What if my symptoms are always more or less the same and in or around the same area? For me, I had heartburn and ended up on PPi's for about 15 years. Then I found out the dangers of longterm PPi use and so I weaned off them with the help of some herbs. However, for the last 5 years, after weaning off, I have had burning pains in the area where my gallbladder/liver is located and with time it extended to above my right hip, and is sometimes at the back around my kidney area. Always burning type pain. I also get occasional tingling knees. It never seems to happen on the left side. I had an urological ultrasound but it showed nothing in the kidney or gallbladder. They expected stones somewhere, I suppose. The Dr then assumed that it must be structural. A naturopath told me my organs were fine but I may have a stress induced gastritis. But isn't gastritis typically on the other(left) side? SIBO was suggested due to the long term PPi use. I was never scoped, but I tested negative for h Pylori. I do regular body scans and I regularly tell myself that I am fine. I am aware that there were two incidents in my teenage years which were quite difficult for me. One was violent and the other was emotional. I have not been able to connect the emotional one with anything from my childhood yet as much as I've tried. If heatburn, GERD, reflux and the gastritis that typically comes with it is a mind body issue, and I have chosen to believe that it is, do I need to treat the gastritis that is caused by it? And if so, how? PPi's are not a good idea, although they always worked for me. The Sphincter on the stomach is controlled by a neural pathway and so I understand that this may be the problem, but if it opens and allows acid up to the eosaphagus or even downwards to below the stomach, do I need to treat that and is that causing the burning sensations? What would I treat that with? I know this is TMS because the one time the pains went away for 2 weeks, it was after I was taking chanca piedra for what I thought was gallstones. Perfect placebo example, but after 2 weeks the pain crept back in. That, to me, was the dead giveaway that makes perfect sense, and yet I am still finding it tough to beat this thing. There are a couple of questions in there, right? Will I need to do some Psychotherapy?
