    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....

    Burping and headaches

    Hi Guys, Just wanted to describe some of the symptoms I’m having and hopefully someone might have experienced something similar and can help. I’m 31, male, and average weight (74-78kg). For about 4 months I’ve been experiencing near constant burping as well as a range of other things: - burping - dull headaches/lightheaded ness (usually on left hand side or at the back). Sometimes can’t really stand up without feeling wobbly / like I could collapse - hot flushes - occasional stomach pain - shortness....

    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....

    Prilosec/Protonix + Zantac/Pepcid made my heartburn worse (and more)

    [I generally am more of a reader of posts rather than a writer of them, but I thought I should share my experiences with very bad heartburn recently.] I think I have had heartburn for many years, probably since I was in my late teens/early 20s and I'm now in my early 40s. When I was younger I used to religiously pop a Zantac or Pepcid when I had symptoms for many days or, sometimes, I would take them preventatively before going out to dinner or a night of drinks. As I got older I started sporadically....

    Health issues! Help

    I am a 23 year old female who went to the gym consistently and worked very normal, living a healthy life. About 3 months ago out of nowhere I felt sick and ever since that day I have constant nausea and always feel like I’m going to throw up and/or pass out. I have headaches and I’m always in a bad mood because I literally can’t do anything. I am tender to touch, there feels like a burning in my stomach, I am always bloated and crampy and cannot work out or eat normally because shortly after I feel....

    Heartburn??? Thats lasts for hours?

    Some may think this is a dumb question. I though, have not had heartburn or Acid Reflux since I had a Nissen Fundoplication for severe reflux. A couple of days last week I felt the need to take a Rolaid and the symptom went away. Saturday I had Heartburn and the pain that radiated straight through my back to the upper center of my back. This went on for 4 hours and no amount of Rolaids, Tums or Gas Ex took care of it.
