Feeling of tiredness
and lack of energy may indicate that your blood count
is low. This may be due to slow blood loss from the digestive tract. Since you
do mention stomach problems and heartburn
symptoms , the two could be
related. I would recommend that you first have blood tests including complete
blood count, iron levels and also have your stool tested for hidden blood.
If you have not had an X-ray of the esophagus
and stomach, you should
get that. (Upper GI series). After that ,depending on results you may need
an endoscoppic examination of your stomach with a biopsy
Temporarily for relief, instead of gaviscon
, try over the counter Omeprazole
20 mg. twice a day an hour before meals.
Wish you well.
