I am a 36 year old female.
For almost 2 weeks I have had daily nausea/queasiness, and discomfort/cramps in my stomach, mainly upper but sometimes lower down. Also cramps immediately after eating and for a couple of hours after, then my stomach feels very 'empty' and gurgling. Doesnt seems to matter what I eat - fatty or healthy foods have the same effect. Feel like i want to burp but it doesnt really help. My appetite is ok, once i sit down to eat im really hungry (though hurting!) and bowels normal.
I visited my doctor and he gave me Omeprazole 20mg, and said I probably just have a 'dodgy' stomach possibly caused by stress. He gave me a physical exam and said my liver is not enlarged and he can't feel any gallstones. I also started taking a course of probiotics recommended by my local health shop.
After 3 days on this i started to feel a bit better - the nausea reduced to just a bit during the day time. In fact yesterday i felt almost normal and was very pleased. Today however, it seems i am back to square one - bad nausea, cramps (around my ovaries area as well as up high) - i have a lot of saliva in my mouth, and a bad taste that doesnt go when i have mints. I'm very fed up and concerned as i thought i was getting better. It seems not..
A month ago i had very severe tonsilitus and was on strong course of antibiotics - could this have any bearing on my symptoms?
If this was Acid Reflux wouldn't the omeprazole have worked on these symptoms? I can't go back to my doc until next week, and i'm getting anxious (I am an anxious person and have been stressed lately) - what could this all be?
Im an old member who's back to get involved again - i used to be just plain 'haze', but lost all my login details!
