It started 7 weeks ago after returning from a trip to New Zealand to visit my family. All of a sudden I felt pain all through my abdomen on evening and then very bloated and it got worst from there. It got to the point where I couldn't eat any food at all without my stomach feeling like it was about to explode, so painful! I'm a 37 year old female, 5ft 4, and now under 100lb. I've lost about 18lb in 7 weeks. I have never been sick like this before. I don't drink, I don't smoke, and I exercise at least 3 days a week. The doctor said its most likely inflammation pr ulcer and gave me a PPI. My blood tests came back normal and I tested negative for H.Pylori. After a while the acid reduced and I was able to eat small snack sized soft foods throughout the day without the exploding feeling. Last night I tried to add ground chicken to plain rice and my stomach flared up again.. nightmare! I hope it settles back down soon. All I can safely eat is yogurt, eggs, apple sauce, and thats about it. I finally have an ultrasound booked for Thursday, I'm hoping it can eliminate a few things, or figure out the problem. I don't find mornings the worst, which it seems is more common for ulcers/inflammation, so I wonder if that's even what I have. Anyone have any ideas on what I should be doing? this is unbearable!! Will it ever go away?
