I have had an upper endoscopy and a colonoscopy. They said the upper endoscopy just showed a little bit of gastritis and it should not cause all these symptoms. I have had many lab tests. They said they were negative. I can't keep a food diary because I can't eat.
I'm sorry Doctor, I don't mean to be difficult, but I have tried to eat soups, including chicken noodle. I can't eat jello or puddings. Even they cause abdominal pain. I had an Ensure for dinner today and soon after, I got the terrible abdominal pain.
The doctor has me on Protonix but it doesn't help.
Believe it or not, I was on Nexium and Carafate, and he took me off and put me on Protonix. I had that cocktail in one of my ER visits. My GI doctor won't give me anything for the pain. He wants me to get pain relief from the Reglan. Does not reduce the pain. I still can't eat with the Reglan and it doesn't relieve the pain.
The cocktail they gave me in the ER helped me that night, but the pain came back. I don't know if I can get the viscous lidocaine myself. My doctor acts like I'm not in as much pain as I am.
