I have bad stomache pains that make my back hurt it feels like its in my ribs. If i lay on my back my stomache hurts worse. Its was too painful to even lay on my stomache. I have been to many doctors, even had an endoscopy, no ulcers he said thought i might have ibs, but i have none of the symptoms.. What is going on with me. Than i went to the E.R. and a doctor told me i have acid reflux. I take meds but they just dont seem to be targeting the problem. Is it even acid reflux i wonder?
Online places like HealthCentral.com are great places to find information about a condition you have been diagnosed with. But the first and most important thing is for you to see your doctor to determine what the cause is. Your doctor can also rule out anything really serious like cardiac problems. Once you are diagnosed, then you can use the information you find here to ask the questions you need to ask of your doctor, to make sure you and he manage your care.
It sounds like you could be experiencing Acid Reflux from your symptoms and your diagnosis at the hospital. Your doctor may have prescribed some medication, but you need to continue monitoring your situation. It could be you need a little more medication than you are taking, might need less, might need something different. You can read about medications here. Only your doctor will know for sure. If you want to look into other treatments or alternative treatments, you can find that information here.
