Conditions with symptom: 'heartburn'
hi i have been suffering with bad heartburn for over seven years now. the doctors keep giving me the same tablets as i cant take gaviscon or any liquid as i will just be sick. i deal with heartburn 24/7 even if someone sprays next to me or even smoke, eating and drinking is so uncomfortable as everything from water, meats, pasta to coffee, rich foods. the doctor keeps saying don't eat this and that and drink plenty of water but the main cause is water even in the bath and inhaling the steam from the water will make me have heartburn. its making my life unbearable and i cant leave my house due to being sick with it, even my teeth are rotting due to heartburn and round to-tree times a week i will start to get these egging burps and they last round a day or to i even changed my doctors three times due to nothing is getting done i don't know what to do anymore has anyone got any tips any advise
Hi Martina, The continuous heart burn can be due to several things such as over eating - try cutting down your portion sizes, eating fatty foods or eating late at night. The eggy (or sulphurous) burps you get are a sign that you are not digesting your food quickly enough (particularly meat), which means there's too much in your intestine, and it's beginning to ferment. The heat of the bath can also accelerate the process. Have a bath at least 4-6 hours after you have eaten. Hope that helps :)
I am having left testicle pain(at the back of the testicle) pain for more than a year now. I am 38 this year. I did go for physical checkup and scrotum ultrasound which all came out negative. I had quite a bad heartburn and lower abdominal pain 1 year ago where I went for endoscopy and colonoscopy. The Gastroentologist found two polyps at my rectum and removed it. Now I don't have stomach or lower abdominal pain except heartburn at times. But the left testicle and pelvic pain which started since a year ago with lower abdominal pain and heartburn is still there. Left testicle pain is more prominent especially when there is a sudden move even when I wear trousers or pants. The pain is more like a stinging pain. My PSA is negative and CT scan also came out negative. Doctors said it could be a nerve problem which could heal by itself and since scrotum ultrasound, physical check, CT scan and urine test, other blood test came out negative, I don't have to worry. But the left testicle and pelvic pain is still there. How not to worry? Please help.

Have you been checked for hiatal hernia? If diagnosed with a hiatal hernia, a chiropractor trained for repairing it can do so in 1 -4 visits. I had and a hiatal hernia for at least 15 years and no longer have one after one chiropractic visit.

Your question sounds like a setup for a coeliac disease diagnosis! I had all these symptoms which are now all clear with a gluten free diet, and for eczema which I also had on my hands it was cured by Tissue salts for skin disorders (Scuessler brand works for me)

I regularly get a taste of ammonia in the back of my throat (3-5 times a week - anytime) - I have had tonsil problems for years, in that they are permanently enlarged, I have breathing problems and snore loudly. I also suffer from heartburn quite often, although not so much lately, so I am wondering if these problems could be related. I have found recently that the taste comes after I have gulped down a drink but it is very irregular. My partner says he can't smell it but the taste for me is really pungent and overpowering. I can even feel it in the back of my nose. There is no pain associated but the regularity of this problem has become a cause of concern. It started about 4 months ago.
you need to get your tonsils removed through surgery, it's possible they may have some sort of infection which isn't tonsillitus. the important thing to know is that the tonsils are a part of the body that are not needed for anything, they're basically useless. all they do is get infected, getting them removed will be beneficial to you, a lot of children get them remeoved when they're young if they have suffered from tonsilitus more than twice, and will probably solve your problem! it's a scary thought but theres nothing to be affraid of trust me! good luck
