I had Gastrin test of 6384 way high and I am so scared of gastronomy. My doctor retired and now looking for a GI doctor. I wished I new what the result of you test. I fasted for 12 hours and I am on protonix.
Yes I do think you fit the profile for zollinger-ellison syndrome, but it is very rare. I hope you figure out what is wrong very soon and find some relief soon too.
yeah. My scope was just done last week...and I went from one small ulcer to 6 ulcers in about 7 months time...I was also on prilosec then switched to nexium and the ulcers still got worse. I still can't eat much and am loosing weight. I am just tired and want to know whats going on with me. Do you think I fit the profile for zollinger ellison syndrome? My gastrin levels were elevated a little above 1000....but I was on nexium at the time. I really hate having to wait to figure out what's going on. Sometimes I feel they never will figure it out
And the endoscopy that showed the ulcers was recent (long after you stopped taking NSAID's)?
No I don't anymore. I never really have other then excedrin for my migraines but I even stopped that. Haven't taken any NSAID's for at least 7 months.
Welcome to the gastroenterology community! The ulcers worry me, especially because the tests came back negative for h pylori. Do you ever take NSAIDS's anymore?
