Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board

Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index

Hi Everyone,

I am new here and have posted this same message on the digestive and anaemia boards. I am at my wits end at how I am feeling and TBH a bit scared too, which is not helping my symptoms.

I had a bout of 'inflammed' stomach about three years ago, it was left undiagnosed but I was given omeprazole which eventually cleared it up. I was having acid reflux, stomach pains, burping, bloating and a burning sensation. Since then I would have the odd bout of heartburn but managed it with antacids. Then just before christmas I got another severe bout. It went on for a few months and i was again prescribed omeprazole. The pain cleared up but it seemed to take longer this time.

I was left with extreme tiredness, breathlessness (even when i'm not excersising) and heart palpatations. These are scaring me very much and my fear is probably making it worse. I'm finding I can't walk as far as I get so tired, and a little dizzy.

I went back to my doctor who did some blood tests and general organ function they all came back normal, apart from my MVC count (B12 and folate) was at the higher end of the scale (98). The doctor also did a general examination and said everything was fine (including feeling my tummy).

He seems to think its all in my head and wanted to prescribe me anti depressants, but I don't feel depressed.

I am anxious about it all, they don't feel like panic attacks (one or more of the symptoms is always in the background).

I am not suffering any pain in my tummy and the acid feeling has all but gone, but i'm just left now feeling so lethargic with little energy. Is this normal for stomach complaints?

Thankyou for reading.
