had blood panel done 3 months ago. at the time everything was normal. blood pressure I check daily and usually between 130-120 over 60-70. As far as specifically checking for sugars I'm not sure if its covered in the blood panel. the reason for the MRI was to out rule the possibility for tumors or anything that may be causing the headaches and numbness in the face . No surgeries no diseases always been generally healthy my doctor says its anxiety and gave me Klonoplin but i took them a few times but I'm convinced that the symptoms are causing me to get anxious. Not the other way around. Yes bowels are regular and my eating habits are refular. I'm 5'9" and 195 lbs with about 12% body fat give or take. I've been plugging in my symptoms everywhere and I'm worried about it being something to do with my pancreas. Thinking of going to a diagnosis center

Brief Answer: Antacid medicine with blood sugars will help Detailed Answer: Hi.Thanks for writing us back. Mild pain in throat, acid reflux and gagging are suggestive of acidity (acid peptic disease).This can be relieved by taking proton pump inhibitor (Tab.Aciphex 20mg) for 2 weeks everyday morning half-an-hour before food.Avoid spicy/oily foods. You are having a body mass index which is still fairly okay(falls under overweight). I strongly feel that the blood sugars both fasting and postprandial have to be done.Since frequent urination, tiredness and weight loss are suggestive of early diabetes - due to decreased insulin secretion by pancreas(assuming that your thyroid levels are normal). Do you have a family history of diabetes? If your sugars are normal then you may kindly go ahead with your plan of visiting a diagnosis center. I hope this should help you. All the best get well soon. Donot panic you will be definitely okay.
