I have studied all the reports you have sent to me.
Important things are :
1. Pangastritis 2. Solitary Rectal Ulcer. 3. Anemia.
Since she has persistent problems related to the GERD and Gastritis , this can aonly be resolved with drugs she is taking like pantoprazole. I recommend a combinatipn of Pantoprazole with Domperidom which will help in GERD. At this age , she has significant weight loss , that can not be neglected. I would like to know that she has anorexia , or she has fear of eating due to gastritis symptoms post meal?
You have not mentioned about her Blood Pressure , ECG , Chest Xray.
My most of the concern is about her weight loss , as at this age at could be malignancy.
Please do tell me her menstrual history , i also advice you for her breast examination (self or by a gynecologist/surgeon) to see for any lump. I also advice you to discuss add to her a drug called as Escitalopram (SSRI). Please review with the above. Thanks
Everything seems to be realted to "Acid peptic disease"
Solitary Rectal Ulcer has to be kept into consideration , at present , the report doesn't suggest any sign of malignant ulcer , but we should mark it , and follow it up after 6 months.
I don't find any reason to get her into more investigations , and consulting another specialist for this problem , since she has already been evaluated by specialists.
You should know that sleep disturbances and stress , increases acid peptic diseases and GERD.
So, i want her to sleep peacefully , i don't mind adding a drug to her for her sleep problems. If she takes good sleep , you will notice a lot of improvement in her symptoms.
Now your other question about SSRI. SSRI are used for treatment of depression , but they have other roles in other diseases too. i find SSRI or drugs like amitryptilline very effective in Acid peptic diseases. Infact i have seen , in one of your prescriptions , that she was prescribed Tab Tryptomer 10 mg , i don't know , she took it or not , or she got some benefit or not.
So, consider giving her SSRI , and some people get a good sleep with SSRI , so if she gets , it's a good thing , if she doesn't i suggest an addition of drug like etizolam.
I hope i am able to solve your query , still if you have any query , please ask me. Wish her a healthy life. Dr Anshul Varshney
