I was diagnosed with gastritis a couple of months ago, I had symptoms of left upper abdominal pain (like a tight sqeezing sensation where my actual stomach is) I also was suffering with very bad nausea which has calmed down this past week or so. I had burning in the stomach, hunger pains and generally just feeling weak and unwell. This morning I woke up to very bad cramps in the stomach, and felt like I needed a number two. I have been constipated since Monday though I think that is due to the ranitidine I've been taking to calm acid reflux down while I wait for an ultra sound. I went to the toilet and had a number two which was like small dark little black balls, which didn't relive my pain. I wiped and looked and there was blood on the tissue which resulted in to me panicking thinking I was bleeding from the bottom but turns out it is my period. This period is very strange to my others (awful lower abdomen plain, plus my gastritis stomach pain) pooping more. (The constipation is gone) feeling so nauseas and I was cooking at night and got really hot and dizzy I had to sit down and breathe heavily my head felt very pressured and hearing went weird. I don't know if this is down to me losing a lot of blood as it is a very heavy period! I've read online that gastritis and the time of the month don't go to well together. I just please need advice on how to soothe these feelings and feel better so that I can sleep! It's 5am I woke up from my sleep at 3:30am haven't been able to get back to sleep. I'm in a lot of pain, I live on my own I'm a 20 year old female.. I can't take this pain! VERY VERY bad backache to.
Is this defiantly my period? I'm not bleeding dangerously am I? Nothing to worry about? I worry and stress about being poorly, no idea why. I suffer with anxiety which I don't take meds for as I can usually control it (unless I turn VERY poorly then all I do is over think, cry and feel sorry for myself) which I hate doing!
Thank you for taking your time to read and reply to me.
