Hello @afrochic, it is good to hear from you. I am glad to hear that your gastro endoscopy will be repeated again. That is probably important given your symptoms. It is unfortunate that you have not found more relief from medication and diet. Elevating the head of your bed is very helpful, I've done that for a number of years now.

Have you lost weight because of your problems with eating and nausea?
Is coming to the U.S. (to be seen at Mayo) a possibility for you if your symptoms do not improve under your current treatment?

Thank You Teresa. I have suffered weight loss or should I say, difficulty in gaining weight. It's not drastic but people do notice and tell me I look thinner. I should be repeating the endoscopy in a few months. The pain subsided for the entire month of June but I am now starting to feel the symptoms again. I am planning to come to the US for grad school in January. My sister worked at Mayo Clinic briefly. I don't know, I imagine its expensive.
