Well after a long day at the doctor…they have determined he has gastritis and ibs. They arent sure yet if the gastritis is from an infection or to much acid. They took a biopsy and we should know by friday. Thank you all so much for all the thoughts and prayers. I appreciate them so much.

My Fiance has the same problem… too much stomach acid and no one can really figure out how to treat it or what’s going on with him exactly. I always worry that on the day of our wedding he is gonna have to be rushed to the hospital due to his stomach problems. I totally feel for you futuremrsbyrd. I hope they treat him and please keep me posted to his prognosis… I think our FI’s may have the same issue.

I had the same problem; mine was caused by stress and likely aggravated by a soy allergy. It started off with a few months of minor GI discomfort and cumulated with about 10 days of not being able to eat or drink anything but water and rice. After that I had really intense GI symptoms that were so bad they led to severe chest pains and esophageal spasms.
At the beginning of my treatment, I was put on Prilosec. I was also given about 2 week’s worth of muscle relaxers to help stop the spasms. I ended up staying on Prilosec for about 3 months until my stress level had resided (lots of working out and yoga!) and I put 2+2 together and realized that as a new vegetarian (about 1 year) soy was the only thing novel in my diet. After I went off of soy for a couple of weeks, I felt so much better. Food allergies or intolerances can have really major effects on the GI tract long term. Maybe your Fiance has developed one or added a new food? The biopsy should be able to tell if this could be a cause.
That said, I also know a couple of people who have been on Prilosec, Pepcid or Nexium for years because of acid disorders. It can be transitory or long lasting, but meds can make the experience much more comfortable and bearable.

I had the same thing and it turned out to be Celiacs disease. Still not a walk in the park, but better than cancer. I’m glad your FI’s ok. 🙂
