for the past two weeks I've had these symptoms and I've been to the doctors and been diagnosed with two different infections - gastritis and then IBS. I don't know if I was miss diagnosed or not as two different doctors examined me. This was in the space of two weeks. I only had my stomach looked at too. No thorough tests.
My symptoms are:
Feeling sick constantly - all throughout the day and gets worse when I eat or smoke. (I have not vomited)
Sometimes a burning sensation in my abdominal (mainly at night)
Hunger pains regularly
Loss of appetite
Bloating and stomach fullness after anything I eat
Stomach pain sometimes, usually all over the place. It changes places, sometimes it's my left upper abdominal, then it's the middle of my stomach then my lower abdominal. It changes all the time.. it's a very hard symptom to describe. (Dull and sharp pains)
Upset stomach sometimes
Shortness of breath!
Not being able to sleep at night because nausea wakes me up.
I was prescribed omeprazole 20mg two weeks ago when they diagnosed me with gastritis I took for 7 days (stopped today) because they didn't really do much but take the nausea away a little bit - my stomach got worse on them. Today I went doctors and they completely ruled out the gastritis and said he thinks it's IBS. Prescribed me peppermint oil tablets but I can't swallow them so I'm taking buscopan IBS relief instead. I've took one tonight that is all - no relief but I've only had one.
I would really appreciate anybody's help. Thank you so much!
