After scouring the net my symptoms have sent me here and this seems like the place to be.
The only symptoms i seem to have are..
Extreme stomach and back pain
Bringing up stomach acid/bile, yellow crap when i burp.
Anyway, this all started last sunday (13th) I was up all night with stomach pains, i just thought it was trapped wind as thats what i felt like as ive been there with it before in the past. Come 6-7am the pain had gone, id managed a couple of hours sleep but the pain kept waking me up, it was bearable anyway.
Come last thursday night around 10.30pm i felt that familiar pain starting, but this time it just got worse and worse, it was all over my stomach and around my back, excruciation pain, so bad by midnight the misses had called an ambulance. Now im pretty tolerant with pain, but this was like nothing ive felt before, (so i thought) Anyway, after spending a few hours up the hospital waiting to see a doctor the pain subsided. He didnt seem to have much of a clue, said it could be gallstones and get to my GP and book an appointment to see someone about
it. So i took the 4 mile walk home at 4am from the hospital, thought a nice walk would do me could.
See my doctor monday (23rd), id felt ok over the weekend, ive made an appointment but that could take months. He felt my stomach over, tender and hurt to touch right in the middle, below the ribcage and said its acid reflux and prescribed me Omeprazole which ive been taking.
Come last night, around midnight that same pain again, and this time it was even worse that last week, it didnt think it could get any worse. I tried sitting upright all night in bed, no laying down, walking around, come 5am the pain hadnt got any better just got worse so i drove up the hospital, this aint normal and i want answers. I had my urine and blood taken and they came back fine, given a few injections and a drip and sent back home around 8am with a prescript
ion for Buscopon which i will pick up 2moro. By 9am i was in bed, absolutely shattered. The pain was there but whatever they had given my was probably numbing the pain, by 10am i was awake again in pain, managed to get back to sleep within half hour and when i woke up at around 2pm i was ok, just feeling like crap.
Tbh, the pain is was bad if it happens again i dont know what to do. Ive not taken anything for it apart from what the doctor gave me monday and they have not seemed to help.
Since the 2nd attack ive changed my diet, ive been eating hardly anything, just to low fat milk and bran flakes, brown bread and water, thats about
it. Mind you tho, i thought i cant go on like that so yesterday i had a dinner which was a kipper, boiled potatos and salad and i did share a pack of hola hoops with my son around 10pm. Could these be to blame????
My lifestyle and eating habits have been poor so ive only got myself to blame really. Eating crap food, not having set meals, just binging on stuff like junk, lying down after eating. But i dont want to go on like that so change is in order.
Im 33, male, 5'9 and overweight, id say around 14 stone. Im now afraid to eat anything incase it happens again, i really wouldnt no what to do if it happened again as the doctor at the hospital said they cant do nothing until they find the root of the problem but he said that its stomach related and i need a camera down my throat for that.
Any help would be much appreciated, anything to help with the pain if it happens again or to prevent it from happening again.
