I've been getting these symptoms on and off for about 15 years. It's basically very painful trapped wind where the pain is around my middle ribs, around my side and through my back. The pain is a out a 7/10 and is constant until i stand up. The pain starts a few hours after eating and lasts for an hour or two before it subsides! Standing up relieves the pain. I can also help to relieve the pain by taking rennies and burping a lot. I basically have to wind myself. (I really don't know where all that wind comes from!!). The burping relieves the pain for a few minutes before it comes back. I find myself walking around the house for a few hours at 3 am!!
I used to get it if I was drinking alcohol for 3-4 days in a row. These days I only have to of had a few drinks 1 night. Sometimes I get it without drinking at all.
On numerous occassions my GP has given my tablets that the stop the stomach creating acid but I took the tablets for a month without drinking alcohol but the first day of drinking I got the pains back again. I don't drink much these days so I don't get the pains as often as I used to but I know that if I do have a few beers I am bound to get the pains the next day.
I have a twin sister who has the same symptoms but she doesn't drink and gets it from too much sugar or coffee.
I would really like to get to the bottom of it if as it's been going on too long now.
