Hi, Anyone have any ideas what can cause constant upper left abdominal pain,its usually in my stomach area or at my breast bone like a burning feeling,I am also burping a lot more.
Been to the Docs and given merbervine and told to also take co coadmol for the pain which I have been doing,its not getting any better.
I was told I had IBS 10 yrs ago but apart form this bothering me occasionally over the years(usually after going out for a big meal etc)I have it under control.
This pain is different becasue its there all the time and isnt low down and crampy or relieved by a BM like my typical IBS symptoms.
I am so worried,I have been online and can narrow my symptoms down to perhaps chronic gastrisis or Stomach cancer nothing else seems to fit.
i AM now starting to go off food and have been constipated too(though I know co codamol can do this and with the pain and my anxitety I dont feel like eating) I can look at it that way but also I am just getting more scared that its just another symptom I now have for Stomach cancer.
I cry at least twice a day and am really scared.
I am having bloods taken tmrw and a ulrasound.
I have been back to the docs and asked for an endscope as I am so worried-he agreed so now again part of me thinks he must think its something serious too.
Please can anyone give me any reasurrance or stories.I just cannot cope with the not knowing and the constant ache reminds me everyday so I cant even try to forget or enjoy my family.
