My story is about my son Michael. On Valentine's day, 2015 I got a call from Michael explaining that he had thrown up and it looked like coffeee grounds. I told him he needed to get to the emergency room right away because he was bleeding. A short time later he called me to tell me that he made it to the ER and they had diagnosed him with esophogeal cancer, stage IV with metas
Hello everyone! I am an 18 year old girl who has been throwing up my whole life. I have always had a bad relationship with food, but now it's worse than I could ever imagined. For a while I just thought i couldn't eat greasy or fried foods because i would be nauseous all of the time. When i was 16 I was diagnosed with a peptic ulcer in my stomach. So for the next few years, i was treated for th
I've had indigestion issues all my life but at age 35 I began taking PPI's which eliminated any need for antacids and I could eat/drink anything without concern. Two years ago, age 58, I woke up with the taste of acid in my mouth which I had never experienced.

Being constipated is something very familiar to me and has been something I've struggled with for as long as I can remember. I thought having a bowel movement maybe once a week was normal. I had always had stomach pains, but I just dismissed them. When I was 15 my stomach pain got significantly worse. We finally went to the Doctor and it turned out that I was lactose intolerant. After cutting d
This all started sometime in June this year.. I had lunch and slept off... On waking up, it was just like my whole chest to stomach area was filled up. I had never felt anything like it brfore.. I was so scared because of Covid-19 so I didn't go to the hospital... I got anti biotics because I felt I just had chest congestion due to a cold. It got worse till I later discovered it might be

I started getting problems with reflux in 2014, I would get the usual heart burn after eating certain types of acid forming foods which became frequent, i used to drink alcohol and spicy foods. the problem progressed to central/upper chest pain which I first thought was a heart attack.

I thought I would share my story. I am in my early twenties and have been suffering with IBS for 7 years. Before this illness started, I was a straight A student, very ambitious, confident and sociable. I first started seeing symptoms after I was pushed into a dirty lake by someone as a practical joke and I ingested some of the water. Since then, my grades dropped drastically,

I remember it like it was yesterday. It was June 25, the day that Michael Jackson died. I was watching it from the family flooring store I was working out on my laptop, and I had been drinking V-8 juice and the V-8 fruit juice when it hit me.
