I have some serious issues with my stomach/gastrointestinal region. It started with no pain just excessive gas about 4 weeks ago. Then I upped my caffeine intake -going from 1 espresso and 1 caffeine pill per day to 2 espresso drinks and 1 or 1.5 caffeine pills each day. At night I would often take Advil PM before bed.
About a week ago the gas started to subside and pain set in. At first it was a dull stomach ache feeling when I would eat or drink water. Shortly after the worst burning, fire like sensation in my gut occured - all directly below my ribcage.
The last few days I started getting cramps along with the stomach ache feeling. The cramps seem centrlized to the region directly below my eft ribcage area and also the back opposite area of the ribcage. Breaking wind seems to help the cramp feeling. My stool seems like brown mud - not liquid and not solid. Just all out at once. I usullay go once per day inthe morning or every other day.
Tests to date:
-Blood panel and urine - all came back normal
-Bloodpressure is higer than normal
-Ultrasound of stomach - early report said nothing; no inflamtion or issues just a lot of gas found
-stomach blood panel - waiting results
Any idea what is going on with me? I've seen two docs and both suggest something different. Appreciate any and all feedback.
