You state that you have had reflux in the past. Unless you have been treated
with effective medications to control acidity in the stomach, the condition can
come back to give you symptoms. I see you took only probiotics. These are
effective in controlling bowel symptoms such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome
They help to put back good bacteria in the colon reducing symptoms.
For acid control, you need drugs such as proton pump inhibitors which are
very highly effective. They are now available over the counter. To name
a few, Omeprazole, Pantoprazole
Your symptoms do suggest gastroesophageal reflux disease
I am glad that you are going to undergo upper G.I.Endoscopy. This can
give a lot more information about any damage that the lining of the
esophagus and stomach present. Doctor can take a biopsy also to look
for inflammation and for H.Pylori bacteria which is associated with ulcers.
You mention colitis ,but never treated for that. Very mild cases of ulcerative
colitis can go into spontaneous remission. You may have had IBS symptoms
sometimes confused with colitis. But , colonoscopy
and biopsy can give us
problems give a person severe pain on the right side of the
abdomen under the rib cage, with some radiation to the back, fevr,
chills,nausea,vomiting, and even yellow jaundice. Sonogram of the
gallbaldder can show gallstones.
Hope this answers your concerns. Discuss these with your doctor.
Wish you well.
