Hey everyone! I am new to this site and happen to come across it trying to find answers and I have found it very helpful!
So here is my story…
i have been having health issues and trying to figure out the issue. Last month I was in hospital for high BP which I am treated for and never had BP issues but test came back everything normal. The only thing they can link it too was I was on the iron pill for anemia and I was having side effect.
a week after that I went to ENT for severe sinus issues. The doctor went down my nose to my throat with a camera and said I had sever post nasal drip and acid reflux. But I never really notice issues maybe only here and there and it’s like once he went down he disturbed something because after that I started feeling the symptoms.
then fast forward few Weeks after I’ve been nauseous everyday and started loosing my appetite. Then started having alot of stomach issues. Burping a lot. Getting a lot of trapped gas under my breast and my back. So went to gastro and he thinks it could all be happening from my post nasal (which I never heard of) but he did say it also sounds like gerd. So he put me on pantoprazole and if things get worse then he wants to do a endoscopy.
fast forward a week after ther. The morning sickness got worse and called out like 3x in 2 weeks. I’m still nauseous in the morning currently but some days are better than others.I work in a pharmacy and the pharmacist suggest I get tested for h.pylori because if was having all symptoms. Sick. Loss appetite. Feeling things going on in stomach. A lot of burping and gas.
I found out the urgent care by my tested for it. We’ll find out they don’t know more. But when she was going through my symptoms she said it sounds like ibs. The day before I went there my bowel movement was off. I would feel like I have diarrhea but then when I go I was constipated so she suggest premier protein since I don’t have appetite andprescribe me zofran (which helps alot for the nausea) and then ever since I left there I been constipated for a week now. The first two days I was very constipated and in a lot of pain when trying to go, I couldn’t believe the pain I was going through. Then start taking Doctor to see it and now I can go once or twice in the morning but then that’s it and it’s still kind of constipated feeling but no pain. And when it comes out, it’s kind of like a hard mush and like a yellow brown. I never had a problem, drinking coffee or eating ice cream. And all of a sudden when I was drinking coffee reading ice cream this week, I was getting severe pains in my stomach, which I never had before. I know someone that has IBS see and she said everything I’m going through is what she went through, especially the morning sickness. It bothers me a lot because it affects my every day life like trying to work. I’m just always so nauseous. The Zofran does help. It’s just some days are worse than others. Right now I’m just waiting on my doctor to call me for my endoscopy appointment. My primary also is sending me for the H. pylori test which is a week and a half away because I have to be off my pantoprazole. Do anything that really helps right now is my Lanta and Alka-Seltzer gas and heartburn chewables
The only thing that has been helping me is the Alka-Seltzer chewables because ever since I’ve been taking them I no longer get gas pins
sorry if this is very long, but just trying to get a good idea on what I’ve been through and if others have gone through the same thank you
