Detailed Answer:
Hi,
I read carefully all your concerns and I can say as follows:
1. Your symptoms may be related with :
- gastric issues like gastritis or stomach ulcer
- pancreatic issues
2. To my opinion you need to do:
- upper endoscopy
- abdominal ultrasound
3. Meantime I would like to suggest to use :
- PPi 's like prilosec OTC
- antispasmodic drugs like butiscopolamine

Otherwise I would like to know if you have had bowel movement changes , fever ?
Wish you health!

I have been diagnosed with a slightly enlarged prostate with problems of having to urinate often. My suspicion is that I have a continual underlying water infection that is irritated by coffee or alcohol. It is not the first time I have had this kind of episode. I am drinking cranberry juice today in the hope that things will improve. I do have previous health questions and history in my account. Previous episodes of this discomfort has resulted in having my water tested which is always negative apart from occasionally they say there is a small trace of blood in the urine. I will check again as soon as I can.

Detailed Answer:
Hi back,
With regards to urinary infection , it may mimic your symptoms rarely.
This is why it is important to do urine culture test to better determine the cause of blood urine trace and symptoms.
Blood urine trace may be even during to urinary crystals and sludges.
Meantime take plenty of water and perform:
pelvic ultrasound
urinary culture analysis
With regards to alcohol and coffee effects both of them are diuretics and produce large amount of urine .
This is why both of them aggravate your symptoms.
Hope it was helpful to you.

Hi, I have been having some back pain lately and taking more NSAIDS than usual. I am being worked up to ensure it is nothing but musculoskeletal issues...so far everything normal. But now for 2 days I have had what I think is very bad heartburn but it s much worse than any normal heartburn I have ever had! It s mostly central sternam to right chest and radiating into my neck and feels like burning and Stinging feeling. Should I get this checked out? I have some abdominal fullness and gastritis feelings with nausea but wondering if it s just all the stress about my back or a new symptom. Should I be worried and get an esophogeal exam right away or take some more antacids and see if it goes away? thanks:)

I am a 41 yr old female who just saw a GI doctor today for excessive stomach acid and chronic gurgling; squirting noises in abdomen. He prescribed Bentyl(?) and wants to do an endoscopy . Is this procedure necessary? I have no pain or burning just noises that i cannot control that go on 24/7. Nexium doesn t quiet them nor does phenergan. Should I have the procedure done anyway or get 2nd opinion? He says gastritis or possible IBS but do those things start as suddenly as my symptoms did?

Hi, I have been suffering from erosive gastritis for 2 years now. My attacks sometime lasts for hours and I get my attack almost everyday. Antacids don t seem to take effect most of the times. I sweat alot and cannot speak when I get my attack. I have done a number of test from endoscopy, blood test to heterophile antibody test, which all came back negative. They just say that I have a few ersoions in my stomache. I have taken all sorts of medications from esomoprezole for almost a year, to ranitidine , pylokit. I am taking vitcofol injection (10 shots), sanofide, emanzen, rabeprazole , zenpride, ofloxacin at the moment but It doesn t seem to help. My right breast (rib cage) hurts first and the pain spread around back. I asked the doctors why right breast hurts but they say it is not related to my erosive gastritis, but whenever I get the attack, my right breast hurts the most. I had my gal bladder removed a few years ago.
