So about a month ago I had a flare up (which I've never had previously) of what my doctor thinks could be acid reflux or gastrisis and maybe even IBS.
I go for a gastroscopy done in a few weeks hopefully but I'm terrified! The pain has eased considerably. It's still present after eating then eases off again, however I've noticed that where he belly button lies, on either side I have a dull ache, nothing drastic - more annoying that anything, slightly feels muscular.
I've had an ultrasound which showed no problems so I'm not worried about my organs.
I take omeprazole and gaviscon.
I've never suffered with any type of stomach trouble before so I'm a bit confused as to why it's just happened, I did catch a bug abroad a few years ago so maybe it's something to do with that?
Are these pains normal?
What can I expect when I go for an endoscope?
Will this pain ever go away completely?
How long should it last?
Sorry for overloading with questions but im very nervous. Medically I've never had anything wrong, I'm only 27 and terrified and what lies ahead.
