I really need some words of encouragement because I am starting to become so depressed and miserable.  Please, do my symptoms ring any bells?

constant lower abdominal pain

no hunger and feel full quicker

feel bit more pain and discomfort after eating

bit of nausea here and there but more often at the start

doctors and specialists say it is a post viral infection.  I have done every test.

    Sounds like IBS if all your tests are clear.  Ask your doctor.

      Hi, they ruled out IBS as I have normal bowel movements, no diarrhea or constipation. Just constant stomach pain.  Specialist at first did say it could be a post viral irritable bowel as I had stomach bug six months earlier, but said it would resolve itself but could take a while.

      Sometimes, IBS can occur after a stomach bug.  Maybe try some probiotics in case your gut flora has got unbalanced.

    Sounds like you are having stomatch ulcer or so. Go to have endoscopy or gastroenterologist, or specialist. Meanwhile take zantac and stop drinking alcohol, cafeinn and stop eating spicy food. I hope this will help.

      I have had gastroscopy, colonoscopy, CT, ultrasound, everything really. I am seeing a specialist at the moment. I am getting an MRI in a couple of days.  Can ulcers take a while to appear? In my colonoscopy they did find some tiny ulcers but said they would have healed by now and probably not causing my daily stomach pain.  I have also noticed my pain feels worse around two hours after eating.... Thank you for replying anyhow
