    Heartburn and gas

    I've had heartburn and I guess reflux for a few months, well since March to be honest. I get gas, hiccup once or twice (small ones) and then heartburn. I'm trying to figure out if it's certain foods etc so am doing a food diary, but food and drinks can set it off, sometimes an hour or so after food. I'm not looking for a diagnosis as I have a gastroscopy coming up but I would like some advice on things that might help it etc.

    Mysterious flu

    Hello, I have been getting what I call my "period flu" every month, and recently even more frequently than that. It starts before or during my period (but not in the last two months.) I get a cough, reduced sense of taste and appetite, diahrea, slight fever, intestinal issues, nausea, and sometimes vomiting. I am considering going on birth control to get rid of the symptoms (hopefully.) No, there is no possibility I am pregnant, this has been going on for longer than 9 months and I'm....

    DANGEROUS Rare fecal mucus?

    During the past two months or so there has been excessive flatulence, anal discharge, and mucus in my poo. I've tried to ignore it away thinking whatever is going on will be fixed by my AMAZING white blood cells. Well I'm afraid I've maybe betrayed my body's immune system getting something that is incurable. There's some vague information out here on the net that maybe it's an infection or std. Or maybe IBS. Truthfully I hope I can remain as well as can be but this is too....

    Gastritis And heartburn

    I have been diagnosed with gastritis yesterday and have been suffering from heartburn, bloating and fullness for 3 months now. What I don't understand is if gastritis is inflammation of stomach lining, why is my LES relaxing and causing heartburn to a point where my throat swells up everyday? Is stomach not able to send proper signals to close the LES? Or is the high pressure in stomach causing LES to relax? If not what else? Either way, will LES return to normal functioning after gastritis treatment....

    GERD/Acid Reflux Disease

    I have acid reflux disease and my doctor wants to me to get a blood test and an ultrasound done to check if it's h. pylori or gallbladder. I'm unsure as to why or how either of those could be causing me acid reflux symptoms and all the pain I'm expierencing. Could someone please help me to understand? Thank you.

    LPR - silent reflux - or something else?

    My asthma doctor suspects I may have LPR. He suggested this once before, about 7 years ago; I had an endoscopy that was negative for GERD. Don't really want to go through that again so I'm trying to self-diagnose. Symptoms: throat clearing (could also be post-nasal drip) tickle in the throat that causes irresistible coughing belching even after just a sip of water I have an iron stomach: I rarely get any sort of indigestion. No bowel issues either. I've started treating the tickle with....

    GERD?

    I have a constant feeling of having a little something in my throat I always feel when I swallow. I'm pretty sure nothing is actually there. Is this caused by acid reflux? I'm realizing I may have had acid reflux my whole life because I also have chest tightness/pain on my left side often.. but I've never taken anything for acid reflux. Could it do permanent damage to my esophagus?
