Can anyone help?In less than a year i have been diagnosed with hiatal hernia,GERD,a gallstone,IBS,H.Pylori infection,lactose intolerance,Barrett's Esophagus,and chronic gastritis.I also suffer from daily headaches and awful eczema.I have constant upper stomach pain,belching,feeling full, and heartburn. i have lost 8 lbs. in three months still eating normally and i'm a small framed girl and cannot afford to lose anymore weight.Had every test done to reveal all of these issues but GI doc says none of these should be causing pain.I am also constantly nasueas.
It sounds as if I wrote this! Helps to know that you're not alone in this world.
I gave up on all doctors. The only hope is me and my doing. I'm not sure if it helps, but again, I shouldn't be negative. I am in constant pain, but still here is what I do everyday.
I do fast walking every day for an hour. I do breathing exercieses to strengthen my diafragmn and esophogeal spincter mucles. I drink a lot of carrot juice for vitamin A.
I take liquid calcium 1teaspoon 2-3 times a day. Because having acid in your body damages your bones and weakens your mucles, including your internal organs' mucles, like esophageal spincter. I drink a lot of water. I take Flax oil every day. I eat mostly vegeterian, but since I'm losing weight, I do have fish once a week for protein. I read books which helps me to be distracted from my pain a little bit. I keep upright posture when I sit up. And all other little things.
I'm in pain, but I am sure I will get well. The worst case scenario, so you die. So what. But while you alive, you do everything to help yourself and enjoy every moment of sunshine. Even if your're in pain.
I would switch doctors- hiatal hernia, GERD, and gallstones can all be uncomfortable, if not downright painful. Have these doctors never even had 5 minutes of trapped gas?
have you tried simetchicone? Gaviscon chewables/
Have you tried enzymes?
I have gallbladder removal, hiatal hernia repair, and Nissen wrap - (partial) and I feel a lot better but still take enzymes, Gaviscon and Tagamet..
I was 99 pounds 10 years ago- ummm now I am 150 :-/ and obviously loving FOOD again
