Common Questions and Answers about Stomach ulcer symptoms nhs direct


Avatar n tn The first week especially. Abdominal cramps and bloating, I even called NHS direct cos' of the pain! I went back to see a different Doc after the first week of hell and he immediately suggested I have gallbladder problems for which he gave me Pro-banthine (a muscle spasm inhibitor). So i stopped the lansoprazole.
Avatar m tn My GP thinks it is some sort of stomach spasm (I think that is what she said) because as she put it I would have other symptoms if it was an ulcer. I just want this sorted as its making my life hell.
Avatar n tn To me it sounds like a food intolerance. The stomach problems, nausea, grumbling, bloating.. the docs call it IBS, but it's their way of saying they have no clue what it is.. they tell you to eat more of this or that but what they should be doing is telling you what you shouldn't be eating... GRAINS, Gluten is the biggest culprit for these problems... but other food intolerances can be the culprit.. start with cutting out gluten/wheat from your diet, see if it helps..
Avatar n tn I called NHS Direct and spoke to a nurse, she was very helpful in carming me down but said she obviously couldn't diagnose me over the phone. I also have an appointment with my doctor 5pm Monday. Am just worried that it's an STD that I have had since the beginning of the year! Obviously reading what everyone has written here, I'm feeling hopeful that it isn't this, but if not - then what it is??
Avatar n tn The food I was eating was actually fermenting into alcohol in my stomach, creating all of these symptoms. After taking mega doses of acidophilis I was %100 better in a couple of days!!!! Acidophilis is harmless, even in larger doses, therefore worth a shot if you can't find any other problem. Good luck!
Avatar f tn I think there must be a connection with digestion and the vagus nerve but what is the cause, the stomach acid irritating the nerve or the nerve making the stomach produce more acid and the symptoms. Hmm interesting , I hope this has helped and maybe we can start to understand our bodies and hopefully get some answers somewhere. Im glad I found these postings it sure has helped knowing that Im not imagining this.
Avatar n tn *Stomach ulcer (peptic ulcer) *Gastritis (inflammation of the stomach lining) Action to Take: Take an antacid or acetaminophen if necessary, but avoid aspirin, ibuprofen, and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Don't drink alcohol or smoke. If pain persists or quickly comes back, see your doctor.
Avatar n tn All of a sudden I started having symptoms as if I had a stomach virus....nausea, dizziness I have lost about 16 lbs. Anxiety now because I don't know what is wrong with me. It is severely effecting my everyday life. I can't drive, work, take care of my son without being consumed by these symptoms. I done several test and they are normal. Sometimes I feel like I am crazy. I've tried just to relax, relax, relax because the doctor says STRESS.
Avatar m tn What could the Hep B surface antigen with 17,000,000 viral load and no antibodies mean? Especially if my symptoms are not classic Hep B symptoms? 3. I've read a lot about oral thrush online, and almost every link goes straight to HIV. Well, I've been tested twice now, and I've been told by all my doctors and other online experts that I DO NOT have HIV. I also understand that thush in HIV-infected people doesn't happen until a later stage.
Avatar n tn (I include “symptoms absent” here because it may help doctors and other readers to eliminate potential conditions rather than just indicating the existing symptoms): Heartburn, indigestion, burning sensations from acid reflux [if acid reflux is present, it has to be silent reflux. Several months of PPI have no effect, whether I take them or not. On that basis, I would have thought if acid reflux was the cause of the symptoms, PPI would have curbed or eliminated it, but they haven’t.
544292 tn?1268886268 Severity of withdrawal can be estimated by considering that each 100 mg tramadol oral (hx daily use) will be roughly equivalent of 10 mg morphine (IV daily use) in severity of withdrawal symptoms. Differences are that standard opiate withdrawal seems to cause more physical illness (vomitting, diarhea, bone pain etc.) Tramadol withdrawall seems to cause significantly more anxiety and emotional distress.
544292 tn?1268886268 Today my stomach (Intestines actually, which have thousands of opiate receptors ... BTW ... and they aren't happy about the no more drugs policy, not at all!) feels like someone strong punched me solidly and HARD. But just once. Not ten times like on day 17 and day 18. It also doesn't feel like I have been stabbed 17 times with a dagger in my gut. So, this is progress. It is. What it is. And that is all. I just accept it.
Avatar f tn Yet lately I am suffering from what appears to be symptoms of colon or stomach cancer and I immediately have difficulty sleeping, feeling tense all day and dreading the "worse". I browse the 'net for information and and it tends to make me feel worse, particularly about those cases of young cancer patients. I know those are only the very very small minority (often with family history or a long period of ignoring symptoms) and chances are I will be fine.
Avatar n tn Two weeks ago around 6pm I had an episode of multiple symptoms that precipitated very quickly, within about three minutes, without warning. These included feeling very weak, shaking all over, light headed/dizzy,numbness/tingling on fingertips and toes, slight shortness of breath and chill. I felt like passing out, flushed. I figured it was from not eating so I grabbed a burger and it seemed to alleviate the problems. Well, it happened again around the same time of day a few days later.
Avatar n tn im trying to think as sensibly as possible and I reckon I could be over reacting because im not vomiting nor do I have a runny flu like symptoms are sinusie ones so maybe it is just flu after all..........I have just sent an email to the tampon manufacturers and have asked there advice....I will let you know what they reply back. Why I can't remember all the important details is a mystery to me...
4865450 tn?1361298133 The side effects are soreness at the site of injection and you can get fainting when you get the shot (mostly in children) so you are supposed to sit for 15 minutes. You can get flu like symptoms for a day or so. There are very rare side effects 1 in a million got a blood clot and there was 1 in a million that died or they are not sure but think could have died from the injection. I'm sure there is a much higher risk of unprotected sex with someone you don't know very well, LOL.
Avatar n tn There are some periods throughout the day where it's not laboured and I feel as if I breathe normally, but then it creeps up on me and I have to start yawning again. My nose feels very clogged all the time and my chest, stomach, and back muscles feel very constricted when breathing. It's especially noticeable when I am working out...especially running and lifting weights. I have to stop every once in a while just to yawn (frustrating) to stop from getting dizzy.
Avatar f tn I've read about botox shots and surgery, but I'm afraid that they might just make things worse (bad as my condition is, I can see that there are worse things). I'd like to avoid stomach fundoplication (that's when they basically make origami out of your stomach; painful, takes a long time to heal and can make eating difficult). Natural supplements and remedies have not eliminated the problem. Am I going to have this problem for the rest of my life?
Avatar n tn htm I know you didn't say anything about dizziness/vertigo/nausea but I did not have any symptoms of this (after 4 months of other inner ear symptoms) but then 3 days ago after using the neti pot on my back sinuses (on the nurse's advice), the fullness in my ears actually seemed to increase and I had dizziness, some nausea and some slight vertigo for two hours afterwards and since then I have had some spells of the same.
1647691 tn?1363727302 We are fortunate enough to tick all the boxes for further nhs funding but we have to wait for 6 months before more treatment in order to qualify. We didn't have any frozen so it'll be the whole shebang again. Lucky hubbie with my mood swings again!!
