What diagnoses do you have currently
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

None at all. I have had chest x ray...clear. Had several kidney infections then x ray was clear other than scarring. Have given up with N H S.

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 4 years ago.
GERD acid reflux can account for your symptoms....
but there are other possibilities.

At this point I would do a scope down to the stomach as stomach ulcer of esophatitis could also be accounting for the night sweats.

Thyroid hormone should be checked.
Estrongen panel should be checked.

OK. If you have further questions or details, use reply to expert.
