Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board


Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


They need to find out where your bleeding from. Could you have a bleeding ulcer? Pretty much for me, I get bloated really easily, get hunger pains even when I shouldn't get hungry, vomit occassionally, nausea, upper mid abdominal pain, and can't eat sometimes. It could be linked to your GI tract. Doc needs to figure out where the bleeding is coming from even if treating you with iron suppliments. Have your b-12 checked cause it sounds like you should. Low b-12 is linked to low stomach acid, instead of too much, both conditions cause gerd. I have gerd, an ulcer, severe inflammation and a very low b-12 & vit d. I haven't had the ph study to check to see if the reflux is due to too much or too little acid. When your acid reflux pills don't work, that's an idea, surgery too could help clear it up, but I wouldn't want to go there except as a last option. But you can have surgery when you feel like hell, I did, it didn't feel too good but I survived it. Pretty much, you likely need an endoscopy. That surgical procedure can cause your esophagus to hurt afterwards, but it only lasts a couple of days, if it even does happen, I've only had one endo cause me pain, and I have had alot of them done.

Hey thanks for the reply! Much appreciated. I know that I am not bleeding from anywhere, not unless the doc has missed something . There is as yet no ulcer, but they have confirmed severe gerd via endoscopy 4 years ago, done all the ph testing and am sat here waiting for fundoplication surgery this summer. They reckon as the top meds wont hold the gerd in check I should have the op. Bit scary, but I am at the end of my tether .
Off to the doc again today to get my latest blood results. One doc says my b12 is fine, another says something different..... and my ferritin is superlow.

Thank so much for the encouragement and words of advice. This place is a gem - at least we know that others really do understand here, unlike one doc who told me "you just have to live with it, love"!! They really dont 'get it' do they ?
Glad of your help. Thanks :)
