Help: Anxiety, GERD, Gastritis, Acid refluxHi All,
I am new to this forum and looking forward for some help regarding my condition.
Height: 5' 7'
Weight: 132 pounds
Professional life: Sedentary
Am suffering from Acid reflux, GERD, anxiety conditions. I get upset quickly, also am a hypochondriac. It sucks.
It all started from one bad day on November 2011. I was taken to ER for light headedness and then I was moved to various specialities from cardiology to urology. So far, there were around 4-5 different occassions when complete blood check was performed and dozens of tests around ultrasounds and so forth. Also, GI performed upper endoscopy.
Medical Findings so far:
Evidence of Grade 1 reflux.
Small sliding hiatal hernia.
Erosive gastritis of distal stomach.
No ulcers and no H.Pylori.
When symptoms get worse:
After eating food especially spicy food or when skip a meal or am anxious for no reason or when I skip medication.
Am really getting upset that I have to take regular medications which may have numerous side effects and am afraid to continue taking these medications for my life.
I have been reading some positive reviews on Nux vomica and Nat Phos, but I don't want to self-medicate. Also, I don't have good homeopaths around, so I am looking for some help here.
Thanks in advance.
