Gastritis & middle back pain

Hi, I have been suffering from abdominal and middle back pain since July last year. It all came together on one day after a very stressful and anxious period of my life. Since that time I am still anxious about the problem that brought all that, but also am worried about the pain as no matter what I do nothing helps. I am very depressed because of the pain as it is quite severe. I had two gastroscopies and the later one showed mild gastritis. No major problems were found in my back (had MRI test) hence I'm thinking that the back pain is related to gastritis. The pain is in the pit of my stomach and in my back right in the middle under shoulder blades, right opposite where the pain in my stomach. The pain is there every day, gets worse after I eat. Quite often I get fever when my stomach & my back are worse. Please advice on homeopath remedy for gastritis. Thank you in advance.

Hi, thank you for your quick responses. I found the questionary on your website and here are the answers:
1. Describe your main suffering?
Abdominal and middle back pain.

The abdominal pain is right in the pit of my stomach. The pain is constant from the morning till night time, just better in the morning and gets worse by the end of day. The pain gets worse after I drink or eat no matter what. After I eat, I feel strong pulsation right where the pain is. I am on bland diet with water and it seems to be helping a little. Sometimes I have burning sensation in stomach. When it gets extremely sore I get fever. I belch a lot. Mouth becomes dry frequently. Gets coating over tongue. Bed smell from my mouth. Sometime feeling sour or metallic taste. I was diagnosed with gastritis.

The middle back pain came at the same day as the stomach pain, hence I am inclined to think that the back pain is related to my stomach problem. The pain is located in the middle of my thoracic spine right under shoulder blades and spreads a bit to the left. Also feel some pain on the left of my chest right below my left breast. The pain in my back is pretty much same every day. It feels as if that spot is inflamed and irritated. I had MRI done of my spine; no major issues were found that would cause so much pain I’m in. Although, mild osteoarthritis was found. I’ve tried steroid injections, acupuncture, yoga, other back exercises given by physio. Yoga and back exercises are causing more pain in my back.

2. What other physical sufferings do you have in your body?
Almost every day I get heart palpitations. My cardiologist doesn’t know why I’m getting them. He said what I’m having are ectopic bits, but sometimes I get a run of a few of them which scare me a lot every time I get them. I am very anxious and fearful of them. They just came one day and stay ever after. Beta blockers don’t help.

3. What mental sufferings / feelings do you have associated with your physical sufferings?
Depressed, anxious, upset, feeling like I will never recover from this.

4. What exactly do you feel when you are at your worst?
Burning inside, pain in stomach, back, fever.

5. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease?
It started in July last year soon after I had an episode of heart palpitations which scared me to death. After that shock, I couldn’t eat, sleep, and work. I thought it was life-threatening. I was waking up in the morning and the first thing I would feel was anxiety and fear sitting in my stomach. It was like that for a couple of month until one day this pain came to my stomach and back. The anxiety is still there when I wake up, however it’s much less than it was back then.

6. Which time of the day you are worst?

7. What are the things which aggravate your suffering and which are those which ameliorate the same?
Sitting all day at work, eating aggravate back pain and stomach ache. Doing exercises aggravate back pain only.
Laying down helps.

8. Do your think your sufferings have relation to any external stimuli (like, change of place) or any internal biological changes in the body, like, menses (in females)?

Yes. It all started with lots and lots of stress. So, stress and anxiety are related to my condition.
My menses cycle has effect on heart palpitations. I get more of them in the mid-cycle.

9. When do you feel better, during hot weather or cold weather, humid or dry weather?
Weather has no effect.

10. Describe your general mental set up? Are you Moody, Arrogant, Mild, Agreeable Changeable, Nervous, Suspicious, Easily offended, Quiet, Arguing, Irritating, Lazy etc.
Due to my illness: Moody due to menses, anxious, depressed, miserable, worried.
In general: suspicious, very keen to details, logical.

- How do you feel before or during a thunderstorm? same

- Do you like being consoled during your tough times? yes
- Are you sensitive to external stimuli like smell, noise, light etc? yes

- Do you have any typical habit or gesture like nail biting, causeless
weeping, talking to one self etc? nail biting since I was a little child.

- How do you feel about your friends, family, your children and especially your husband / wife? I love my family, but they are so sick and tired of me being sick so I think soon my husband will leave me. This adds extra stress and anxiety. I am not seeing my friends any more due to illness, not going out at all, haven’t been shopping for 18 months. I am thinking of quieting my job because I am in so much pain.

11. What are your fears and do you dream of any situation repeatedly?
My fear is heart palpitations and now this gastritis which seems like it’ll never go away. No point of living a life like mine

12. What do you crave for in food items and what are your aversions?
I crave for normal food without causing pain. Aversions are oranges, orange juice, anything acid.

13. How is your thirst: Less, Normal or Excessive?
Excessive. Quite often I get dry mouth. However, can’t drink much due to causing more pain.

14. How if your hunger: Less, Normal or Excessive?

15. Is there any kind of food which your body can’t stand?
Can’t tell. Anything I eat causes pain.

16. Is your sweat normal or less or more? Where does it sweat more: Head, Trunk or Limbs?
I have noticed that over the last couple of days I began sweating more after I eat, like my whole body and palms.

17. How is your bowel movement and stool type?
Regular, however not healthy. Bad smell. Sometimes I get diarrhea.

18. How well do you sleep? Do you have a particular posture of sleeping?
Tossing and turning. On my back with my hands tucked under my head to give stretch to my back and stomach with my leg bend up.

19. Do you think you are able to satisfy your sexual desires in general?
Have very little desire due to lots of pain.

20. How do you think you are different from others, if at all?
I am pretty ordinary, nothing special. I used to be happy, making jokes. Now I’m boring to be around, with no interest in anything.

21. What medications have been taken earlier by you to treat the diseases and do you have any particular symptom surfacing after the medication?
I am on Metoprolol for palpitations (doesn’t help at all), glucosamine for osteoarthritis, Mintec and probiotics for belching, slippery elm for stomach, motilium for quicker digestion

Dad had stroke and depression, mum has high blood pressure.

If you are not having normal menstrual cycles, please answer the following questions:

It’s been a bit out of sync. They used to be regular at 28 days, now at 24 days. They last for 4-5 days.

Nothing major, a bit moody.

Hi kadwa, thank you for your recommendation.

As I am new to homeopathy, I'd like to ask a few questions:
1. Can I continue taking my medications as stated in my previous post while taking homeopathic remedy?
2. When you mentioned Calcarea Carb, did you mean Calcarea Carbonica which is on your website?
3. Are there any possible side effects?
