I don't know what my problem is over the past two to three weeks. I think the way I sit at work has something to do with my issues a great deal, and has in the past also. It seems like everything is pushing upward into my chest. And the bloat feeling is unbelievable. What annoys me the most is the bad catch feeling I have in my left side, like a stitch in my side, not to mention the tightness in my upper gut extending all the way across. I've experienced this before, but not like this. And I stay highly stressed over this and that is probably causing 3/4 of it and making it worse.
When I am doing something to occupy my mind, like yardwork, I have no problem. I have this weird feeling also in the middle part of my back kind of down low, and it is tender. I hate these weird tingling, stinging sensations all over the upper abdomen. And I can feel the gas in my left side. This stuff is driving me crazy. It eventually works itself out of my system but not until months later.
Does anyone else have this problem??? I have no problem going to the bathroom, I'm just not going a great deal as I am eating less amounts of food trying to lose some much needed weight.
