb! Just stoppin to say hello! Hope your having a great labor day weekend... :)
I saw the doctor in Dallas, He discovered that I have a very bad inner ear imbalance, so I have perpetual motion sickness. I am going to see an ENT for the ears. He said that once my gastritis settles down my stomach should start working again. We will see if he is right. I will keep you posted. Thank you
NO i havent honestly, so many things are starting to really bother me because of this, my migrains have gone haywire and i've been to the ER almost 3 times in the past 6 months, and i am now anemic and all this week everyday except for one i have been sick. I am tired of being sick, not to mention that i have lost 10 pds in the past week and a half, i only weigh about 118, i can't afford to lose to much more. ya know
but i will keep you updated.
Thank you, i am going to try and track down some of that Rooibos tea. I googled it and it sounds intereting.
Thank you for everything! I appreciate your response, I have been doing some research and found out pretty much what you had to tell me. I did get an appointment with a doctor in Dallas that has a GI Motility Laboratory. I am hoping he can offer me something that works other then a J or G tube. I was able to try motilium from Europe but it is not helping. I am looking forward to my Dr. visit with this new Dr. I just hope I can hold out that long. The pain and nausea is almost unbearable at times. I will try to keep updates. thank you again
Thanks for your insight. In regards to diet...I'm a vegetarian yet, i eat fish and eggs. Besides paleo do you have any other suggestions up your sleeve?
