Random stomach discomfort,

Posted , 4 users are following.

I'll try and include everything relevant but please ask for more info if needed.

I have been experiencing stomach discomfort on and off for around a week (indigestion, bloating, occasional mild cramps, wind). No nausea or vomiting, or unusual bowel movements. It seems more prominent when i am hungry or if i activily think about it (i.e if i focus on something else, it eases off) though it has been gradually getting better throughout the week.

i am not on any medication, no medical conditions (that I'm aware of atleast), i don't drink or smoke. I am not aware of any allergies or intolerances.

I am hoping to hear from anyone else in a similar situation, or with knowledge of this type of thing. I will definitely seek medical advice should anything get worse.

    where in your abdomen is the pain located?

      wasn't localised as such, it came and went in different places, though originally began just below the ribcage.

      if it doesn't go away in 2 weeks maybe go see a doctor but it sounds like either gastritis or ibs to me. I'm not a doctor though so I cant say for sure but i was just diagnosed with gastritis and my pains are under the rib cage.

    Could be gastritis or IBS; see your doctor to confirm if the pain comes back.
