well if the ultrasound of the gall bladder was fine .. and all the other tests as you mentioned then only thing left is HIDA scan which looks at the contractility of the gall bladder i beleive your doctor did biopsies with the endoscopy to rule out celiac as well . <br /> <br />If everything checks ok then it is functional GI disorder which should respond to amitriptyline.

HE SAID HE DID NOT HAVE TO DO ANY BIOPSIES HE SAID EVERYTHING LOOKED GOOD.IS IT HARD TO EAT IF THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE GALLBLADDER,AND DOES YOUR STOMACH HURT AND HAVE A BURNING SENCATION.DO YOU THINK IT COULD BE CANCER OF THE STOMACH.EVEN THO HE DID A ENDOSCOPY IN AGUST.MY SISTERINLAW IS A NURSE SHE SAID HE WOULD HAVE SEEN SOMETHING WHEN HE DID THE ENDOSCOPY.I AM NOT LOOSING WEIGHT AND I STILL CAN EAT.PLEASE BE HONEST I HAVE HAD YOU BEFORE AND I THINK YOU ARE GOOD.
Expert:  Salar replied 5 years ago.
well people can still eat with gall bladder disease but get episodes of nausea and bad abdominal pain on ongoing basis.. burning sensation is usually not a common presentation though. if he did nt see anything on endoscopy then stomach cancer is unlikely. it may be worth while to get tested for H pylori infection.

WITH ME HAVING IBS CAN THAT CAUSE MY STOMACH HURTING AND BURNING.I SOME TIMES GET BURNING SENCATION IN THE CHES LIKE IAM HAVING A HEART ATTACK.I HEARD IF I HAD STOMACH CANCER IT WOULD HAVE BEEN SEEN WHEN THE ENDOSCOPY WAS PERFORMED,PLUS I HEARD IT WOULD BE IN THE STOMACH FOR AWHILE IS HIS TRUE.I REALLY APRESIATE YOUR PATINCE.DO YOU AGREE WITH ALL 5 OF MY DOCTORS THAT IAM HEALTHY.
Expert:  Salar replied 5 years ago.
well I ave not examined you and not read reports myself but from the description and presentation it does seem that you had all types of test done and have been diagnosed as IBS which is a benign disease. the chest pain and heart attack feeling could be from acid reflux, panic attack or anxiety . stomach cancer should have been picked up on endoscopy . It seems that you are healthy .. if continues to have problem amitriptyline or sucrafate can be added on as needed basis by your doctor.
