Please help me I'm sick all the time!!!?

Postby arledge » Tue Apr 12, 2011 10:20 am

I am a 40 yr old female and I have for about 8 months been having stomach issues. Pain in the stomach, hearburn, gas and belching and I'm always tired..alot. I saw my dr in April who said acid reflux and to try Prilosec, which I did. The symptoms subsided after treatment. Now they are back, I recently found out my moms aunt died of stomach cancer and her symptoms were exact to mine. I am scared to death because when I mentioned that to my dr. he did not seem alarmed and all my labs came back normal. Any advice will help. Thanks.

Lack of enzymes/LOW stomach acid are the main reasons for acid reflux and can also cause gastritis (inflammation of the stomach). When you don't have enough stomach acid, you cannot absorb vitamin B12 and other essential vitamins. This will cause fatigue and other health problems. You may have the H Pylori bacteria, which causes low stomach acid also, but if this is ruled out, i highly recommend trying digestive enzyme supplements with each meal. Some digestive enzymes contain betaine hydrochloride to improve stomach acid.

Acid reflux does NOT occur when the acid production is suppressed. That is the basis of the treatment of acid reflux. PPI are prescribed for acid reflux.These med suppress the production of acid and provide symptom relief.

Stomach Cancer Acid Reflux, Gastroenteritis and a whole bunch of other illnesses all have very similar symptoms You could potentially have stomach cancer but it's really unlikely that you have stomach cancer seeing as there is a 1/200 chance, my guess is you probably just have the stomach flu or something. I would advise that you go see your doctor again.

Make sure that your doctor tests your blood.
