I have been having stomach problems for years. My stomach feels uncomfortable and bloated. If I am trying to get to sleep I have to keep changing my position, when I change positions the feeling briefly goes away and I try to quickly fall asleep before it comes back. The best way I can describe the feeling is that my stomach feels like it needs to rumble but it won't. When my stomach is rumbling I feel better, I find myself so relieved to feel rumbling. I've tried eating different things, and different foods don't seem to correlate with the uncomfortable feeling. I've also tried lying on my left side and this had been the most successful treatment I have found, occasionally making my stomach rumble and taking the uncomfortable feeling away. I have seen a gastro-intestinal specialist for 2 years. I have had 3 colonoscopies and an MRI, nothing was found. He suggested gluten free diet, I tried this and found no change. He now wants to do another colonoscopy and I don't want to do another, the preparations are terrible and they haven't solved anything during the previous 3. I have tried all sorts of medications including antacids, anti gas medicine, and anti-inflammatories. I used to smoke cannabis and it helped, possibly because I was too high to notice the pain lol. I now get drug tested for work so this isn't an option. I am so sick of this feeling. Sometimes I can't play with my daughter because my stomach hurts. Sometimes I am up most of the night tossing and turning or constantly twitching my foot to avoid the pain. I hope someone has some advice.
