So recently my diverticulitis was in a flare-up, now I’m over it but onto the second phase of what seems to be a pattern. It’s one of those personal health anomalies I should have recorded before now. Newest symptom on the progression through the phases is heartburn/GERD with any bending over a good chance for the reflux to happen. Continual burned feeling all the way to the back of my throat with lump feeling in my throat. Ugh all of this means doctor will want to schedule a gastroscopy exam and I’m unsure as to the need when all it will mean is comparison of results from previous scoping. Newest med has so many rules on when to take in regards to eating and other meds. I basically need to give up eating so the meds can work for several days to heal my esophagus before going to the bland diet slowly. But to me it seems a cycle with both GERD and diverticulitis involved and oh, did I mention the headaches too, well they’re fantastic and immensely painful on their own but again another symptom of some cycle that only puzzles my physician and frustrates me. I’m doing as instructed and not going into the light.
Question for you all- How many of you are dealing with a chronic pain condition that may have a "label" but there is no clear causes or treatments available? Why are so many of us in pain and what is causing all this untreatable pain in so many people? Why are we all suffering? Ideas? Comments? Theories? xo
