About 6 weeks ago I began having terrible acid reflux. Doctor suggested to increase the nexium to 2x a day. It did not help. I have been eating well but not very much and have lost weight. I am suffering also from extreme fatigue,mostly in the arms...pure exhaustion. I had blood work done yesterday which showed everything normal and had a CTscan which was normal. I do not know what to do or who to see at this point. This exhaustion is debilitating. I am scheduled for an endoscopy also.

  • Have you had gastrin levels checked? Eosinophil levels? Also, if your esophagus is inflamed could be due to allergies--especially in spring.

  • I have identical symptoms. Have taken a break from conventional meds and docs and started accupunture which helped somewhat. Sometimes this overwhelming vapor like sensation rises in my face. i don't know how else to describe it. I was hospitalized for 3 days after one such episode and nothing. They thought at first glance that I had a heart attack. Not so. I will be seeing a pulmonologist in August to see if it's a breathing issue and if not, then back to my primary care to see an endocrinologist. The ENT and gastro guys were worthless. if they can't see a lump or bump then you're not ill! Please e-mail me at losflores2@msn.com if you have any future diagnosis success and I will do the same.
