Hi! Well, I have gastritis and Acid Reflux (AR) and am presently taking Zantac, have been for about two-three weeks. However, for the past couple days, I've been getting repeated symptoms; tickle in my throat, nausea, bitter iron-like taste in the back of my mouth, upset stomach, stomach cramps, AR, and a weird cough that only happens when I feel sick. When I feel like this is mostly either around 2 in the afternoon to anywhere from 8-past 12. Its very unsettling, and though I haven't vomited or had diarrhea, it's still way too uncomfortable. Is this gastritis? The meds? Sometimes I'll take tums or Peptobismol to calm my stomach down, and usually it works. I'm afraid to eat, and I've lost weight over it. I'm already underweight as is, so this can't keep going on. Please, can anyone tell me what this might be or what's really happening? What I can do? I'm going to see if I can talk to my doctor soon.
This is interfering with my life; I can't act like my normal self, and I'm losing sleep over this. I'm so tired, and I really just want my regular guts back. Please and thank you,
