Stomach bug 6 weeks ago. Stomach burning. EGD neg gastritis & h pyroli. Was on 40 mg Protonix. Now on 60 mg Dexilant. Bland diet. Cause of burning?
Stomach burning: Do you experience heartburn or actual gerd? Dexilant is also a ppi like protonix. Occasionally reflux is due to reflux of bile and not acidic material, and in these cases, ppi's are usually ineffective. In addition to a bland diet, avoid fatty,fried or oily foods, alcohol, caffeine and nicotine to see if your symptoms resolve. ...Read more

DR said inflammation on EGD was "over read" by pathologist as Barrett's- on 40mg nexium (esomeprazole) 2x day, chance of esophageal cancer? 31 yo, pics attached
Strange: Why did the doctor order an EGD? Did he bother to take a history and do a physical exam first? Why did you go to the doctor? Do you have difficulty swallowing or dyspepsia? Why are you taking Nexium (esomeprazole)? I have NEVER heard of 31 y.o. with Barrett's or esophageal cancer. Doctor's don't get paid to think. They get paid to DO THINGS to patients, such as EGD's. You should ask the doctor some questions. ...Read more

Derm? Fake nails redone after a mo. Noted pinkie has green brown spot abt 1/4 CM long vertical ctr nail top, just below where nail extends off finger. Caucasian. 1 sev. Dys. Nevi. Scared melanoma!
Distal nail streak: It is not likely that a spot starting in the distal portion of the nail bed represents a melanoma. More likely this represents a bacterial infection with pseudomonas. You should see your dermatologist and get a bacterial and a fungal culture done. The fungal culture will also tell if you have yeast. Treatment can be prescribed after a diagnosis is established. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
