My diagnosis is; Gasstric Oesophageal Reflux Disease, Gastritis, Hiatal Hernia and Oesophagitis to name a few. I am trying to find out if these conditions heal themselves as I have been offered no treatment at all for any.
The acid burns my throat and I have a great deal of trouble eating, at times choking even with fluids. Literally after the first mouthful I am belching and with liquids and soft food I have terrible reflux.
I am never hungry but use the strategy that every time I have a cup of tea I have to pop something into my mouth otherwise I would never eat. I keep a diary of what I eat and symptoms but I know whatever i am getting in me is not enough as I lost 5 stone in 6 months and have been fighting not to lose any more for the past 2 years. I put 1lb on in 6 months, but lost it again
Should I be on some kind of treatment or WILL it heal itself one day?
My first diagnosis was 4th June 2010. I have been referred to a Gastroenterologist again (Aug 20th but heard nothing yet) because I have been bleeding since March of this year and the Doctor said he thinks a Colonoscopy in order after having 10 Adenomatous Polyps removed May 2010.
He suggested I took previous paperwork with me and they might do an Endoscopy as well (Another Doc at the Surgerysaid I could not be referred for an Endoscopy, so this might be a sneaky way for me to get one I think)
Does anyone have any thoughts on this situation please?? Thanks.
