Hi everyone. This is my first post / forum on Patient so thank you for taking the time to read. I am a 24 year old male from the North East of England. Two weeks ago (Thursday 20th April 2017) whilst at work I got a sudeen painful stomach, it felt like kind of a trapped wind, awful pain. I managed to wait until after work to go and get some windeze and various other tablets. On the Friday night the pain was still quite bad, sharp and shooting, stabbing like. I thought maybe a bought of IBS so went and bought some Buscopan. They didn't do anything. Saturday I went to A&E and they examined me, four files of blood. Nothing. Sent me home to see how I go. Monday and Tuesday I got sent home from work and Tuesday afternoon I went straight from work to A&E, again. Nothing again and sent home. Went to see my GP and they gave me some Mebeverine? Something for IBS and cramps. Didn't help. My family and I paid privately at the Nuffield for a full abdominal scan and that was all clear, we were worried about Gallstones / Gallbladder. Nothing apparently. I've been back to my GP, sent in two stool samples and they're testing for Helicobacter Pylori? I put those stool samples in Tuesday 2nd May 2017 after the bank holiday, today is Thursday 4th May, still not heard. I went for a check up with a surgeon from an earlier problem and discussed this he has arranged now for a Gastroscopy and Colonscopy and another Ultrasound in 19-20 days. The pain does seem to get worse when I eat? But I've also been waking up 2-3am in pain so not just on a full stomach. I want some answers and results ASAP. I am worried, the form said URGENT. Could this be stomach ulcers? Or something simple? Would it be a course of antibiotics and antacids to clear it up? How quickly would I feel better? The pain in my stomach area and the area around my stomach is quite sensitive to touch! Sorry this is so long wanted to give as much detail as possible and anyone elses thoughts, opinions, experiences would be appreciated.
