More tests...

Saw my friendly Gastroenterologist today. Advised I keep taking Carafate (Sucralfate), but only twice a day, for about 6 weeks...(seeing as I don't tolerate things like Nexium, Pariet & even Zantac).
He's given me a request for an Ultrasound of my Upper Abdomen. Clinical Notes: Mildly elevated Liver Function Tests.
I'm also booked for a Gastroscopy :D

Hi Meryl - good that investigations are underway. What do you take the meds for that you mention above? what are your gastro issues?

Gastro-oesophageal reflux, small hiatus hernia, gastritis. Had a couple of nights with acute reflux pain on lying down. Think it was associated with a virus. Had nausea, malaise & all over muscle tenderness.

Sometimes I just have to smell something & my oesophagus & stomach start burning, to the point where I will become nauseous & almost vomit :eek:

There's obviously an autoimmune element to this plus I need to avoid aspirin & prednisone.
 
That sounds awful Meryl - so sorry you are suffering with this. Sending:hug:
Justy.
 
hello, just wanted to say i hope your test find out what is wrong and that it isnt serious..i have alot of gastro issues also and its very hard...ibs reflux its always unpredicable and can be embarassing..
take care and hope you are doing well
