About a year ago one night I experienced a great feeling of illness. I felt as if I had been poisoned and I felt extremely uncomfortable in my stomach. After a few hours this went and I was right as rain. Some months later I experienced a sort of pain in my windpipe, seemed to occur when I was sitting up uncomfortably in bed or awkward position sitting, sometimes when walking around. It seemed to start in my throat and proceed downwards, like a bubble of pain which was trapped. Then I noticed I was burping a lot. This all came and went over a period of months. Towards the end of last year I started to feel really sick, plus this knawing sensation in my gut, often during the day and especially at night. I used to feel so hungry with it and food seemed to help it for a while and also liquids. I went to the doctor and he thought it could be a kidney infection. Took some antibiotics and things were not so bad. Left it for a few months then all started up again. Took cabbage & liquorice capsules for a while which felt better but when finished those it started again. Then took Alfalfa which helped but still feeling the knawing etc. Finally went back to the doctor who wanted to give me Omeprazole but luckily I had been warned about it as to excruciating wind and pain and I asked for Ranitidine. I had a really bad night last night (had not go the prescription yet) as woke up feeling really ill as if I had been poisoned and had the terrible knawing sensation in my stomach. Got up and walked around and drank lots of water. Some time later... after passing wind a few times, I went off to sleep. In the morning my stomach felt as if a truck had gone over it but the knawing had stopped and I no longer felt ill. I took the first Fanitidine this morning. I still feel sick and the knawing is still there but not as bad, at the moment. Doctor has asked me to have blood test and to arrange for me to see a specialist with a view to the camera down the throat. Has anyone else experienced the above regarding the feeling of being so ill that they feel like they have been poisoned along with the knawing in the stomach and then it going off after a while?
