Patients with this condition tend to have premature satiety with resultant epigastric heaviness or fullness even after the consumption of small meals (22). The diagnosis of paraneoplastic dyspepsia requires a high index of clinical suspicion.
However, it should be remembered that many GI problems seen in patients with cancer are also seen in those without cancer. In fact, some GI symptoms are very common, and although they cause distress, they rarely represent life-threatening pathology.
I’ve been given antibiotics and steroids to knock it out but it always returns. Lately I notice I only cough after eating, or if I recline. My doc says its acid reflux. I do not burp or pass gas much and recently i had a crohns flate which maybe was brought on by the antibiotics. As part of trying to treat the cough I’ve taken Prilosec but it did nothing.
All this is making me very stressed and I have a lot of anxiety about making the reflux worse in fear or developing Barrett’s. This anxiety is undoubtedly making things worse. I feel that I have indigestion issues and this got much worse after I took Pepcid for a week. Doctor mentioned doing a gastric emptying study to see if I have gastroparesis, but I have a very large deductible and that is expensive. I wonder if HCL tablets would help, but I am worried that it would make my inflamed esophagus worse in case I don’t have low stomach acid.
Is Leaky Gut Making You Sicker?
I didnt feel like i was being choked or any regular symptoms for two days after i stopped them & was so happy but now im feeling slight symptoms again. Ive never had the feeling go away since its happened it only eases & it doesn’t change depending on what i eat or what im doing. I didnt take the stomach pills for 2 weeks before because i thought it was over after i was told i got rid of h pylori & i gelt no difference when i was off the pills. Im still hoping being off the birth control will be the answer but its been a week & i really need someones professional opinion because no doctors will talk to me. Please help me, i just want to feel normal again.

There is considerable overlap between this constellation of symptoms and those of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), biliary tract disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and chronic pancreatitis. This condition is reported in approximately 25% of the population each year, but most do not seek medical care (18, 19). Gastroparesis is a disorder in which the stomach takes too long to empty its contents.
Treatment of Gastroparesis
fiber through legumes and GF grains in order to keep my bowels regular. I tried eating paleo for a while and I felt horrible during that time, and I was getting very constipated with hard and dry stools. I also would get horrible stomach pains during this time, possibly because I was consuming too much protein with low hydrochloric acid. It is weird to me, though, that since adding in more complex carbs and fiber, my bowels are much more regular and I don’t get stomach upsets anymore. I do however notice worse brain fog and more bloating and gas at times.
My body makes plenty of insulin but uses it very poorly. My bloating, gas, etc. got much worse after being treated for a kidney infection in March and a UTI in April.
This can cause a burning sensation along the midline of the chest, especially while the person is lying down. I have seen patients whose teeth were actually eroded over time by regurgitated stomach acid. Heartburn is most frequently noted within 1 hour of eating, particularly after the largest meal of the day. Wine drinkers may have heartburn after hearty consumption of red wine but not after white wine. Lying down, especially after a late meal, causes heartburn within 1-2 hours; in contrast to peptic ulcer disease, heartburn does not awaken the person in the early morning.
Tension Headache (Symptoms, Relief, Causes, Treatment)
If you’ve been prescribed antacid medication for your heartburn symptoms, your doctor may change your prescription to avoid triggering hypochlorhydria symptoms. Low stomach acid is a trigger for poor digestive activity. Because food and nutrients can’t be broken down, they sit in the stomach and cause bacteria to build up. The main symptoms from this process are gas and bloating. Finally, there are certain medications which can exacerbate the symptoms of this gastric disorder.
If the body doesn’t receive necessary nutrients, you can become vitamin or mineral deficient. Stomach acid is also responsible for killing harmful bacteria from foods and neutralizing enzymes. Low gastric acid can leave the body vulnerable to a number of diseases and health complications. Severe cases of gastroparesis can also be treated by injecting botulinum toxin (Botox). The injection is given into the valve between the stomach and the intestine to keep it relaxed and open for longer period of time so food can pass through.
I’ve talked about GERD / heartburn before but I want to give you a quick summary. A leading theory of GERD goes like this.
