Well, last Sunday night ,a week ago, I was up ALL night long and all Monday morning in lots of pain!! I missed a couple of doses of my Nexium, so I fully expected to feel fine by next day, not!
Every day, I had mild to bad pain throughout day and night for the next few days. I went to the doctor, he doubled my dose, so I started taking 2 nexium a day for 5 days then he said it is back to one a day. Well tomorrow is back to once a day, and I am afraid of that. I had a stomach ultrasound this morning! I had an endoscopy 2 1/2 years ago that revealed gastritis caused by that awful H. Pylori bacteria!!! If you have ever had acid reflux or any other gastrol. issue that has been caused by this bacteria, you must know that it can cause stomach cancer, and also, .you must make sure you get rid of it. It is hard to get rid of and I am not sure they did 2 1/2 years ago!! I took the antibiotics but it was never suggested that I have a test to see if it was gone, and there are only 2 tests and the doctor told me they are not 100% accurate, the breath test and stool test, only way to be sure he said is to do another endoscopy! I am just praying it is not too serious whatever is wrong this time and that it is not my gall bladder, I so do not want to have any sugery. It seems so many of us with diabetes have this. I welcome any stories, feedback from those who have had the same thing.
