I'm really looking for some advice. Last year I was suffering badly with trapped wind under my left rib a sensation of loud rumbling,bubbling,and pain.Also my throat felt burnt due to reflux...I have to take a glass of milk to bed at nighttime due to this. I eventually gave in and visited my GP at first he just prescribed some tablets for reflux Omaprozole without doing a correct test/blood test. He eventually did a blood test covering most things including H.Plyori. I came back positive for H.Plyori and was given treatment for it via 2 course of Anti B's and Omaprozole. I felt fine,however after a few weeks I started to get the gurgling back in my left side and lack of appetite due to feeling full/bloated esp in my throat area. I went back and he repeated the treatment once again,and also took my weight,as I have lost abit of weight. A few months have passed and I felt OK. However the past week or so Im back to left side pain with gurgling/stomach rumbling noises,sore throat,Nausea and feeling very full...It's hard to explain but it feels like a lump in my throat when eating. I've been back once again as I also am experiencing palpatations which seem to come on when Im full of wind. He did a physical examination,and my weight has gained slightly,he felt my stomach etc and everything was fine.He now insists I suffer IBS. and I am now on peppermint oil tablets. However I agree this could be a reason for some symptoms. However the reflux? and noise in my left side? I do belch every now and then but nothing out of the ordinary. I dont smoke,Nor drink. I have a varied diet,I occasionally eat take out,but I more a less cook.I do drink the odd coke cola. I'm worried why I feel like this,and want to know why. Im now on a course of peppermint tablets if these fail he will send me for a breathe test for H.Plyori? I'm confused as to why he's handling it the way he is,hense why I need advice.
