Lister

Ugh Displaced Mind

Recommended Posts

http://www.medicinenet.com/omeprazole/article.htm

ok i found stuff about it shoulda thought to google it i feel stupid now lol

hmmmm i dont know what the doctor this i have out of the things it treats anyone got ideas? i would say ulcer since it goes away after i eat but since there is no blood in my stools i dont think so

gah should not have read all of that i desided to look up Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, and now im scared crappless, i hope i dont got that jeesus canceres tumors and crap omg...... but when i googled Zollinger-Ellison syndrome it was talking about knawging pain in upper abdomen and that is what i have ahhhhh ok i wont try to get worked up over this without having the apointment on monday first

the more i read the more i get scared, i dont know what i have i match all the symptoms for petic ulcers, zollinger ellison syndrom, and stomic cancer now im crying because i dont even see how a doctor will be able to figure it out- i just made myself really upset....... im gonna go lay down im tearing up

also from what i have read so far, taking things like prilosec can mask a problem if it happens to be a seriuse one it can make it "disapear" temporarly while secrectly its getting worse

The last thing you need now is an anxiety attack! Do you know how to do breathing for relaxation? I think you should try this; it may actually help your stomach pain. Do you know about the "stomach brain"? There is a close relationship between the nervous system & the stomach.... that may be part of your problem right now since you are under a lot of stress. If the Prilosec gets you through until Monday that's all you need from it at the moment. You should definitely see the doctor then & discuss all your symptoms & the things you fear they may indicate.

i have the prilosec, but im not taking it until i go to the doctor anyways, it says on the package dont take if you have unexplained weight loss, and thats the whole reason the dx wants a apointment with me on monday so i figure i should wait until he figures out the weight loss

as for breathing exerisis yes i know some but they hurt me to do, whenever i exhale deep it drives my stomic crazy

Just try to slow your breathing. It doesn't have to be super deep as long as the breaths are slow, it sends a neurological signal that is relaxing. It really helps me when I get very stressed out.

Good thinking on the Prilosex/weight loss... wonder why your doc recommended it though???

You'll be okay, Lister, I think a lot of your pain may be linked to anxiety. Have you talked to your doctor about this at all? I find my stomach burns when I am very anxious or upset. Not saying it's the only cause, but it makes it much worse. Then it's a vicious cycle because you worry about the pain.

is there really a reason to? i meen yeah it hurts, but as long as i eat constantly i keep it under controle, the er is ment for people who are in seriuse condition, im still able to get up in the morning at 5 am get ready for work bike there and work all day and still be up right now. i meen i dont think the er is the answer as much as i would want to go there to try to get fast answers, but last time i went there ( for this exact reason) they took a poop test found nothing so they did a catscan found nothing and then sent me home.... so i meen its really not worth the money i would rather wait tell monday for my doc even though im going to kill myself worrying until then

I've only used the ER when I was having an anaphylactic reaction, or when my kids were bleeding. Otherwise, they're not really set up for subtle diagnoses, & Lister's problem sounds like more than most could handle. So long as you don't think it's internal bleeding, & you say you don't, right?

well i meen it to me is a possibility, but i have been having these pains since april and back in june they did a hemocult card, a poop analysis and a bactera/blood stool analysis and nothing was found so if there was internal bleeding i would think it would show up hopefully.... gah i wish i knew what was wrong with me ( and i really hope its not tumor/cancer related im 21 im to young to be looking towards the end of my life) i just want to live a normal life again :(

oh and lorka i realised that my last post could have seemed like a attack against your advice, it was not ment to be that way simply saying that the er is for emergiancys but thank you for your consern

yah i think or atleast i hope my dx will come thru on monday and find something, i meen hes a smart man afterall he is the one that though of celiac disease not me

Lister; Sorry you are having a rough time tonight. Sounds to me like you may be having gastritis which is inflammation of the stomach lining. with medication and eating bland foods it will clear up in a few weeks.

the gurgling could be from acid in you stomach or intestines. Am sure the Dr. knew about Prilosec or he would not have told you to take it. I followed thru/ with your omeprazole Url and it took me to this: If you are uninsured to call Phizer at 1-866-702-2400..also here is url www.pfizerhelpfulanswers.com this is a pharmaceutical co. and some of them do let people get meds free. It may be that other pharmaceutical co. do this too.

I too have had some of the eye problems, was hard for me to read from my computer screen yesterday pm., but maybe I had been on too long..its ok today. Also anything acidic like tomato,or fruit juices would aggravate the acid in your stomach. Also some people have sweets turn to acid after in stomach for awhile.

I t seemed that happened to me when I had gastritis quite sometime ago, there were different meds to take then and they worked but took a bit of time. Also if you can put on some music that is soothing that might help you, some like ice and some like heat for tummy pain. I you are reading this on sun. am I hope you had a good night and will feel better. :) evie

Lister, 90% of the problems you describe can be caused or aggravated my stress.

Stress causes more stomach acid and more stomach acid causes your symptoms and stresses you out....

Everyone gets 'worrying' things ... if its a one off its not a problem but if you stress over it you will just make the acid problems worse.

pick up some sweet potatoes if you can & bake one for dinner - I put mine in a casserole dish & poke a hole in it with a fork, put a glass lid on the casserold dish & bake in the microwave - time depends on size of potato. If you bake two, just put the other one in the refrig, then you can slice it & heat the slices in a skillet with some butter or oil & then sprinkle some sugar on it. really good, especially when the slices get all crunchy in the butter or oil.

I am glad you are doing better today, I take a B12 everyday, you probably have a DQ1 gene. & that stomach noise is enough to make you panic, it is so weird when it does that & you can hear it & feel it.

I really think that is because you are not getting enough calories & that is part of the losing weight thing. Just remember that our bodies are tougher than you think.

wishing you a good day at the doctors tomorrow.

are you sure? people can often be mis-guided. when i was trying hard to gain weight, i realized i wasn't even clearing 2000 a day, which is a minimum at most for me, as i was a runner, too.

have you ever tried counting for a day or two, just to see?

It might not even be calories but a single nutrient.....

Lister, with all due respect you do eat a lot of nutritionally poor quality foods like chips and stuff but you also obviously make an effort....

Why don't you do yourself a food diary.....

Since there are loads of us here who are happy and willing to help you could just set yourself up with a free blog and use that as a diary.

It would enable you to see what you are actually eating and also look for nutritional holes....

Everything positive you do will ease the stress.... the most stressful thing is feeling like you are not in control but really you are... its just the whole gluten-free thing starts off so confusing.
