  • Stomach trouble....

    Okay, so for about the last month now I've had heartburn almost every day (no matter what I eat) along with reoccuring nausea. I was finally able to talk to my doctor in the beginning of last week and was put on Zantac to see if it helped get rid of my symptoms. This past Tuesday, I had an episode where I got lightheaded, nauseous, had stomach cramps and a tingling sensation in my hands which all went away within an hour. Then on Thursday night, I started having cramps and I was nauseous again....

    Acid reflux

    Hello just joined this group:) About 2 weeks ago I woke up one morning with pain mostly under right rib cage but as the day progressed it went up the center of my chest as well. I have been diagnosed 3 years ago with GERD and put on pantoprazole 40mg daily. I have been on and off of it since. I have been on it steady though for the last year and now it doesn’t seem to be working. I have been eating very carefully and am also trying acupuncture. Just wondered if anyone else has had this happen with....

    I am having the same issues as the previous poster but this is the first time I'm posting so I'm not sure this is where this is going but I've had acid reflux for years and two years ago and last year I was in so much pain that no matter what they tried didn't work and then all of a sudden one day I was fine.

    Right sided flare ups

    One month ago, I began having abdominal pain on the lower right side. It would move back and forth between my belly button and my side. I had gas, pain with bowel movements that were either loose or constipated. Then I noticed the pain would go back and forth between under my ribs, similar to where my gall bladder and pancreas are and then back down low. I had tons of testing done and everything was either negative or inconclusive. I was 5 pregnant so they did not do a CT but they did do a MRI and....

    15 yr old son. Reflux or anxiety?

    Hi there. Hoping to find answers. My 15 year old son has been going to a gastro Dr at Childrens for five years. They did not come out and say he had reflux. They said the scope looks good. They think it’s just anxiety. Problem is, my kids stomach hurts so badly all the time, that he can not eat before 1 pm or after 6 pm!!! His only Med is ranitidine 309 mg. It does help the pains. My question is two part: 1) is there anything to get completely rid of it? And 2) his breath does NOT smell sour, like....

    Strange throat / chest tension

    Hi all, So I’ve had GERD for several years now and I’ve been noticing some intense chest / lower throat tension. (I’ve had my heart checked out and it’s okay) I’ve figured out that if I look straight up and breathe deep with my belly, (while sitting up straight) it feels like my diaphragm is pulling my throat / esophagus down, it’s a nice feeling. I have terrible posture so my chest / neck are tight usually, and I have anxiety. I’m just curious if anyone has any insight as to what else I’m stretching....

    Persistent Abdominal Pain for 2 years - Anyone been into this situation?

    At the beginning pf 2016 I got really depressed after a break up and started smoking. First only cigarettes then marijuana as well. I started travelling more and my healthy living declined. I would overdose on Marijuana until I got panic attacks. I would only do it just so I could forget about my depression and then feel better after getting over those panic attacks. After a pretty heavy one I decided to cut down on the weed. But then, in late 2016 just as I was getting over the breakup I had the....
