Hello.., I am a 25yr old Female with stomach problems in the course of the past year I have seen two specalist reguarding this problem the one Found Chronic Gastritis without Hemorrhage, Hiatus Hernia, Normal esophagus and Esophageal mucosal changes suggestive of short- segment Barrett's esophagus.He said to me that nothing can be done at that time ,so after about two weeks this problem got worse so I went back to see him, His answer on that day was " There is nothing I can do for you so I'm going to send you out Cleveland clinic( OH ) . Now after not being able to eat food or can bearly drink for almost two weeks I saw another specalist in my own home town , After he did the same test as the first one the first one did (Upper Endoscopy) . HIs findings Mild Gastritis. increased bile in the stomach. No hiatal hernia, mucosal abnormality. This was on a report that was mailed to me almost one month after the procedure, Now on the impression part of this report (put simply) that all this was in my head and all it was I was looking for attention, but..If anyone could simply shed some light on this it would help..

  • I could think about it if I knew more about you. Are you underweight and do you get adequate exercise? I'm imagining somebody shrivelled tight around the middle because somehow your duodenum and stomach have become combined. Well how else do you get bile in the stomach? Would it help to lessen your bile by not eating fats, I wonder. How are your major organs functioning, especially the liver / gall bladder? Good Luck with sorting it out. I hope that you find a cure as soon as possible.
