Blazezar, have you had an upper endoscopy done? What did the report from that test show?

I can understand having pain in the chest and the arm with acid reflux, but I'm not sure how the leg pain and eye pain would fit into things. Have you been evaluated by a good physical therapist to see if the overall discomfort is muscular in origin?
Blazezar replied to calgal37's response:
yes i have had an upper endoscopy done. Gastritis, hiatal hernia, acid reflux and something else cant remember whats it called.

Heart test r all good. mri or the brain is good. blood work show is good. stress test is good

calgal37 replied to Blazezar's response:
Blazezar, you may want to try some dietary elimination to see if your symptoms might be related to food intolerance. In some cases, people can react to food groups with symptoms that can make life miserable. The 4 big food groups that seem to be most often the cause of problems are: gluten (wheat, rye and barley), eggs, dairy and soy. There are food tests that can be done. But you can also try elimination diets on your own. Simply take a single food group out of your diet for about 4 weeks and see if you note any positive changes. If nothing changes, add that food group back and take another one out of your diet.

Yes, it takes a bit of time, but it can be very worth it.

One of the bigger problems these days seems to be with gluten. It produces a LARGE number of symptoms that can include: fatigue, rashes, acid reflux, peripheral neuropathy, brain fog, weight gain, changes in bowel habits, etc., etc.
