57 y/o male I have recently had three month history of bothersome but not disabling feeling like heartburn that typically begins at noon. (Prior to the current three months, I had similar symptoms two years ago, negative upper endoscopy, advised Nexium. Took one Prilosec daily). Some days I have no symptoms. Food chart - I have not identified wheat, carbs, fat or proteins as associated. Not well relieved with antacids. Recent GI visit told me "have upper endoscopy" and "stop Prilosec". Stopped Prilosec, no difference.
Other symptoms - chronic irritated lower GI. Never had vomiting. No GI bleeding. Yes, bloating and belching. Occasional lower cramping and urgency, frequent bowel movements but rare diarrhea. Weight steady.
Prostate cancer treated with brachytherapy one year ago. PSA satisfactory. Any suggestions?
