Just wanted to post my experience on here and see if anyone can give me any advice....
About a month ago I woke up in the night with stomach ache which kept me awake for a while, didn't think too much of it, felt uncomfortable the next day but thought it would just be a dodgy stomach and go off, however woke up for the next 2 nights boiling hot and couldn't get back to sleep. Hard to explain the pain not excruiating more uncomfortable and crampy.
Went to the dr's who basically said I was anxious (i dont like the drs) and probably in my head. Examined me to say my stomach was churning but said could be IBS, could be allergic to something, could be start of an infection but he wasn't worried and basically just said get on with it. Finally had a better night sleep on the 5th night and although it took a while to feel completely normal by about wednesday the next week I felt ok. Felt fine for the next 2 weeks, then on Sunday night (exactly 4 weeks after the first episode) I was woken in the night again and over the last few days have had the same symtoms, stomach pains, churning and not sleeping!!! Slept a bit better last night so hoping it's not staying as long apart from waking once feeling bubbling in stomach.
It has just worried me how it has come back, also how it wakes me in the night makes me not think its IBS as heard it shouldn't wake you up... other symptoms i've had are sometimes feeling constiapted like I want to go to the toilet or pass wind but cant, lower back pain, some diorehha but not really. This time round my bowl movements seem pretty much normal and today I have more of a burning kind of feel in my stomach rather than lower!
just so confused by all this and worrying I may have an ulcer or an infection? but feel that dr's don't really want to know!! If anyone could give me any advice on what they think of my symptoms I'd really appreciate it, thanks! x
