Hello -
An_253859 posted:
Just wondering if anyone can relate to me. This is my first post and I'm very nervous about my situation.
For about 5 days now I've been burping (small burps) and when I do, I taste blood.
The doctors office doesn't seem very alarmed and could not get me in...but said to call back if I start vomiting or have more violent symptoms. Needless to say, I feel very nervous.
With that said, I'm wondering if anyone out there have any idea of what this might be?
I have sore throat (not the kind you have when you have a cold).
I burp tasting blood and don't know why.
This is what has changed,
I've taken 2 lodoral 12.5mgs for a Thyroid test and then 2 days later I experienced this.
So I've been drinking licorice tea which seems to help.
I get tightness in my stomach (sometimes)
I have what they call in TCM (hiccups) in my sleep (on and off).
Licorice (natural "Panda") seems to help me soothe my throat, but I'm still getting the same symptoms.
Can anyone relate or have any comments (ideas)?
Thank you.
