By the term acid reflux i can understand that acid from stomach refluxes back. yes its better to go for endoscopy as tablets are not releving the reflux disease. even you can go for gelusil MPS syrup which will help u more.

Endoscopy is a test, where in a tube is inserted through the mouth and stomach, and esophagus can be seen. It is done by a doctor in the hospital.

Yes it may be required. The chokling that you feel is also due to your gastritis. Even i feel it and my doc said it is due to my chronic gastritis

Hello, for about 2 weeks now I have had a problem with my throat and voice. I am a singer and 1/2 of my range is completely gone (upper range), when I try to sing, my throat tightens and no matter how hard I try I cant hit the note (a note which normally is very easy for me). Normally when i cant hit a note my voice just cracks, now it doesnt even do that, it just stops and goes very flat. Sometimes it almost feels as if I am chocking on my throat if i try too hard. Any Ideas for me? Thanks a lot!

Hello Dr. Narasi, My 12 year old daughter suffers from Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis and Ulcerative Colitis . She was diagnosed when she was 3. She also developed Portal Hypertension in 2007 which resulted in a splenetic renal shunt forming in the fall of 2007. The portal hypertension decreased at that time. This fall the portal hypertension returned dramatically. She has just been listed for transplant 2 weeks ago. The portal hypertension is now causing portal hypertensive gastropathy. Last Wednesday at 4 in the morning she started throwing up blood. We took her to the er. Her GI did a ct scan , blood work, and scoped her. That is when we discovered the gastropathy. She is currently suffering horribly from the gastropathy. she is on numerous medications including: protonix , sucrafate, lialda, prednisone , poly-iron, mephyton, ursodiol, aquadeks, and refampin. Currently, we are trying to treat the gastropathy with and extra dose of protonix, an extra dose of the sucrafate, and hydrocodone. This is not working. She is currently doubled over in pain crying her eyes out. She is nearly hysterical. I ve called the transplant team and her GI, but they have not called back. I need help in knowing what else I can do to help her not hurt. Could increasing her prednisone help to decrease the pressure, inflammation, and pain she is experiencing? I ask this because in the past 5 years I believe that she has suffered from this gastropathy many times though undiagnosed. And during those times, we were required to increase her prednisone. Each time the gastropathy pain left her within hours of her increased dose. When we did not increase the prednisone the pain persisted until we did increase the prednisone although it did take longer for the prednisone to relieve the pain, usually 5 days. Have you ever heard of prednisone helping gastritis/gastropathy? Or do you have any suggestions? And at what point do I need to take her to the hospital. Just so you know. We ve been dealing with this for 10 years now. I am not an over reactive parent, and Bethany is a very tough girl. She doesn t make a fuss even if she feels awful. So, when I say that she is suffering, I truly mean it. She is in horrible pain. Thank you for your help! Taylor K.

Hello doctor, I m 37 and into IT field, do not eat meat, eggs , eat food. No smoking and alcohol habits. I ve been going through right hand side pain which starts 1 inch above belly and continues 2 inch below. I do not have pain on the LHS. This pain is whole day, before and after eating, before and after nature call. Have tried all antacides, visited many doctors and clinics. This is 15 th year of this cause and no medicine has given me relief. I have lot of fatigue in whole body. At times I feel like dropping spoon from my hand. My forehead is always heavy with cold and eyes remain redish and pale whole day. the hunger is absolutely abnormal and there is nautia whole day. The nature call is abnormal with gastritis . It also pains in the portion of pant belt in horizontal direction but thats not constant. Day by day my signature is getting changed and I ve lost flow in the writing. Generally there is neck and back pain due to fatigue. The sleep is highly unstable although I was known for sleeping long hours during my collage days. I haven t lost weight but it never increases. After closing eyes, I feel pressure in the forehead. In Sept 2011, I started having bad sight while looking at a projector in conference room. I keep sneezing but with dry cold. In general the feeling can be specified as someone is sucking me like taking the air off the baloon. The stomoch remains flat even after taking good amount of food and is generally very tight. Previously Barium, gastroentrological test are done with normal results.

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?
