Abdomen pain with normal stool - is this IBS? I had gastic flu the end of March, and a week later generally was symtom free, I was under a lot of stress and so blamed stomach issues on that, however in the last 4 weeks I havent had the stress but Ive had abdominal pain, not localised or continuous but daily. Its not constant and not severe, generally feels like trapped gas, bloating slightly. get a lot of gurgling sounds at night when I go to bed.. I eat a normal range of foods as I have done, dont drink much alcohol or fizzy drinks and generally stay away from junk food. And dont as far as I know have any food intolerances my diest hasnt really changed from before when I didnt have any issues. I have no acid reflux, normal stools, no blood etc.
I went to the docs and did a stool test this came back normal no action, he did prescribe 1 week of 20mg Omeprazole twice a day. This made no real difference what I did notice was whilst taking this I felt extreme hunger pains about 2 hrs after eating a large meal. Since stopping the tablets this has reduced the hunger pain after eating quite a bit. So not sure if the tablets caused me to have these hunger pains? I tried reducing gluten for a couple of days but this made no difference - I dont eat a lot of gluten anyway as mainly have oats for breakfast. Im not sure if the gatic flu has cuased the upset
Im clueless if I have IBS?, tapeworm( although I havent noticed any signs of worms bt not that easy to spot? gastritis or something else - tempted to try DGL liquorice as Ive heard this works for gastric problems - anyone else had similar symptoms and found out what it is? or a solution?
Any help appreciated as its consuming my life lately
