Hello, back in Feburary I went to the doctors after suffering abdominal pain (pain just above the belly button, right in the center) for over a week. The doctor said I have unexplained abdominal pain, because he used a stethoscope on my belly and said he heard nothing wrong with my entire abdomen (I do think he was trying to shoo me out to be honest). I was prescribed with a weeks worth of Buscopan and sent home.
I'll admit, the Buscopan did work that time. But when I stopped taking it because I ran out, the center of my abdomen started hurting again about a week later, but eventually it stopped hurting at all.
Well, until 2 weeks ago when I suddenly started getting the pain in the same area again, and also now in the left side of my abdomen just below the ribcage. I started getting new symptons too. I felt extremely bloated after eating a meal, so bloated that I can barely eat a regular sized meal (before I would always go back for seconds after I finished eating), I started feeling a lot more fatigue, I went from having 1 1hour nap a week to 2 1 and a half naps a day. I've also been getting bad headaches (not migraine bad though), and I've just been feeling generally unwell ever since my abdomen started hurting again recently.
I've tried both Deflatine and Buscopan again recently. The Deflatine just makes me feel gassy but does nothing about the pain, and the Buscopan has stopped working (I've been taking both for a week, and strong paracetamol on top of that).
My sister who is a nurse in training doesn't think it's IBS since she said IBS shouldn't be in your upper abdomen, only your lower. I feel like I should go to the doctor but I feel like he'll just shoo me out again with more Buscopan or something. What should I do? Does anyone know what it could be from my symptons?
