well i did the breath test but I was already on 40MG nexium then so likelihood of false negative is high
I have been diagnosed back in late 2010 with mild gastritis and a bit of reflux via gastroscopy but no bacteria
but my GI treated me with triple therapy anyway and it went away
this time I just went to the GP and he diagnosed me via symptoms alone ... I had a comprehensive blood test everything came back normal including celiac and inflammatory markers?
I am just wondering if I need another gastroscopy if nexium is not working. Main symptoms are burping and bloating and sometimes pain (this started only after I had nexium, but also coincidentally after I gave in and ate a tim tam)
just a little past 3 weeks
I struggle with anxiety so I'm not sure if that alone can prevent medication from working
i have had high stress for the past year
in 2010 also a period of super high stress
I am booked in to see a GI in two weeks, but in the meantime I am wondering if nexium worked (with triple therapy) in 2010, is there a reason it won't work? Is it because of my stress levels preventing it from working?
No, just the breath test
well i'm concerned that now i experience random pains too when I didn't before I started nexium and I thought nexium was supposed to make me better, but then my anxiety has been high so ...
I don't smoke, drink alcohol or caffeine usually
even when I'm well
does this still sound like gastritis to you after my descriptions? and if you say it's ok to take the lexotan, I will use it when necessary, I just didn't want it to inflame my stomach anymore if that's the problem ...
and if it is gastritis, how long does it last ??
well I suppose it makes me a little less stressed to know it can take a long time
i was stressing over how long it is taking me and I'm not feeling better especially on treatment. 4 - 6 weeks do you mean this is with medication?
ok doctor, I will leave a positive feed back now. Thanks
