Misdiagnosed

Yes, I was misdiagnosed. I saw my gastoenterologist yesterday and he told me that I do not have an acid problem. I was told earlier on that I have gerd. I am relieved, yet kind of annoyed. I am blessed that there is nothing wrong. My gastoenterologist referred me to a psychologist who specializes specifically in treating people deal with GI symptoms and stresses from it. I am really looking forward to go see her. Today I have been really calm, but my mind is trying to make me think that something is wrong because I am not in fight mode.

This is my life lol. Diagnosed last year. Had my first flare up July. Since July my anxiety has been none stop. GERD causes anxiety anxiety causes GERD. It's a crappy cycle. I think everything is wrong with my because it mimics heart attacks and everything else. It's scary. I suggest you add this fb group. It's helped me so much.

Look up GERD/reflux on fb groups. It's helped ease my mind seeing 1000s of others going through what I am.

I'm here if you have any questions too!
