Hi all, it's been more than a month since my first 20 mg omeprazole and I still have some tummy issues.
To be short, 90% of the bloating and the excessive burping has gone away, but I still have this "gnawing" sensation that I get a few hours after a meal.
It's like I'm hungry but I know I am not. It goes away once I eat something. It comes and goes.
The GPs I've been to have diagnosed me with acidity issues, but I am trying to set an appointment with a gastro doctor next week. I know I will get an endoscopy to finally finish everything. To be honest, I am extremely anxious about getting the tests because of the results. I am scared they will find some polyps or malignancy in my GI tract.
The good side though is that: The burping and burping have reduced immensely, I have gained weight, no acid reflux, no nausea. My bowel movements are pretty much okay. No bleeding that I know of or any intense pain.
I am still anxious that this might lead to stomach, pancreas, or intestinal cancers. I am 23 years old and I fear the worst already.
I had a CBC blood test 2 months ago which showed perfect results. That was the last test I had and back then, I did not have any stomach issues.
Anybody else on the same boat?
I am scared that the meds have not made the symptoms go away 100%.
