Over the past 18 months I have been thro quite a stressful time which culminated in a distressing episode in May 2009. After this episode I began to feel unwell with indigestion which then led onto acid reflux type type symptoms. An endoscopy only showed slight acid reflux and I've also had an ultra sound scan which ruled out gall bladder problems. I've also had blood tests and my liver function is normal and I am not suffering from h-pylori. My doctor thinks that this is all stress / anxiety related and has put me on anti-depressants which have helped as I began to get very upset about how I was feeling. I still get burning in my mouth and chest to a lesser or greater extent after anything I eat and drink but it is not something I get a night. Sometimes the discomfort travels to my back (between my shoulder blades) and I can have spells of belching. In the morning I feel ok and it worsens as the day goes on. At times I have wondered whether Burning Mouth Syndrome could be part of the problem. I'm really at a loss as to what to do to relieve these symptoms as they can be really unpleasant and distressing.
