Question: Hi Doctor .....
I have a problem of heartburn..
I have stomach pain it feels like cramping...
The foods i intake are vomited every time ...
I already had Endoscopy & Colonoscopy....
But they said everything looks fine .
I have already tried all gastric medicines , syrups and now even antidepressant tablets as i am going through a bad state...
The Endoscopy report says so:- IN ANTRUM:- Erythema & Erosions
REPORT IMPRESSION:- Antral Gastritis

The Colonoscopy report says so:-
IN RECTUM :- Focal erythematous areas seen in distal rectum
ANAL CANAL:- Haemorrhoids
REPORT IMPRESSION:- Distal Proctitis

Now they are also planning to take CT contrast, to see any other problem.... Please suggest me what to do next, as i am going through this phase for a peroid more than six months without any change...
