Hi! I’m an 18 years old girl. I’ve been diagnosed with GERD when I was eleven. I have a very severe reflux along with severe nausea, no vomiting since a long time though, cough (sometimes severe), snore, acid taste in the mouth, and muscle pain (sometimes severe too). I’ve been visiting gastroenterologists since eleven. I’ve had multiple hospitalizations. The reflux sometimes cause cough exacerbation that leads to hospitalizations. When I turn 16 my gastroenterologist made me a gastrin level lab which results were high. He reapeted this test like four times, and in every single one came out high. Then I went under a whole bunch of studies: MRI, CT Scan, Sonograms, Octreoscan. In almost all of them, a small lesion appears on the pancreas, which they think can be a gastrinoma. Their not sure though, ‘cause they couldn’t do a biopsy because it’s too little. I’ve been taking Baclofen 10mg, Prilosec 20mg, Prilosec 40mg, Zantac 300mg, prescribed by my GI, as for seven years. Among all of this, since I was eleven, more or less, that was when all this started, I feel a pressure on the upper part of my belly button. And I feel immense relief when I pull the top of my belly button. I just wish that someone can help me out to figure what is happening to me, since I’m very desperate. This last week, at least, I’ve been having moderate to severe stomach pain right after eating. I’m just scare that doctors can’t really figure out what I have and keep getting worse. I just wish someone relate to my symptoms and help me with this.
Thanks in advance,
