Hi. I am a 47 year old male and new to the forum. Hoping someone can help and give me some idea of what is happening to me. I have been suffering pain from waking in the morning to going to bed at night. The pain is above my belly button and as recently started to move to my left and right sides. The pain can spend up to a hour or so on my right side in line with my belly button then move to my left side and then to above my belly button. There is no set patten to where the pain travels but its mainly upper left and right and above my belly button. The pain is not severe but is very uncomfortable. The pain will always be there but not at the uncomfortable stage. I have been suffering with this for 12 months if not longer. My GP says I have IBS and prescribed me with Mebervirene which do not help me. My GP thinks I may have HPylori and is waiting on results from a stool sample. My toilet habits are fine with no traces of blood or dark coloured stools, however I will get painful cramps after a bowel movement but not all the time. I do not suffer constipation or diarreha. I have not lost any weight and my appetite is not what it used to be I can still eat a full meal if it is put in front on me. I do get waves of sickness but not always vomiting and sometimes dizziness, but again not all the time. My main concern is the chronic pain that does not go away. I have forgotten what it is like to be pain free. The pain in my abdomen is not painful when i press in the area the pain is but is very warm to touch, warmer that other parts of my abdomen. However the pain will worsen with work duties or washing my car as a example. A little history of my health is. i suffered a duodenal ulcer over 20 years ago and have always had a feeling of hardness above my belly button. I have also been diagnosed with high blood pressure and raised cholesterol levels and treated with omerprazole for acid reflux.
