Hi my name is Kayla and I’m desparate for some answers.
I have an empty hollow feeling in the upper middle section of my abdomen, exactly in the middle right below my chest between my ribs.
I’ve had this for 13 years off and on since I was 17. These past couple years have been really bad. It’s not going away and if it does it comes right back. I cannot eat anything but white bread to keep it at bay.
I also cannot flex the area, so no exercising.
I learned about the vagus nerve involving the digestive system last night and decided to try some vagus nerve exercises to try to heal it. It wasn’t feeling bad last night last night so I tried deep breathing exercises and it’s SO irritated this morning just from expanding the area with deep breathing.
It hurts when I physically move the area and it hurts when I eat anything wrong, especially fruits and vegetables.
I cannot eat healthy and cannot exercise and now am losing hair because I am not getting nutrients. My quality of life is severely diminished & cannot keep a job.
I’ve seen a specialist. She put me on omemprazole and I took it for a month and no changes. I’ve had an endoscopy done and just showed mild irritation but normal they said. H pylori test negative. Had my gallbladder removed last year.
- acid taste in my mouth and get reflux once in awhile.
-empty hollow pain in stomach
-burp a lot
-food comes up with burps a lot
- flexing or expanding the area or pushing on the area agitates it for weeks!
It just feels miserable.
I cannot function like a normal person. Any help would greatly be appreciated. I can’t live like this anymore and it’s effecting my relationships too.
