Two years now and I have been diagnosed with chronic gastritis. My stomach burns and stings starting with the morning as soon as I get up until I lie down to sleep. Been on hydrocodone and oxycodone for pain and the doctor wants to try nortriptyline. Just wondered if it would work on stomach burning and stinging pain : (
Has the doctor ever done any testing to see what the source of the pain might be? Have you tried any of the proton pump inhibtors such as Prilosec or Protonix? Seems like a rather unusual avenue trying opiates for stomach pain and then to try an antidepressant. Not sure of the reasoning.
