I have an inflammed and hardened stomach; shortness of breath and mild chest pains

Comment from: diva, 65-74 Female (Patient) Published: September 16

After eating a hot curry, I regurgitated food and was in pain from my ribcage to under my shoulder blade. After five days, I went and saw a doctor who sent me in for an ultrasound for suspected gallstones. Everything came back fine. Now I'm awaiting another diagnosis when I go to see doctor tomorrow. Taking Zantac and Mylanta give me some relief, but the symptoms are there all the time.

I first started with feeling bloated and felt the sensation of being full at nights only. I was diagnosed with H pylori and took antibiotics. I was under control with Nexium once daily for about 2 years, but suddenly I started feeling nauseous, the sensation of fullness only at nights and feel like if food will come up. I had the endoscopy done, blood work and ultra sound. Endoscopy showed I have gastritis, blood work was fine (H pylori was not an issue, since it can come back) and ultra sound (no gall stones). I was better the following month taking ranitidine twice daily. Two months after I have symptoms again, nauseous, burping and feel full at night. Maybe is that I drink coffee everyday, or maybe because I'm on birth control pill. Who knows what it is now. I will see a doctor again. I'm thinking I need to be on a strict diet.
