Hi everyone, I've been having very painful abdominal pains since just before Christmas, in the past I had been diagnosed with very mild diverticulitis so when these pains started I was put on 2 lots of antibiotics which helped a bit but didn't clear it up. I have hardly been eating anything as had been doing what told if diverticulitis and having liquids and then just mashed potato etc. When I went back to Doctors on Thursday she thought it could be gallbladder although symptoms weren't really like they say for that, I was sent for ultrasound yesterday and although they found some stones it didn't show any blockages or inflammation. So Doctor then said thinks it is my stomach and sent me home with omeprazole to try for a few days to see if that helps. I have felt better today although still have pain all across stomach under ribs, its sort of like its being squeezed, sometimes belching relieves it a bit. I will be going back to Doctor again this week as need to get to bottom of it now. Do you think it sounds like it could be stomach ulcers, its really sore if I press it and don't like having trousers tight around waist as aggravates it. Found this site and seems like some helpful comments and people on here so hope you can advise me a bit. Thanks
