Were you checked for the presence of H. pylori?
Celiac disease can do it also. Most soy sauce is made with wheat. It could also be your gallbladder. My friend who had heartburn as her only symptom of Celiac disease said it took 2 or 3 months of the gluten-free diet to get results, and any time she gets a crumb of gluten, she is right back in pain.
haven't checked for h.pylori or celiac. I'm seeing a GI specialist on monday, we'll see what he comes up with.
I doubt it's celiac though, I tend to get it from greasy foods, but one of the few things I can eat without feeling sick is bread and pasta
turned out to be constipation in the high colon. The doc gave me the names of some OTC laxatives I should take and it seems to have worked so far.
Apparently these kinds of symptoms can occur with this type of constipation. It makes sense when I think about it, if there's a bunch of stuff stuck in there your body's not gonna want to stack anything else on top of it.
Also, levcin, as a cramp medication which affects smooth muscle, made it worse. Woops
