Pit of Stomach Pain

Posted , 7 users are following.

I think I have seen this on the board before, but does anyone have pain a few inches below the sternum? It spreads to the right and left under my ribs. Sometimes it goes into my back and shoulders. I do have acid reflux and have been watching diet and taking medicine. I also have GAD. My counselor thinks the symptoms are all anxiety related.

    There is more serotonin in the gut than in the brain it is made by immune cells,neurons and EC cells bacteria also plays a roll in this. so think of 90% of the serotonin being in your gut and you can see the effect it would have on all aspects of the digestive system. This might be part of the problem you are having. Feel better soon.
