After lots of testing and misdiagnoses, it was finally

Resolved Question:

After lots of testing and misdiagnoses , it was finally decided i have GERD ( Gastro relfux) I am on 40mg of omeprazole. It was working at first but in the last 3 weeks i have had attack after attack, which starts with eggy burps and as time passes stomach cramps start, which gets more intense to the point i cant move at all. It can last for upto 10 hours and ill be sick and feel faint and all hot and bothered. Even feel like i need to do a poo but it doesnt come out. The doctors then prescribed me with tramadol which didnt even touch the pain. So then they tried me with buscopan saying it works in a different way, but still didnt help. Its like once the pain is there it just wont go no matter what i do. Literally i dread my day soon as i get a burp as i know whats going to happen. I thought at first it was certain foods but now it doesnt matter what i eat and i cant cope no more

This is a bacteria that can cause refractory GERD

It is treated with oral antibiotics
