    Hi Gabrielle,

    Don't be scared but I think you should seek medical attention. When I was diagnosed with IBS I was also diagnosed with a hiatus hernia. What other symptons do you have? Do you get any relief from anything that you may have tried. You may be dehydrated. I had swelling in the upper stomach and the right side of the abdomen.

      Hi Vivian,

      I have an appointment with my doctor today so I'll definitely be asking about that. I have done blood tests, ultrasound, chest X-rays, I've done a test where I have to blow in a balloon to check for stomach bacteria all came up clear. I've have just started taking sandoz I'm not a big fan medication as I more of natural but it's gotten bad.

      I've been having pain in back of neck and head my coughing is constant when I wake up in mornings I get lightheaded and just want to cough it's worse at night and early morning.

      And thank you for replying Vivian I never would of thought IBS or hiatus hernia.

    I had the same problem like acid reflux before I got diagnosed with ibs. Your symptoms don't sound like ibs though.

    You need to see the doctor, he will probably give you omperpazole, which stop the acid reflux, and it settles your stomach, you take one in the morning and then whatever you eat won't cause you pain. Are you eating anything that you don't usually eat? You could have a allergy to something, or you could have gluten intorelence.
