i went for an endoscopy and they found erosions seen in my lower stomach and gastritis lower body and antrum also z-line squamo-columnar junction distance 40 cm. they also found candida mild throughout my oesophagus everything else was normal. Is the above anything to worry about because my father died when he was 46 of stomach problems. I dont have anyother information about my father as we wasnt close and didnt see eachother all i know is that he did have celiak disease and he died due to stomach problems so now im worried that the hospital findings in my stomach may result in the same as my father or it maybe even the start of cancer .

I have acid reflux and was diagnosed with esophagitis and gastritis through upper endoscopy. Am constipated on and off and have recently noticed a (very) small amount of blood and mucous after a bowel movement. I am 48 and my last colonoscopy was 13 yrs ago- normal. Fecal occult blood test last month- negative. I am feeling really worried about colon cancer? Could it be something less serious?

Hi, I m an American living in the West Bank and have suffered from vaginosis (e. coli) for the past several months and severe stomach pain for the past six weeks. I don t know if they are related, but I m getting nervous about long-term effects. No doctor here seems to be able to cure it! For the vaginosis, I have taken metronidazole, clindomycin, nutrafuvantoin, and one other antibiotic, which have temporarily helped but not cured the vaginosis. Have also gone for weeks at a time of celibacy with my partner but he has not been treated and I m not sure what he needs to do to get treated. Meanwhile for the stomach pain I tested negative for parasites and H. Pylori, but here in the West Bank they are unable to do a general test for bacteria and have to test one by one, and this is expensive and time consuming. Finally, I have Crohn s Disease but two CBCs from different labs show normal indicators other than slight anemia, which is normal for me. I m not sure what to do. I m considering taking amoxicillin or perhaps nifuroxazide, which cured my case of diarrhea last year (but I don t have diarrhea now -- just horrible painful gas). If you can help in any way I would be extremely grateful.

Hi, I had H. Pylori (3+) in 2005, no ulcers in stomach, no treatment at the time. for the last couple weeks, I started having empty stomach pain, insomnia (could not sleep until 6-7AM,then I use sleeping pills), I started having blood stool yesterday. I went to see walk in clinic, the doctor told me to find a family doctor for treatment. what's the possible cause of this?

Yes I am a 35 yr old woman usually reasonably healthy. I had a merina coil fitted a yr ago and I will say it has dramatically helped with heavy bleeding I was experiencing and now have only light spotting once a month which is great. Although over this last year I have been experiencing sore knees and swollen knees and ever increasing stomach problems. The last few months I have been backwards and forwards to different GP s all seem to think it s something different from inflammation of the stomach lining, dyspepsia and this last week now IBS. I am taking now two different tablets 1 in the morning before eating omeprazole then 3 times a day before food mebeverine. And although initially seemed to help combined with removing wheat from my diet for a few days. But I m just nit feeling right and my stomach becomes distended and rock hard at times but then not others after eating I wake in the night with upper abdominal/stomach pain. I get headaches and am tired all the time and I feel very much like the GP isn t listening or doesn t care as no other tests apart from a breath test for h pylori which came back negative. I find myself trying to find out myself here online what might be wrong coz it s really getting me down and effecting my whole life as we can t eat out we can t have friends round as I m eating hardly anything incase it upsets me, my life is on hold! Could this be anything to do with my merina coil?? Any help or advice would be great I m at my wits end and want to get on with my life I am getting married in May and if I Just don t want to feel like this anymore. Pjlong
