I have a question about my strange symptoms that have started happening lately. Whenever I drink water or liquids I have symptoms like burping, bloating, stomach growling, throat gurgling and a weird sensation in my throat like a lump or something is there.
Recently I have been diagnosed with esophagitis and I'm taking prilosec 40 mg, also herbs like ginger, licorice root, slippery elm it's gotten rid of heartburn acid reflux symptoms that I had before but now I have these. Do you have any idea what these is
from because I'm confused and frustrated and can you give me some advice about what to do I would greatly appreciate it.

Hi. We can continue after this if you'd like but this sounds like an H pylori stomach infection. That can be detected with a stool sample or a breath test and it can be eradicated with a course of antibiotics. I suggest you see your doctor for the screening test

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
