So I've had cramps in my middle stomach, under my ribs for about a month (bearable pain) I've had an upper agai which indicated Gastrisis, biopsys have been done and I'm currently waiting on the results. I'm on 80mg omeprazole a day, and gaviscon. Since the upper GI (2 weeks ago) all my symptoms seem to have vanished and my eating has got back to almost normal. Until tonight... I had a McDonald's burger (I know I shouldn't have) and around 2 hours later went to bed (also a bad move). About 3/4 hours later I woke up with the worst pain I have ever been in in my life, I was practically screaming, had burning stomach pain, gnawing pain, to the point I was sick and almost blacked out. I took some gaviscon as it felt kind of like horrendous heartburn (which if anything made it worse). Because of the amount of pain I was in my boyfriend rang an ambulance. They came within 5 minutes, checked my heart and pretty much everything else. I was sick (which was majority burger) and since I've been sick it's eased off. The ambulance have advised me to see my doctor in the morning as if I went to hospital they wouldn't be able to do anything because it's so early in the morning the departments will be shut for scans etc.
At the moment I'm OK, slight heartburn but nothing to worry about, and it's been about 2 hours since I woke up.
I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced this, with the pain so severe? I'm praying it's an infection which antibiotics will clear because I can't live like this, I've never suffered any stomach trouble up until a month ago so why has this just started?
