I have been experiencing pain in my stomach for about 12 - 15 months, at the start it would be mild discomfort which would then go excruciating pain for 1-2 days after a weekend drinking session.
Over the course of the 12-15 month the pain has increased where currently its becoming very painful just on a normal day and still excruciating if I drink alcohol at the weekend (which i rarely do now).
So far I have had a Gastroscopy (down throat) and found nothing, a full stomach CT scan again nothing found, various blood tests including stomach liver, colon cancer tests which are all within normal range yet the pain continues to get worse. Im not sure what the next test/scan to take would be,
Unfortuantly I live in a country where English is not even a second language,
I started off taking Rantadine which worked for a few months but then became ineffective then i changed to Miracid (omeprazole)2x20mg a day on doctor request which again worked for a while now after 6 months of taking them dont seem to have any effect. Iv also recently took a course of amoxycillin for 2 weeks alongside Miracid which completely stopped the pain for 12 days but then came back towards the end of the course
Its all getting frustrating now especially when you go to the doctors have these tests/scans and they say "everything normal" when you know its not and even worse when i have to pay for everything privatley.
Im 42 yr about 10 kg over weight so that could be a partial reason.
Has anybody had a similar pains and can offer any general advice pharmacutical tablets, or alternative options.
