Ok now I really am freaking out-- I googled my symptoms today-- burning and tightness in stomach area and everything says stomach cancer. I can't believe my mind is going down this road having just been to the doctor yesterday but it is...
Those might be a symptom of stomach cancer.
BUT, they are the same symptoms of GERD, peptic ulcers, h pylori, etc., all of which aren't life threatening AND much much much more likely.
Keep in mind......MILLIONS of peopled have GERD. MILLIONS of people get peptic ulcers and h py,or I overgrowth.
Its believed h, pylori overgrowth us the ultimate cause of SC. Yet.......80% of people have h. Pylori, and of those, only a small percentage get overgrowth, and of those, an small amount develop peptic ulcers, and f those, an even smaller amount develop SC.
I had the same problems. After a week of prilosec I'm doing better.
Also, stress and anxiety can cause all of your symptoms. It happened to me too.
