Ever since March 4th (Nearly 3 weeks now) I've had a constant nauseous stomach pain after eating a lot of popcorn at 1am while I was watching a show, I didn't lie down or go to bed until like 3 hours after I had eaten the popcorn. Sometimes the pain is barely noticeable at all but other times it makes me feel terrible. I usually burp a lot with it aswell as it feels like trapped wind and when the pain is terrible it can get better after I burp a few times but the stomach ache would still be there but just less painful, when I burp acid reflux occurs aswell but it's rather random. I've also noticed that I'd wake up everyday with a dry mouth, I also wake up once between 4-6am every night but I always fall asleep again rather quickly within 5 minutes so it hasn't affected my sleeping that much.
Last Monday (19th March) I went to see my GP about it and he said it's probably nothing and gave me Buscopan which is supposed to reduce the pain although it hasn't helped at all with the pain, I've also tried Gaviscon but the constant pain was still there, although it didn't hurt as much.
For some context I'm 18 and sitting my final exams in like 3 months so it could all just be down to anxiety but this constant stomach pain lasting for 3 weeks is definitely making me more nervous about the symptoms, when I was 16 sitting my exams I experienced a lot of change in bowel habits from constipation to diarrhoea until I did my final exam, the day after I felt completely fine, but I haven't had any change in bowel habits this time.
I feel like this could be GERD but if that were the case then surely having Gaviscon would've stopped the pain? I'm really stuck on what I should do next.
