Need support and encouragement. I’ve suffered with my gastric issues for 14 years. I’ve had a flare up that’s lasted two weeks and I’m done. I’m going back to a doctor for MORE tests but I’m putting my foot down and saying we’re testing for everything until I have answers. I don’t care about cost, down time, surgery etc. i want this battle to be over. I wanna live like a normal person. I can’t do this anymore. I’m so tired. I really hope I get answers.

    You go! Hell yeah. Thats the kind of attitude to have. Getting fed up gets shit done! I feel you. It's year 14 of my issues too. Stabbing ice pick feeling, throwing up after drinking water, ulcers, bleeding, constant bloating, pressure. I finally had enough and did more internet research by myself than I could get from any doctor! Fuck 'em. I stopped eating meat and dairy and started taking Miralax, Prilosec, and heavy duty probiotics. Im started to feel better a little at a time but still have those days, ya know? P.s. When I have sudden stomaches/attacks I take 2 peppermint pills (crushed leaves and oil) and it'll usually take the edge off in about 30 minutes.

    I'm so glad that I'm not the only one who feels that way. How are you doing now??
