Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board


Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


Good afternoon to all.I came on this site to hopefully share my story with you and ask for opinions on what is going on with me.Here is my story please let me know what you may think is my problem.

On March 2nd I was doing my heavy weight training(I used a lot of supplements which my osteo said could have kicked this all off).On March 3rd I woke up with a feeling of an elephant sitting on my chest (no acid reflux or heartburn,appetite was fine same with BM etc).I went to doctor 1 and they check my heart and said everything was ok and it was muscular ,tense muscles in the back.Take advil and relax don't touch weights.

Beginning of April the tension in my chest was gone but my upper left side of back really hurt(between shoulder blades).I couldn't even lean on my left side it was tense everywhere including my neck and jaw muscles.I had a Chiro and doctor 2 take xrays each.No problems with xrays or lungs and they said given the sheer muscle tension it was muscular.I was given more anti inflamms,plus muscle relaxers.

Mid April I went to emergency room because it hurt bad and id get spasms up my spine etc from what seemed left upper back/shoulder.They checked me and gave me Lyrica to dumb the nerves and said go see your family doctor.By this time with all these drugs I was taking my acid reflux started and became bad.I had to drink like half a bottle of pepto plus zantacs a night,id spit up weird coffee colored spit,and BM was dark but pepto does that to me.I immediately dropped all pills instantly,plus coffee and alchohol.

April 25th finally got a family doctor (im in quebec real hard).He checked me out since my main complaint was my back.He checked it and said it was muscular to (always left upper side).Took notes on my tums ive been eating since my 20's when i drink coffee too much or stressed.Did full blood tests for colesterol,liver etc,white blood cell count etc.Nothing wrong,sent me for physio.Acid reflux and pepto requirement dropped to almost nothing when I stopped the pills.

Started physio and they managed to relax my cement like muscles (neck,back left side shoulder etc), but I always had this pain in my left side about a 2 dollar size coin area.I went to osteopath he said my left side shoulder was higher and i had impaired movement,plus a muscle knot where my pain was.He thought it could be also a disc.He sent me for massage therapy to losen everything up so he could try correcting my shoulder etc.Didn't work.

Since the ostepath kept twisting and turning me I started back on advil 400mg and Voltaren Gel on left back.I managed to feel better in general for a couple weeks then I started back on Zantac ,id get that nausea feeling from right below your breast bone and feeling like crap.I was always hungry to no matter what I ate.Everything else was fine BM,spit was ok no coffee grain looks ,no diarhea or vomiting ,not even headaches.

Went back to doctor last Monday because the ostepath said he couldnt do much for me go get MRI's.My doctor signed off on it and Tuesday I was in the tube for spine and shoulder MRI.I kept taking the advil,and gel plus I was eating what I wanted and Friday last week I went to eat a spicy club,fries with mayo,yeah I know.I was at work and my back like usual hurt so I took an advil,when I got home I asked my GF to rub me with Voltaren gel to.About 2 hours later I was lying down and feeling not so well and I had a funny taste in my mouth.I spit in the sink and tada blood (not full blood but little from the back of my throat).

Monday I was back at the doctors and he checked me up and said 1:stop all anti inflammatory 2:take these for one month (acid reducer I guess), 3: calm down and stop getting nervous (hadn't received mri results back yet. And he booked me a rendezvous July 3rd with a gastro specialist he thinks I may have a gastro or peptic ulcer.I also had some pain on my right upper back now ***?

This week I relaxed and Tuesday i got the good news the MRI came back positive that no spine/disc damages but I have a muscle injury and my dossier is now at a sports clinic under review I have to wait 2-3 weeks for consulation.

Here is what bothers me and im confused.......Now my right side hurts between shoulder blades,not like left where my neck tenses up also or anything ,but it hurts.I have a usual heartburn feeling,and im in general just not feeling to good ,like an upset stomach but near breastbone.I still spit blood when I wake up in the morning ,but during the day it seems better than last Friday.Im not eating much either which probably explains why I feel weaker ,I ate two yogurts today and 7 soda crackers,3 bottles of water.Last night I ate yogurts,and soda crackers with Manuka honey,and frozen yogurt.Im hungry though and id eat a whole cow if I could

So what do you guys think? Is the new pain in my right side from always compensating for my left side? Or an Ulcer/Hiatal hernia/cancer/gall bladder etc? Or am I in panic mode and should simply wait until July 3rd when I meet Gastro specialist? Or do you guys think the whole time I actually had ulcers and the MRI could be an old injury there seeing? Also could I have damaged my esophagus? all that acid? Today i've started taking L-Glucosamine,Aloe Vera gel for my Esophgus and im thinking of taking oilve leaf? Plus I eat Manuka honey now in case this was/is bacterial.Geez im tired mentally its been a long 4 months and im still in a grey zone.I have a feeling the doctor is gonna send me for an endoscopy and has anyone here has one? Does it really not even show because your sedated? so very tired..............
