I have been having heartburn for a couple years, body itching with no rash, pain behind my right shoulder blade?
Hi, I have been having heartburn for a couple years, it has gotten much worse and has nothing to do with what I eat, been on prescribed medications omeprazole 40 mg daily and added ranitidine 150 mg twice daily – this was added couple months ago and its nor working. The last 3 months it has gotten worse to the point I get sick . And then the heartburn will hang on for several days not to the extreme but it’s there. I have also started a month ago having all over body itching with no rash, especially my jaw and neck. Im also having pain behind my right shoulder blade from time to time, the pain lasts for a few hours, at its worse the pain is about a 7. Its not from the way I sleep or exercise or work I have been paying attention to this also. For the past month I have not been sleeping well at all. I wake up several times a night, sometimes drenched in sweat. I have been getting 3 – 5 hours of sleep every night, I’ve always needed at least 8 hours. Very tired all day.
I am 49 years old, female,
Can you help me with this?
Hi and welcome to question doctors .com
These symptoms may refer to anxiety or gall bladder inflammation and somehow a thyroid disorder… It needs further investigations. .get an abdominal USG done..thyroid profile and try doing yoga as it helps relieving the symptoms of GERD..
