I have been experiencing for the past several months reflux,

I have been experiencing for the past several months reflux, stomach aches, diarrhea and some fatigue. I have had my gallbladder removed in 2006 and have stomach discomfort with certain foods but lately it seems like everything I eat makes my stomach upset and gives me heartburn.

I have been taking 1 tablet of Metamucil daily for the last 2 months prescribed by my doctor because I have diverticulosis. In the last couple weeks, I have been experiencing acid reflux which I haven t had in the past. I am wondering if this could be a side effect of the Metamucil.

What could the causes of burning at the top back of my throat be? Could I be experiencing acid reflux during sleep without knowing it? Is it a symptom of throat cancer? It happens off and on for past six months. I can t pinpoint an activity or pattern of why it acts up when it does. It will last for about15 mins on average. The sensation has never lasted longer than 30 mins. I have recently gone from 118 lbs to 132 lbs since quitting smoking six months ago. I had first case of gastroietus or something like that about a week ago and some recent episodes of heartburn though just a few times and I had the burning sensation coming and going before the heartburn episodes recently which I m attributing to increased weight and overeating on the holiday. The burning sensation is becoming a little more frequent like weekly this month rather than once a month. Any ideas? I suppose I should see a doctor but I don t want anything serious on my record until I can reach a year as a non-smoker and can get affordable life insurance. Thank you in advance for your response.

I had surgery in 1996 for acid reflux. I did not have the esophogeal sphincter. In June of 2014 I had a bowel obstruction and spent 6 days in the hospital. On Decenber 19th 2014 I had surgery to repair and redo the acid reflux surgery. I also had my gallbladder removed in 2008. I have been having pain in my right side but this past friday I had some sort of attack. I was doubled over with pain and cramping in my whole abdominal area. I was sweating and almost passed out. I went to our local er and they said that there was a 4 hour wait to be seen so I came home. I had a similar attack on Saturday but it was not as severe. I see my surgeon/specialist this month on the 19th for my three month follow up since the acid reflux surgery. My question is do you think that it could be my appendix and if I should wait until my appointment and discuss this with my surgeon in Pittsburgh Pa . I am still experiencing pain in my side and diarreah and I am not sure what I should do.
