    Upper Stomach pain not releived by PPI's

    alvarado10 posted:
    I finally seen a GI doctor after 3 months when my symptoms first appeared. The only concern is my almost constant mid upper stomach discomfort/burning pain is not responding well to me the medication but does help reduce the pain.

    I'm due for a endoscopy in 1 week, i'm negative for H. Plyori and never had had reflux symptoms before until three months ago. I don't drink, smoke and rarely take OTC pain releivers.

    I lost 10 pounds (mostly within the first two months) due to a reduce appetite from the discomfort/pain but stayed steady at 170lbs. I have no trouble swollowing nor does it hurt to eat.

    Any suggestions?
