Nausea, metallic taste in mouth. No help from pantoprozole. Endoscopy results normal. Suspected post infectious functional dyspepsia. Advice
For 5 weeks I have had severe nausea and a metallic taste in the mouth. The doctor put me on pantoprozole for 4 weeks which didn't help. I had an endoscopy which came up with no inflammation, no ulcers and normal gastric mucosa. I am still waiting on the biopsy results to come back. He seems to think i may have Severe Post Infectious Functional Dyspepsia. Will this go away on its own? I am very miserable :(
Hello.If the diagnosis of Functional Dyspepsia is confirmed you dont have to feel sad.You have to wait for biopsy results but Functional Dyspepsia is a benign pathology.In Dyspepsia ,the digestive tract movement is slow and causes gastro-esophageal reflux, stomach bloating, nausea .... If you have not improved taking Pantoprazole, is necessary to prescribe a digestive tract motility stimulating . In my opinion Metoclopramide 10 mg thrice a day can be taken for treating Functional Dyspepsia .Please consult your local doctor specialist for a prescription.) I wish you good health.
