Extreme abdominal discomfort...

Posted , 5 users are following.

Since over a week now I have extreme abominable discomfort. I don’t have diarrhea nor do I have to vomit bit I feel full and bloated. I can’t lay down because it gives me extreme heartburn and I my stomach is rock hard. It gives me chest pains and makes me dizzy. I am seriously very afraid this could be something serious because nothing I try helps, no milk, no medication such as pepto bismol. Nothing. When I drink something, no matter what it just feels like someone is pressing into my abdomen. I’m gonna go to a doctor tomorrow because I’m seriously worried it might be cancer or something like this.

    Don't think like that!! Your symptoms are very common. Almost everyone on this forum has your symptoms and worse. I am sure it's not cancer. It's probably a common stomach condition that can be easily treated. What are your eating habits like? Do you eat on time or do you skip meals? Is it possible you have a build up of gas in your stomach? Are you burping a lot? Or it could be acid reflux. There are acid reducing tablets that you can take. Get tested for H Pylori (stomach bacteria). That can be treated with anti biotics.

    Dear Sonia,

    I am sure you are having too much undigested food in your stomach and with time you will be fine again. If you need some help i am sure you can take enough water and juice.
