I am new and just wanted to add my story to all the others. I was diagnosed with esophagitis and mild gastric inflammation about a week ago. I have been dealing with this for a year and just didnt know what it was. In factI am still not so sure it may not be my heart along with everything else...it is so hard to tell. It has just gotten worse and worse and I finally went and had it checked out via an endoscopy. All the time I just thought it was acid reflux that just kept getting worse and didnt get better even on PPI's. I have intense burningin my chest and upper abdomen and gastric upset like most, but I am also dealing with serious back pain and pain down my arms that is an every day occurance and some days it is miserable and some days it gets so bad I want to go to the ER....but I have done that twice and they say it is not my heart. (ekg's good and echo stress test and bloodwork ok) But it sure feels like my heart alot! Does anyone else have this kind of thing going on with their gastritis? I would love to hear things that worked for others. All the pills do not seem to do much for me. I have been on prevacid, zantac, prilosec, carafate you name it and things just keep getting worse. I also get this nauseated tender place in the pit of my stomach below my breast bone and if I rub it at night laying up in bed, my stomach starts gurgling and it seems to help. Also alot of belching? I am just so tired of feeling miserable ALL the time.
