Hi! I am 35 yr old female that started having upper left quardrent discomfort in June of this year. I was also having excessive belching. I had a sonogram showing mildly enlarged spleen of 13cm. I pushed to do bloodwork for hpylori and tested positive for the antibody, did treatment. Saw a GI and did a endoscopy 9/11 and showed neg for hpylori and celiacs. I was still having the same symptoms in waves. GI suggested a breath test for SIBO, seeing as it seemed my symptoms improved, I didn't do it. Now I am 4-5 weeks pregnant and it seems they are more constant. I'm terrified I have this condition and how this will affect the nutrition absorbtion of my baby. Anyone with experience? All I read was that even with meds it can still return.View Thread
So last Sat i started to experience an ache right in my upper rib cage, where my stomach is located. It was more of a dull ache and felt like something was there. I noticed with this that I had excessive burping. My stools were normal prob an extra 2-3x a day. Tue I experienced a bout of diarreah. I still experienced this dull ache, it would sometimes move from the stomach area to right under my breasts. This sensation has been pretty constant. Since last week I had twp bouts of diarreah only, and normal stools. Yesterday into today I have that dull ache higher up so I went and saw the physician assistant. She pressed hard on my belly while breathing out and the sode i have the dull ache i was sensative to. She said she isnt't sure but will order a sono of my belly. She ordered prilosec to take for 1-2 wks to see if it helps and to treat it as a ulcer/reflux. I told her I don't have any burning. She said if the meds don't help, and the sono is clear, she will order a scope to look inside. Anyonr have any ideas? I feel like I eould rather know what it is before treating it with meds for what it may not be. I am worried it could be colon cancer (i am a 35 yr old f); she said usually issues eith colon cancer present constipation issues.View Thread
I am 35 yr old female. I eat a high fiber diet. I have not had a change in my diet, but for the last few days I have had a dull ache under my left breaat, where my stomach is. I do notice i can burp a lot as well. My stool is the same, normal, and i can go 2-3x a day. I can feel gas pains throughout my stomach area, but tr discomfort stems from where my stomach is. I am currently ovulating,and do have PCoS but never have issues like this. Anyone have any ideas as to what this is? I need to go out of town at the end of the week and may not be able to get ro a dr til next week.View Thread
