Thank you all for your advice re the above. This pain started with a bowl of homemade vegetable soup made in my wonderful soup maker. This had more leeks than usual and gave my OH indigestion as well. Since then it has lingered getting worse as the day progresses. In the morning I have healthy yoghurt and porridge and for lunch soup or sardines on toast or cheese , dinner is pasta, chicken or fish. Not many carbs there and hardly any sugar as I want to stop taking Metformin. I think it's the cocktail of pills we all take and my 76 year old stomach saying enough. Today I have cut out my one piece of wholemeal bread at lunchtime and tomorrow I might not take the Metformin. As I have a bone density scan due after Christmas I need to eat calcium rich food as it wasn't good before steroids. I don't think the ppi or calcichews help either. Never mind the plus side is one stone in weight already lost and the skinny jeans now fit after two years! ps I never did like leeks.
