So for the past 2 weeks I have been having some tummy troubles. First, I had diarrhoea and nausea, with a burning sensation in my stomach. After about a week of that, the nausea went away and all I am left with is a slight burning sensation that gets worse with hunger, loud rumbling coming from my tummy and constant belching. I've been to the doctor about 5 times and did a stool test, haven't heard from them so I'm guessing nothing's been found. I also feel nauseous after waking up in the morning, is that due to the stomach acid just sitting in my tummy?

My stomach feels kinda tight and is quite bloated and burny-feeling, or maybe h pylori or something. I don't have a fever, haven't really lost any weight and don't feel dizzy or weak. My mum is having the same symptoms with the burning tummy and rumbling, and I think my dad has a bit of rumbling and belching too. I've also been getting pains in the middle kind of band of my stomach, just below my ribs, particularly the right side, I don't think it's anything to do with my gallbladder, because my parents are coming down with the same sort of symptoms. Thoughts please? Very worried! Thanks :)

Hi Cassie,

Welcome to Healing Well . We're glad you've joined us.

Well, it is strange that you are all coming down with GERD symptoms at the same time (as it is not a communicable disease) but if your eating habits are all similar it is possible that you're all starting to get it. My aunt and uncle both have GERD - it started at the same time and flares up at the same time because they eat the exact same food together at the same time every day (too soon before bed).

Your symptoms do sound like GERD to me (the symptoms you've described are ones I have to this day). Your doctor probably tested your stool looking for H. Pylori and if you didn't hear anything, the test was probably negative. However, if you're not feeling well I would highly suggest going back to your doctor.

Here are some things you can do to help the symptoms if it is indeed GERD:

Please, feel free to browse around as you please, and of course ask questions as need be.

Again, welcome!
