Hi, I recently experienced a recurrence of stomach pain that typically occurs at around 4am in the morning. The onset would occur when I turn over in bed. It builds into a severe acid like pain at the top of my stomach. At it’s peak I will find myself doubled up in significant pain, I will become hot and clammy, feeling on the verge of passing out/fainting. The pain will continue for about 30 mins and begin to subside and I may be left with a aggravated stomach ache for a day after. It appears randomly and fortunately not every night. I could got days/weeks without another episode.
This started back in 2015. I went through a series of camera test and was diagnosed with Hiatus Hernia and Diverticulosis. I had h.Pylori and coeliac tests, both being negative. An ultrasound of my major organs, which apparently showed kidney stones, although a further MRI for Kidney stones was negative.
I thought I had found a trigger food and hadn’t experienced an episode for over 18 months. During that 18 months I have changed my diet a lot and only eat plant based foods, don’t smoke or drink a great deal and eat generally healthily. I was disappointed to get another episode.
I revisited a GP who, given my history, decided to setup an urgent referral to a Gastroenterologist, which I am waiting to hear from.
