I went through the same symptoms for nearly three months, feeling sick, upper stomach pain etc. My ultrasound and CT scans were normal except for a small gallbladder polyp. I and lost over 10 pounds and was miserable.
Finally I had a endoscopy and everything was normal except for mild inflammation from acid reflux. Now i'm back to normal, gained some weight back except for a few minor symptoms.
So my advice is to get a endoscopy to rule other causes.View Thread
I got my endoscopy less than 2 weeks ago and found I only have mild inflammation of the esophagus. Everything else is normal, no H. Plylori. I'm thankful it wasn't anything more serious, especially after nearly three months of terrible symptoms (mainly upper abdominal pain).
I was on Prevacid, protonix and now finally dexilant. I still have some minor symptoms but improved greatly. From my experience, you just have to be patient, keep taking your meds and finally don't stress yourself.
It's always important to see a Gi doctor to rule out anything more serious.View Thread
I finally seen a GI doctor after 3 months when my symptoms first appeared. The only concern is my almost constant mid upper stomach discomfort/burning pain is not responding well to me the medication but does help reduce the pain.
I'm due for a endoscopy in 1 week, i'm negative for H. Plyori and never had had reflux symptoms before until three months ago. I don't drink, smoke and rarely take OTC pain releivers.
I lost 10 pounds (mostly within the first two months) due to a reduce appetite from the discomfort/pain but stayed steady at 170lbs. I have no trouble swollowing nor does it hurt to eat.
