Persistent stomach ache

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hello,

i have written many times before here, i have been suffering with abdominal pain for 7 months now, it starting from the upper left side to the right side. it gets worse when i lie down to sleep. my ribs hurt and abdomen still makes this odd gurgling sounds

i have been on omeprazole for months now and nothing has changed

the pain feels like there is an open wound in my stomach and sometimes pinching pain too

i go to sleep and wake up with my abdominal muscles so sore.

does anyone have any idea what this could be, because the doctors are not helpful at all.

    Has gastritis been mentioned and h pylori? Ask for an endoscopy to see if you have these conditions. Do you have change of bowel habit? Does food or stress trigger symptoms?

    Hi ra34360

    I think you should see your doctor and ask to be referred for an abdominal scan as a second opinion. All patients in UK (if your in UK) are entitled to a second opinion under 'The Patients Charter'.....

    Hello. Sorry you're having such a hard time. Omeprazole can cause horrendous side effects. You should speak to your doctor about your symptoms and concerns. Best wishes...

    you you will have to go in and have your doctor order scope to go down into your stomach and look around that's the only way you're going to know what's exactly wrong until you get the testing done you're going to worry so get it done
