Please help! I recently had a stomach virus. Several days afterward I began having severe pain in my epigastric region. Felt like heaviness and pressure in my chest and I would get this terrible squeezing pain every few minutes. No heartburn or reflux symptoms. Went to doctor, had blood work and ultrasound to check my gallbladder. Gallbladder looked fine, but did find a 6mm Kidney Stone still in kidney and not blocking anything. Was told it was probably gastritis and peptic ulcer. Prescribed GI cocktail and told to take Prilosec. GI Cocktail made pain worse but Prilosec helped with the squeezing pain. Had EKG to make sure it wasn't heart and that came out fine. Now I still have the pressure pain and dull achy pain with bouts of constipation and diarrhea and terrible unrelenting mid and lower back pain that makes it almost impossible to sleep at night. Not getting anywhere with doctor. Do not have insurance at present moment, so I cannot afford a referral to specialist. Anyone have any of these same symptoms and, if so, any resolutions? Thanks!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
