Stupid stomach

Not bad enough to pit it, but I am on a new acid reduction med, and it is affecting my damned digestion. I have the worst damned sulphur burps … and it feels like my stomach is just not emptying at all. 130 and I still can’t get to sleep for the burps and indigestion :mad:

You have my sincere sympathy - I’ve been fighting with stomach problems off and on for years now, with a bad flare-up that started last September still bothering me. My doctor’s last diagnosis is Irritable Bowel Syndrome that is manifesting as stomach pain rather than bowel symptoms. I get that weird stomach not emptying thing, too - it feels like I’m almost painfully full for hours, then stomach-growling hungry in 15 minutes.

I know what you are going through. I hope it works out for you.

I gave gastroduedenal crohn’s disease, so I can empathize with you. Before I was diagnosed my stomach wouldn’t empty, and it was extremely unpleasant. I still have minor issues like that, especially if I eat certain trigger foods, but it’s nothing like it used to be.

Thanks, just hoping I accomodate to the damned meds soon. At least [at this time] IBS/Crohns isnt an issue, just GERD. Well, and those damned sulphur burps.

<burpy smily>

I take Prevacid and no sulpher burps. It’s OTC now so if this stuff doesn’t work out give it a try. Good Luck.

Sulfurous? The new med wouldn’t happen to be… “Ass Effects” now would it? (warning, sound effects) :smiley:

Seriously, if you don’t mind sharing, what are you on? We’re trying to figure out what’ll work for my GERD, and Prilosec ain’t cutting it any more. Just did a Reglan trial too and it’s not an acceptable addition to the regimen.
