Hey guys ice signed up to this forum specifically to see if I can see if anybody else out there has these same symptoms .

I'm a 29 yr old male . Good health , good diet . Since about March I had been getting what I can only describe as not breathing properley, it was as if I had to consciously manually breathe as it wouldn't do it by itself. As the months went on I had 2 weeks of where it felt as if my throat had closed up , like somebody was strangling me . That went away , but I'd also started to have some belly bloating, and a painful sternum - like my stomach was being pushed up into my rib cage . Especially worse when standing up , and now in the last couple of weeks it seemed to have got worse . I've been to the docs twice in the last couple of months who didn't seem to worry too much about it all , I was prescribed some lansrople? For heartburn .

What's really getting me down now though . Is last Friday I was going to the toilet like 15 times , pure diareoah , and as the weekend went on I wasn't going as much . Then Monday night came and I had really bad stomach ache - like a 7/10 job . Which has now so let moved onto my lower right abdomen - it feels like a burning sensation , even worse to walk or even to talk . Laying in a hot bath seemed to make it go away though when I was lying in there . Buts it's just not shifting and now it's Friday . I've been feeling the occasional tiredness when I could barely keep my eyes open .

I'm worried that this is a reoccurring problem , it's the same type of pain I had 2 years ago . I done the tests and had scans and they found nothing , just a bit of inflammation came up on the blood test , then one day it disappeared ?!

Do I have a yearly flare up of something that I don't know . And have anyone of you had the exact same problems .

I'd be intrigued to hear to my mind at ease .

      Thankyou tonito for your comment . My pain has started to ease now - which is a good sign . But I will be going for more tests to see what is the culprit after all this time !
