Since the start of this year I have been struggling with my upper abdomen that I can only assume was brought on my stress and anxiety as I have recently recovered from Post-Natal Depression & Anxiety. I am not able to enjoy this newly found mental health as my stomach feels so crap 24/7 and my drs literally could not care less.
I cannot move my upper abdomen at all, my abdomen is rigid almost to my belly button and then the rest of my stomach sticks out as it normally does...I have had 2 kids, I dont have a 6 pack. This can get so bad if i am doing physical activity that i cant breathe easily. Sometimes my breathing is affected by my throat, I am worried acid could be be getting into my airways.
I am so uncomfortable from the minute I wake up with discomfort...its a very subtle burning in my throat and stomach but no heart burn and just extreme tightness in my upper abdomen it's like someone is trying to push all my organs up into my ribs and it never relaxes.
This feels like this all day unless I am asleep, I get no relief and its starting to effect my mental health. I tried PPIs and they have made it worse! I try gaviscon it makes it worse and makes me feel sick. I am eating and pooping fine which makes it even more frustrating because I cant enjoy any of my food because abdomen aches constantly.
I am waiting on a referral to a stomach guy but if anyone out there has any experience of this symptom and any remedies I can try to get some relief I would be eternally grateful!!
