My daughter is almost 9 months old.. id say when she was about 2-3 months old i would hold her arms and she would walk up my belly/chest.. i always noticed when she stepped on my upper left ab it was tender, i thought it was muscle related from giving birth. not too much later i noticed i would feel naseaus around 3-5 pm everyday. Wasnt sure way. It seemed to go away for a while. I also was suffering endless fatigue i thought it was because i was breastfeeding and not eating great. Then about a month and a half ago, my husband was making dinner & all of the sudden i said babe i feel naseaus, my stomach felt warm & i had to run to the restroom to go to the bathroom (no vomiting). I thought running to the restroom was normal because ive always had IBS issues. But the naseaus wasnt normal. Not much later, i notied in the same spot where my daughter used to step and it would be tender, i was starting to have pain there that felt like an ache but also like someone just punched me in the stomach. Around the same i had noticed I was experiencing a little bit of acid reflux, which i thought was odd because i hadnt had that since i was pregnant (which was awful when i was pregnant), i also noticed i had started belching a lot more than normal, & bloating up often. Then I started realizing i had the same pain that wad tender to the touch on the right side behind my upper ab also, the two spots were creating uncomfortable pains, that also went through to my back, pains werent horrible but uncomfortable and concerning. So i scheduled an appointment with the local clinic, the doctor was great.. she said i tested negative for h. Pyori. She diagnosed me with gerd & prescribed me 20 mg omeprazole and said if it doesn't get better comd back. Well 2 weeks later the tender spots were still there but most unprovoked pain had stopped. But my husband and i were concerned so we went to the er.. they ran all the basic tests.. urinalysis, complete blood count, platelet count, lipase, etc plus abdoninal ultrasound, checked gallbladder. Saif everything came back good, and i probably had gastritis. & To follow up with endoscopy.. well my husband had been workig crazy hours and i was relived tests were good so i didnt jump on the follow up immediatly. Doctor at er said continue taking PPIs for at least 6 weeks. Well i have the endoscopy now scheduled for this coming Saturday. But i am emcompassed with worry, anxiety, stress. Its nearing 6 weeks of ppi use and no improvement. Ive actually been feeling more pains recently that range from sharp to dull to warm to stinging, the tender spots feel more tender. I have these stinging pains that shoot up my chest on the left and right side that line up perfectly with the tender spots. I get sharp pains in my rib cage just above. Shar pains in back. Sometimes warm dull ache in back. When i went to my pre op for the endoscopy, she said since all my tests were good, she wasnt concerned about cancer.. just stomach ulcers. But i feel like if it were stomach ulcers they would have strted to improve by now. Plus i havent really had much in the way of pain that i would refer to as burning.. but im not sure what people mean when they say burning pain, if someone could explain i would appreciate it. Also i would like to add that every since the first time i told my husband i felt naseaus and ran to the restroom, i have totally changed my diet, started eating before coffee, eating more vegetables, nothing spicy, nothing fatty, fried, no dairy, more fruits, less meat. I have completely altered my diet & it is very healthy now. My fatigue has went away since, and so have my headches.. but my stomach issue has not. It doesn't seem like eating or not makes muh a difference. But my appetite is VERY healthy, i eat lots of smalls meals and snacks thtoughout the day and become hungry again very quickly. Also my bowels are very regular. But my stomch issue is not relieving. I am scared its morr serious than ulcers. I was just wondering if anyone with endoscopy diagnised ulcers could relate to my situation. I need some comfort for my head. I have a beautiful daughter and beautiful family and the fear of them losing me is terrifying. If anyone could relate, i would appreciate it greatly.
