Male 27 years old.
october 1 - had Tylenol and coffee without food. kept throwing up and puked blood. went to emergency and did blood test. the first set of test revealed high presence of enzymes in the blood however and suspected pancreatitis. however since there was no symptom was asked to check blood again the next day and everything was fine. consulted a gastreology specialist who did further blood testing the week after and confirmed the pancreas was fine
mid october - abdominal pain continued and added to it was chest pain so family physician has prescribed some gastric medication. conducted blood test, ultrasound of stomach, ekg of heart. everything was normal exception heart rate was at 59 bpm. was prescribed dexilant. its been almost 3 weeks since ive been on dexilant. 2 weeks ago cold developed and i did not take any cold medication as it reacts with dexilant. i let the cold sit for one week visited by family physician and he prescribed robitussin so that it does not react with dexilant. since the cold ive experienced upper back pain left and right. pain the joints and occasional numbness. during this whole ordeal i have lost about 4kg in one month. my online research has led to various symptoms so im wondering what else should i get checked for

Thanks for the additional information. I am writing the answer for you and will get back to you in 5-7 minutes. If you get a phone call request, you may ignore it as that is an automated site trigger. Thank you.

ok thank you. i will definitely follow up. yes i have been a bit more stressed than usual regarding various issues going on in my personal life so that could be it too. i will still suggest these tests to my family physician and follow up. thank you again. this in a way gives me some relief when 2 experts are saying it may not be something as serious because my family physician thinks the same.

You are very welcome.

These symptoms do not point to any serious medical issue so you may relax.

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.
