Fibromyalgia pain

Hi I was just wondering if anybody else has problems with there upper abdomen I have suffered for years the pain is so bad I can't walk, I have been to the doctors they have no idea why it's like this I have been to hospital and I have had a camera down and they don't understand why I am suffering so bad so if anybody else has this have they been told it fibro related. Thanks

Hi Carah

I think have the same and it was particularly bad over Christmas-New Year. My upper stomach blows right out and I can't get comfortable in bed or sitting.

It also means the bottom of my bra feels like my stomach is being strung tight across which is even more uncomfortable.

I put it down to IBS which I know does affect a lot of fibromites.

Sorry I can't be more help.

I have been in hospital for a week with this pain but they could not help, that was a few years ago now well let's hope 1 day we will find out what it's all about. Thanks again

Hi Carah

What sort of pain is it? I'm guessing the hospital ruled out ulcers and hiatus hernia etc.

I wonder if it could be indegestion?Please don't be offended. Indegestion can be extremely painful.

I get very bloated after I've eaten.

Have you tried cutting out various foods from your diet to see if that works?

I'm sorry I can't think of anything else.

I hope you get some relief from the pain soon.

Wishing you much peace
