Hello, im new to this and hoping i might be able to make some new friends and receive some advice.
Im a 20 year old female, Generally healthy, i about a year ago i started feeling really sick in the tummy and obviously more symptoms were occuring while eating foods and it kind of i guess gradually progressed and i didnt understand what was going on and it was making me very anxious and i guess thats when the anxiousness started becoming an issue. I went to the doctors and had a breath test done that came back positive with h pylori bacteria and so i finally the issues will be cleared, i went on the treatment for the bacteria, cleared it but still felt crap. Ended up getting a gastroscopy that cam back positive with gastritis and the doctor sent me away with somac. Well somac wasnt working for me, i wasnt taking properly either so i figured that was maybe why. I still felt crap, my anxiety was at an all time high with constant trips to emergency because i would have panic attacks there was something more serious. (Especially thinking it was something to do with my heart) i get heart pulpitations quite frequently and thats put down to stress. Ive had holter monitor, 24 minitor and ecg that all come have come back fine.
The doctor said for me to try nexium instead of somac and so i started that. First week in i started getting really bad arm and jaw pain, left arm predominantly and sometimes right, my back, jaw, neck and sometimes shooting pain in my left leg. The doctors said this was unrealted to the nexium but i had stopped anyway but the pains are still persisting and its been one month now. The pain is mostly in my left arm, neck and shooting pain in my jaw. I didnt know if maybe ive pinched something or what ive done but sometimes i feel it in other spots to so i doubt that ive pinched something. I cant tell if its my bones or muscle, doctor gave me anti inflammatorys if its muscle because the chest wall hurts at times too but they haven't helped either.
Finally im back on somac, have been for 2 weeks and i feel like its just masking the problem not fixing anything, tummy still bloated, burping, pain and nauseous.
Im also very sensitive to the hot weather as of lately.
And feel really fatigue, dizzy, brain foggy and like not with it i dont know if the anxiety could be the reason i have these spurts.
I just really want to know whats going on with me. Im in pain and i feel like im loosing myself.
