Anxiety can cause a lot of the symptoms you are describing.

Shane Ganley
i sometimes feel extremely lose in myself and there are some nights were im unable to eat this is so anonying and it makes u feel like poo. im having the camara down me to see what going on. its been going on for 5 weeks

Becky Fox
Keep pestering the docs till they sort it out, its a real struggle i know how you feel, im battling this at the top of my stomach and just had an op for endometriosis at the bottom of my stomach, but push on there is light at the end of the tunnel, anxiety makes things 10 x worse. Hope you get some answers soon. X

Shane Ganley
the thing which is good about this sight is were all getting the simiar problems :) which gives u some peace at mind and everyday i always bring up food liquids ect and i think thats where my problem is my top stomach aswell. theres days were food is fine the next thing bang it starts again it makes u feel rubbish .when they did your camara what did they find wrong with u x.

Lacinda Wedlock
I havnt had an endoscopy.

Julie Boleware
Anxiety is probably your biggest reason for all these symptoms. I'd start with that. You have to make up your mind that you are taking control of this situation. After all these years of suffering from gerd and anxiety, you probably know as much as the doctors do. When my test came back normal, I took matters into my own hands. I got off the drugs I knew in my gut (no pun intended) were not good for me, and I started doing things I knew would be good for me. I don't suffer the way I did and I am much happier.

I originally had gastritis two years ago, started on omeprazole and things settle down but then i had a really bad flare in august, just last week started taking ranitidine to which has helped, ive lost two stone since august which is a good thing but i do miss eating what I want when i want without the worry and pain

I cant really offer much advice as non of my advice is working for myself either. I have pretty much 99% of what you have written down there..only other extra is I have coeliac disease oh and asthma (not sure if you have that). Just thought you might feel comfort in the fact someone else feels the same right now. Even down to the tiredness and feeling like I cant go on every day like this. Its so hard and I really hope we end up okay with all of this. Im also 23 and ive had anxiety long term, dizzy problems and now gerd (that doesnt seem to have an end to it). I am also waiting for a barium swallow. Good luck and god bless you, I feel you I really do xxx.

Lacinda Wedlock
Wat symptoms do u get with coeliac disease?

Jemma Louise Massey I dont really know 2bh haha. I didnt have many before I was diagnosed..just IBS type symptoms and couldnt put on weight and anaemic. The bad symptoms started after I changed to gluten free, as then any tiny bit of gluten I had reacted badly. Bloating, gas etc. Its hard to tell now which is coeliac and which is acid really x

Lacinda Wedlock
I have them same symptoms but i havnt changed my diet.

Jemma Louise Massey
Get it checked out with your GP to rule it out if youre worried. But dont cut it out of your diet until after you get tested, as it may show a false result as it may not appear in your system if youve cut it out x.

Elizabeth Rudd Greene Probiotics may help the gerd and certain probiotics can help anxiety. Also try probiotic foods, and a half tsp of Braggs apple cider vinegar in water before meals. I use a little esophageal guardian or gaviscon when I need it.

Nadya Wibowo
I use to have all that

Lacinda Wedlock
How did u stop it

Vicki Mandujano
Use ?

Nadya Wibowo
I stop taking ppi. It makes the symptoms worse for me. I take ranitidine & gaviscon when needed only. PPI give me high anxiety (weird never had any anxiety problem before this), give me ear block & heart palpitation especially nexium. I still get heart burn from time to time, but undercontrol with gaviscon/ranitidine.

Todd Whiting
Todd Whiting Ever think about maybe you have Lyme disease especially since you ride horses? You can easily get bit by a tick since they like animals. I have it and wake up feeling very tired and feel like crap most of the time.

Lacinda Wedlock
Ive never been bitten by a tick.

Julie Boleware
Not saying you have Lyme, but my husband had it and never knew he'd been bitten.

Lacinda Wedlock
Would it show up on blood tests as ive had a few tests.

Julie Boleware
It's a specific blood test. CBC won't show it.

Miriam Mustafa-Ragoobir
Please look into histamine intolerance and salicylate intolerance I am now looking into them I think it might just be my problem.....I wish u well๐Ÿ’ž

Lacinda Wedlock
Has anyone gotten pain after eating an it pulses from ur left finger to breast bone ? ๐Ÿ˜•

Shane Ganley
another thing im also getting is shortness in breath and feeling rather fainty and lose - at the back of my throat theres these small dots on my tonugue and tiny bit of fungle of my tongue.

Stephanie Dunbar
I feel the same way you do too but I'm a little older than you. I get so many headaches anymore not sure if it has anything to do with gastritis and reflux and the meds I take for it or not but I would love to feel like I did about 10 years or ago or longer than that.
