Hey, hope you all can help me with my symptons.

I have been told I have GERD (so I take Prisolec OTC, and this does not seem to help me). I also have been told I have pleurisy, and have taken anti-inflamation drugs which have not helped.

I have blood in my stool, and I have random chest pains, that aren't in one central area. They have done a few different ECKs on me, with nothing coming back that the doctor's see is wrong.

I am getting a sidmoidoscopy done next month to see if anything is wrong with my ployps.

Any advice, or anybody might have an idea on what I could have? What tests I should try to get next?

  • Also, to add, it appears to get worse when I eat 'unhealthy foods', but not everything seems to be because of this. Thanks,Burr
