Avatar f tn I was recently diagnosed with barrett's esophagus. I still have stomach pain even though I am on Omerprazole 20mg. Why is that happening? The Dr. didnt tell me anything after the test except to take the Omerprazole. Could something else be wrong?
Avatar n tn old female recently diagnosed with Barrett's esophagus after 4-5 months of chest pain, food getting stuck half-way down, etc. This diagnosis has really scared me and I am is a state of shock re: the risk of adenocarcinoma (from 1-10% varies with literature.) I also have coronary heart disease so this whole episode was really scary although after 9 yrs. with CAD I was able to recognize this was not heart pain.
Avatar f tn Been diagnosed with fibro for abt last 8 yrs. and I have these spells every so often. Get gassy, constipated & passing only small, pellet -like stools with pain in thighs ( inside ) and back across hips. Sometimes have burning in mouth, esophagus and in abdomen as if I have a lot of acid.. Until I get bm's regulated again, nothing seems right. I suspect that I don't drink enough water may be one cause.---- something that is easy to remedy if i just remember to do it.
554442 tn?1221238825 Fibro does not cause joint pain or swelling. The pain from Fibromyalgia is produced in the soft tissues of the body, including the muscles and tendons. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/fibromyalgia/AR00056 Question: Why Don't NSAIDs Work for Fibromyalgia Pain? Why don't pain relievers like Motrin, Advil and Aleve work against the pain of fibromyalgia? Answer: It's a common misconception that fibromyalgia is an inflammatory or rheumatological condition, but it is not.
Avatar f tn Extreme physical exhaustion. Have been in hospital 3 times for chest pain and arm pain thinking I was having a heart attack. Most recent visit excruciating pain under right breast in ribs. He sent me to a rheumatologist because he believes it is fibromyalgia. The rheumatologist is adamantly against diagnosing pts w/fibro. Went back to neur. because the headaches are so intense I am now on a medical leave. He ordered a spinal tap to rule out ms and lymes. I am now awaiting the results.
4188993 tn?1350829381 Blood pressure used to be 150/92 for my norm and it dropped to 90/60 57bpm for 3-4 weeks and went to normal readings. I started having trouble swallowing and gastro did scope and said my esophagus was spasming and I had a bad gall bladder. I had it removed and developed muscle twitches all over body, glands in neck swells, lymphnodes swell up and little lung infections that seem to move throughout the day from one place to another.
Avatar n tn I can't advise you about pain relief or fibromyalgia. I saw your question on the MS forum and came here to answer it since you don't list MS as one of your problems. I'm sure someone in this community will be along to offer fibro specific info.
Avatar m tn Hi, I ama 39yr old female who has pallindromic arthritis, fibromyalgia and severe stomach issues. I have had bad nausea and vomiting for about 2 1/2 years. I live in a small community and we have limited resources as far as our medical care goes so I feel lie this has been drug out forever without getting any GOOD answers. I was just released from hospital where they ran some new tests with this last attack.

Avatar f tn I have a couple of issues but i was diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 6 months ago, it can also be called chronic diffuse myofacial ( sp) pain syndrome. Good and Bad news... There are meds that treat but don't cure and many doctors as well as people think it is a bogus diagnosis. I am not one of them.

Avatar f tn for the difficulty sleeping can't be found and therefore, the sleep aids are a necessity. In my case, I have several chronic pain issues, including fibromyalgia, and one of the main symptoms of fibro is difficulty sleeping. 99% of the time, it is my pain that keeps me from being able to sleep and even when I am able to get to sleep, I have a really hard time staying asleep because of it.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and myofascial pain syndrome. At the same time I rec'd the GERD dx. Recently I had a ba swallow and two weeks ago an egd w/ bx. I got the call this week that it is probably Barrett's esophagus (some slides not back). Of course with my fibro comes reactive hypoglycemia. I feel like a junkie! I need guidance with diet, dietary restrictions or advice and the long term outcome for Barrett's, such as follow up over the years.
Avatar n tn This year many long term symptoms have been finally identified. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and myofascial pain syndrome. At the same time I rec'd the GERD dx.

