Hi, I am 27yrs of female a mother of 2.10yrs old girl baby. I was 52kg before pregnancy and now 57kg. Past 3 weeks I was having lightheadness , with feeling of vomiting and went to general physician who said it is acidity and asked me to avoid, spicy food, fatty oily foods, fried foods, milk products etc I was following and taking his medicine. I was feeling better, but my family doctor asked me to consult with a gastro doctor . I went last saturday to meet a gastro doctor who checked my stomach and overall body, said to take happy medicine and mucaine gel for 2 weeks for this acid reflux and if it is not reduced,then need to do endoscopy. I am really worried hearing this. Now am feeling better since saturday after having medicines and also good diet food. What is endoscopy? DO I need to go to the doctor after 2 weeks for doing the test? Does endoscopy suggest the exact problem and relive from this irritations forever. Now am taking morning emtpy stomach tender coconut. Yesterday night I was feeling like vomiting and was struggling for burping. But once I took a walk , I was burping and was fine. Even then I felt slight short of breath for 5 minutes. I precisely don;t know whether that is shortness or my normal breath. During these times I feel as if I was to pass motion and Once am done I will be fine. It wont be loose motion or constipated. Please suggest me help. I am now in India but moving to the UK. I want to live happily and don;t want to have any diseases or irriations. Please advice me what should I do? I don t want to do endoscopy after hearing its process. Will I be ok if I eat good food with good diet?Is this a very big disease? Thanks

im 34 year old male .ive been to my gastroenterologist and he ordered or performed the necessary tests (blood tests liver and pancreas enzyme tests, colonoscopy , endoscopy with biopsies, ct scan of abdomin and pelvis, gallbladder ultrasound, and hida scan) all normal except for endoscopy which showed mild gastritis and gerd. maybe slight ibs. the thing about the ibs part that throws me is i am very regular. i go once a day in the morning like 98% of the time. im not constipated nor do i have diareah. sometimes my stool floats but then slowly sinks. is it easy to tell the difference between stools that float because of gas and those because of fat? what else is there to have in the form of tests? i feel like ive done it all. i have no history of gastric cancer, not anemic, never had h pylori or polyps in stomach or colon. Also i recently started to put the weight ive lost back on. i assume this is a good sign. I worry about my pancreas. .
