Okay let me start out by saying this has been going on for well over a year now. Told my doc about it and she didn’t take it very seriously.
I have very weird, very random stomach pains that occur after eating, but only sometimes. Maybe a few times a month. These pains are sharp, stabbing, I feel them all in my stomach, they even spread to the left side of my back and my left breast (really bizarre I know). I’d say on a scale of 1-10 they are about 7 or 8 usually. The only thing that makes them go away is laying down on my left side for a bit. When this happens at a restaurant I have to go out to the car and lay down for a while.
The weirdest part is that I can’t pinpoint a cause. I can eat a certain meal one week and have no trouble. I eat the exact same thing the next week and it causes me pain. Almost every bit food I eat on a regular basis has caused me pain at least once.
These pains are never accompanied by vomiting, although about once a month (only late at night) I will start having a stomachache right before bed and about an hour later vomit (it’s usually just bile or even nothing if I haven’t eaten/drank in a while). When this happens I never have a fever nor do I feel bad.
So yeah, I don’t know if this is IBS or what but I’m really sick of it because I end up not being able to enjoy outings with friends and family sometimes because of it.
