Inherited disorder: Gilbert's disease is liver condition caused by an inherited gene mutation. It is common and generally does not require treatment. Therefore, your right upper quadrant pain is likely due to something else. Your normal tests represent good news (no serious problems these tests would find) and bad news (still don't have diagnosis for your pain). Keep your follow up appts; report new changes. ...Read more

Should I worry about pancreatic cancer? Urq disc.&occ floating stool. Normal stool tests, CT scan, colonoscopy, u.S., hida scan, endoscopy=gerd/gast. I'm 34
Probably not: It appears that all test are normal except for the egd or endoscopy showing gastritis.

My suggestion is that you sit down with your doctor and discuss all tests results and treatment plan. Good luck! ...Read more

Yes: Gerd or gastroesophageal reflux disease can be thought of as a really bad case of heartburn that just won't quit. If your reflux gets worse when you lay down, then that discomfort can make it very difficult to get to sleep, eg cause insomnia. There are many medications, some over-the-counter, to treat gerd. Better yet, alter your lifestyle to minimize risk. Or change your sleeping position. ...Read more
Common, aggravates: Agree with other answers. If overweight or obese, often get at least some symptom relief with weight loss, likely a combo of diet change and the weight loss itself affecting lower esophageal sphincter function. Just another reason to get weight down, if overweight. Easier said than done. ...Read more
Studies have shown:
That the differential diagnosis of heartburn symptoms is quite broad, but according to Dr. Harmon and others in Therapeutic Advances in Gastroenterology, there are five major causes:
Medications, functional dyspepsia, GERD, peptic ulcer disease, and cancer.
GERD may have no symptoms of heartburn whatsoever. Here is a review to read: http://tinyurl. Com/nqnv9qr ...Read more
Chronic Inflammation: GERD, or gastroesophageal reflux disease leads to alkaline reflux that changes the barrier lining of the esophagus (the tube just before your stomach).
