male, 20 y/o, not overweight, reasonably fit
Heartburn/acid reflux - Occurs 4/5 times per week and is very painful but can relieved by antacid tablets though not entirely. Been occurring for a very long time.
upper abdominal pain - occurs infrequently, though usually during exercise and is extremely painful.
lower abdominal pain - occurs almost every day, feels like cramps.
black and/or floating stools - every now and then, though I have noticed that black stools occur after a few drinks
I have seen doctor 3 times and have been given medicine to coat the lining of my stomach, proscribed prilosec for the heartburn, and have had an H.pylori test which came back negative.These medicines helped settle my stomach and reduce the heartburn but didn't seem to actually solve the problems which are now as bad as ever.
Any advice/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
