I have gastritis and GERD. My symptoms become much worse around menstruation and ovulation. Is this typical?

I have gastritis and GERD. My symptoms become much worse around menstruation and ovulation. Is this typical?

Typical? No: ...but it certainly isn't unheard of. Many women have abdominal complaints which seem related to their menstrual cycle. I would recommend that you consider omeprazole or ranitidine for as many days as you need it each month, and then get off of it in between. If that helps your problem, no other management is probably necessary. Good luck. ...Read more

Heartburn after ovulation, back aches, sore breast but on the outer sides, tired, hungry. Neg. Preg. Tst. Past two days bd twice am i pregnant?

Testing too early : Wow. There is no physical way your symptoms represent pregnancy. The mothers body doesn't even have a way to know it pregnant till about two weeks in. Testing before the next period is missed is worthless. The test cannot pick up pregnancy till at least fourteen days after impregnation. ...Read more

I'm 14 days after ovulation and I've been feeling dull aches in my abdomen sides and lower back and a little bit of heartburn could I be pregnant ?

See below: You could be pregnant or the discomfort may be your menses coming on. If you are pregnant that would not be the cause of your symptoms since a 1-2 week old fetus is too tiny to cause abdominal or back pain. ...Read more

I'm 10 days past ovulation my left breast has a burning sensation headaches and heartburn.  Could this be a early pregnancy symptom or something else.

Yes: These could be signs of early pregnancy. Additional signs are nausea, sensation of abdominal bloating, dull lower abdominal cramping, sensation of fullness in the breast, and backache.

Ok actually im ovulating right now but my breast are sore and im feeling bloated also having chronic lower back pain plus heart burn could i be preg?

No: These are 'pregnancy symptoms' but they are also the usual symptoms around ovulation. If you are 100% certain you are ovulating now (you don't say how) you could get pregnant now, but would not be pregnant until after ovulation and fertilization and implantation: about a week from now. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed GERD & I get heartburns almost once a week. I usually take a Pantoprezole tablet then - is it safe to take it so often?

I have been diagnosed GERD & I get heartburns almost once a week. I usually take a Pantoprezole tablet then - is it safe to take it so often?

Talk to doc but: First you need to take the Pantoprazole 30-60 mins before your first meal of the day. There is also concern that chronic use of this type of drug increases the risk in getting pneumonia and possibly traveler's diarrhea. If taken only when heartburn starts, then a Histamine 2 reverse agonist (Pepcid, Zantac) may be more appropriate. ...Read more

What else causes frequent severe heartburn besides gerd?

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
