Constant sour stomach/indigestion
I have been having indigestion for over two months everyday now and just had egd done. The doctor said everything looked normal but they did take a biopsy to see if things were digesting properly or if there is a problem, and would let me know results in about 4-5days. If everything is normal, why would they take a biopsy? I have been on prilosec, protonix and they never helped. Have constant gnawing pain in abdomen-mild most days, but alcohol and some foods sometimes cause it to be worse. I'm afraid the biopsy will be normal, then what? What will be done next so I dont have to live with this pain forever??

Welcome to the gastroenterology community!  It is a normal practice to take a biopsy even if everything looks normal.  This is to make sure there isn't something that can't be seen with the naked eye.  I would recommend trying different food eliminations.  A good one to start with would be eliminating all lactose.  Good luck.
