Hi. Been struggling the last 6-8 weeks with various symptoms that all seem to stem from abdominal pain.
I had a very acidic stomach and the GP suggested it might be a touch of mild gastritis. He suggested probiotics and I did feel a bit better after a week.
However, I still have varying different issues in my stomach as follows:
* A mild burning pain in the lower stomach ( the pit)
* Pain under both rib cages that feels stitch like ( worse after eating)
Neither of these cause me too much discomfort but are both noticeable and frustrating as they aren't going away.
Other linked symptoms seem to be a constant dry mouth and a 'creeping sensation under the skin (everywhere) that makes me want to scratch.
Would gastritis, assuming it is that, cause pain in such different parts of the abdomen? Does it get better? My GP doesn't seem overly concerned.
Also, I have a full appetite, whereas most people with gastritis report a loss is appetite. Strange set of symptoms and an abdominal ultrasound showed nothing.
Frustrating isn't the word. Please share any thoughts you may have.
