Is there something wrong with my stomach?
Hey, everyone. I hope you’re all okay and staying safe and well.
I have a bit of a strange question. I have several chronic health conditions, including Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, Dysautonomia, Ehler’s Danlos Syndrome, IBS, Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease, Diabetes, Interstitial Cystitis, Migraines, Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease and some mental health difficulties. So there’s a lot of stuff going on.
Anyway, I regularly get stomach aches, or just an iffy stomach in general. I’ll sometimes go 2-5 days with a very minimal amount of food because I’m just not hungry and I feel sick. I’ve had lots of tests and scans and beyond having a Hiatal Hernia and some inflamed blood vessels in my stomach lining, they can’t find a reason behind this. But I’ve recently discovered that when I feel like this and/or I’m bloated… I can get it all to go away by drinking something fizzy. Doesn’t matter what it is, but as long as it’s fizzy… It almost instantly makes it better.
Does anyone have any idea why this is? I do struggle to burp a lot - I always have. When I burp, they are tiny and don’t make much difference, even after I’ve drunk the fizzy stuff. I’m completely open to suggestions. I take all kinds of medication for my IBS and GERD. Antacids, Buscopan, Mebeverine, Metaclopramide (an anti-sickness). But they have a minimal effect when I have these stomach aches, bloating, nausea and loss of appetite.
Thank you all in advance! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Stay safe!