Avatar f tn I do not yet have a dx of MS, had a proable for while,some concerns on MRI, and head pain got me this far. so since then have been symtomatically treated for pain, and fibromyalgia,which just takes a the bite out of it! anyway I have just gone through all sorts of GI testing, and all came back normal,i have had abdominal x-ray,ct csan ,gallbladder ultasound, vaginal ultrasound,gall bladder function test, endoscopic and colonoscopy.
Avatar n tn Hi, I've have had a painful and debilitating pain in the middle where the rib cage starts to fan out and downward. I don't know if it's the part where my esophagus ends or what but it's right in that area. I gone often to a heart doctor and have no problems that they know of. I've been walking bent over for about 2 months. I've been constipated for years and everything's been backed up. I've done a colonic cleanse but it doesn't seem to have helped.
Avatar f tn I am now having pain in the upper part of my chest, some tenderness in my breasts(both) and under my arms. Are these symptoms of an Iodine deficiency? I am so frustrated since even after all the lab work, xray, ultrasound and MRI, we are not closer to an answer.... I am scheduled for an appt with an ENT next week..but don't even think he can help since it doesn't feel like my throat it feels more like my neck, glands or something along those lines...but nothing shows in the MRI....
Avatar f tn Mobility is excellent but I am still in a lot of pain. If I am on my feet during the day, I have increased pain and the knee is hot and slightly swollen. I was faithful to rehab and am now anxious to be more active. It's so discouraging.
Avatar n tn , the second thing that really comes to mind is Fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia is a rheumatic disease present in approximately 1 in 100 people. It is more commonly present in women ages 20-50 and is characterized by widespread pain in muscles, tendons or other fibrous or connective tissues resulting in pain without weakness. Diagnosis It is important to note that there is no specific blood test that will diagnose this disease.
Avatar n tn I do take birth control pills and have read that they can cause breast pain. Although the pain isn't in my entire left breast, it is in the upper part of it, but more in my chest then in my breast. The pain feels like it is just under the surface of my skin. There are no physical changes to my breast or my skin. Has anyone had these symptoms before?
Avatar n tn I fear at times that its my heart but the tests say otherwise...and if its my esophagus why does the pain spread to back and neck...also the pain occurs any time..especially during early morning hours and I have started experiencing dizziness at times..
Avatar n tn If it were more widespread, it could be a symptom of the complex condition known as fibromyalgia. The recommendation to see a pain specialist seems appropriate. Perhaps he would have some diagnostic tools that have not yet been utilized in assessing your condition. The esophageal and stomach problems are unfortunately beyond the scope of this community.
Avatar n tn I have a mild Hyperparathyroidism; I've been getting occassional neck pain (side of neck) which seems to happen after taking large doses of VitD. Has anyone else experienced this; is it a sign of a possible tumor (Primary Hyperpara)?
Avatar n tn I experience unusual burning, tingling, prickling throughout the body, but it all started with what felt like joint swelling and pain similar to fibromyalgia. That has disapated to some degree; now I have sharp shooting pains and the parenthesis. My problem is it is on both sides of the body and I get it everywhere. I get the slight burn or tingly sensation on my face but it is right around the chin on both sides like a chin strap.
Avatar n tn do you have any other suggestions on what could be causing the URQ Pain and extreme nausea, tenderness just under the rib cage toward the esophagus area, it is affecting my quality of life, my daughter is upset because I am always laying down (it hurts worse to sit. I have an appointment with a surgeon on April 5th but really hate the idea of exploratory surgery. I just want somewhere to start so it can be resolved.
155534 tn?1275415855 I have GERD and that's not the same type of feeling I'm having...Thisisn't a burnung pain but rather a very sharp stabbing pain that gets worst when I breathe deeply,cough or lean foward...It helps to hold my chest and brace for the anticipated pain...But I will definately be going back to the Dr. for this..even if it's just for my own peace of mind..Thank you for the advice..I will be sure to bring these things up at my next visit.. Would a pulminary embolism or pleurisy show up in an x-ray???
Avatar m tn I just have to get yearly endoscopy's to check up on it, which one is coming up. Now, for the past month, I've been having pain in my upper left abdomen that has been getting progressively worse. The pain has now spread to my back and other parts of my abdomen and into my chest. It is so bad now that it keeps me up at night. I've noticed for the past two nights that my arms and abdomen have been retaining fluid.
