I am feeling really frustrated right now and am wondering if anyone might have advice. I have been to my GP enough times to where it feels like i'm annoying them. Around a year ago I started noticing that my stomach would bloat up at certain times. I have tried different diets but they haven't worked so far. Six month ago I went to doc because along with being bloated I was struggling with diarrhea and constipation. They ran blood test to see if I was coeliac and several other blood tests and they came back normal. My pituitary gland was slightly abnormal but other than that blood test were Ok. I then returned to Doc as my stomach is still bloated and feeling nauseous at times. I took a breath test for H. Pylori as my Doctor thought I had gastritis but it came back negative. There is a burning in my upper central abdomen as well
My other symptoms are that when I eat my upper abdomen makes loud gurgling sounds, and after eating a few bites of food I feel really full. I am not losing weight. I am now bloated most the time, sometimes upon awakening, sometime not. I look around 6 months pregnant and can only wear very loose tops. The constant symptoms are feeling of fullness and bloatedness. The occasional as previously stated are: nausea, fatigue, constipation (comes and goes), gurgling sounds, feeling of fist in upper center abdomen pushing out
I am 31 years old and my mom had gallstones when she was sixteen. As well as several other relatives have had gallstones. I am having an ultrasound on Feb 13th for gallstones but should I also be checked for ovarian cancer?
All of this is obviously driving me crazy, so any help would be wonderful
Also I am going to start the FODMAP diet soon to see how this helps. I am off dairy now because it cause gas to smell like sulfur and really upsets stomach.
If all of these symptoms sound very similar to someone else and you have suggestions, please let me know, and thanks everybody.
