So short history: in April I started having some abdominal pain, nausea and burning in my stomach between navel and breastbone after taking Naproxen for 2 weeks. I don’t know if that’s what caused it, some people say it couldn’t have caused any damage in such a short period of time, so maybe it was a combination of unhealthy food and Naproxen. Went to the doctors and did blood test and stool test and nothing came up. I was never diagnosed and I was prescribed Gaviscon which did nothing. I tried Lansoprazole myself and saw no progress. After a few weeks pain and nausea went away but the burning stayed with me. I went back to my doctor and she gave me Omeprazole. The burning started to fade away slowly and I was eventually left with only a cough and some heartburn here and there. I stopped taking omeprazole slowly and the cough eventually disappeared as well. At this point I was able to eat and drink whatever I wanted.
For the past few weeks my life has been on hold more or less as I have a knee injury so I’ve been stuck in my house, watching tv and eating lots of crisps and other unhealthy stuff. One night I started getting really bad pain in my lower back which spread to my lower abdomen. The pain kind of moves around but most of it is in my right hip bone. I’ve been feeling sick as well and today the heartburn has come back as well.
My stool is also very dark in colour (really dark brown) and stinky so I don’t know if it’s blood or not. I’m really worried I might die tbh. I have an appointment on the 11th so let’s see if I make it until then.
I’m going out with a friend tomorrow so I might have some alcohol. I’m not a big drinker and alcohol never worsened my symptoms in the past so I hope I won’t die from it.
Anyone have an idea what it could be? Perhaps gastritis or GERD and some gallbladder issues?
