Hey there! So I've been having weird stomach feelings for about 2-3 months. I'm gonna try and explain them as best as I can:
- stomach feeling empty and gnawing even after right I eat, it's like i've eaten nothing. I get this feeling when I'm very hungry too. just more intense.
Then, there's the total opossite of it:
-stomach feeling so full with normal portions, as if I ate rocks. It feels so bloated and then nausea too.
Those 2 feelings are the main ones and they're completely opposite. I go to the toilet everyday, no blood in my stool, stool is normal coloured and sometimes more light coloured but I guess it's cause I eat vegetables and stuff. Sometimes I will get nausea but I get this is my anxiety (I'm an anxious person). I don't know if I have acid reflux but sometimes I feel my chest heavy, but I have asthma too.
I have been to a gastroentologist 3 times. She examined me and listened to my belly. From what I told her she didn't feel the need to order an endoscopy, she thinks it's just anxiety. She said I might have anxiety induced gastritis (no h. pylori). She gave me anti acids at first (omeprazole) that did nothing so she said if they did nothing, there's nothing to fix there. Those bouts of the stomach mess come and go. However, they've been persistent for 2 weeks now and I'm really scared this is an ulcers.
I've had ultrasound of my belly back in September, nothing wrong. Had blood tests about pancreas and kidneys, nothing wrong either. Please give me some insight and thank you for any answers!
