Hi, I've had severe stomach pain which seems to happen about once a month,sometimes twice. It is upper abdominal, I have a high pain threshold, this pain reduces me to tears every time I get it. There's is no trigger but the symptoms start the same. Around 5pm I will get a stomach pain that starts off dull similar to if you were really hungry, progressing each hour until you 10pm it's at it peak I can barely move no position can be made comfortable no tablet for acid or pain relief (tramadol) touches it. It keeps me up all night and symptoms dissappear around 7 am as if it never happened. I've had this for 5 years, doctors diagnosed me with IBS although no symptoms are similar and there is certainly no relief in emptying my bowels. I've had blood tests for liver, all stomach functions, allergys and infections all negative. Every time I get pain I go to a&e as pain is so severe I feel as if something inside me has ruptured, shot I feel light headed due to pain. Despite all this doctors at a&e send me home with co-codaml and tell me to go see my doctor. I have been about 20 times in last year to be giving more anti acids which don't work. Can anybody help who has had similar symptoms it is affecting my quality of life as I feel something is seriously wrong in my abdomen and I'm being passed off as one doctor told me 'your in your 20s your not old enough for serious health problems, you look well and people that are ill don't look well the look ill' yeah doctor you should see me at 3 am rolling around my floor in pain!
