Tummy ache

i am currently sat up in bed at 1am with tummy ache and a hot water bottle, it woke me the night before at 3am and ive had an ache all day. Where your natural crease is in your tummy just above your belly button thats where the pain is following down the shape of my ribs to my sides/ hips, its like a gnawing / cramping pain i also have pain in my back and tonight i have loud grumbling noises and a bit of wind and a weird feeling in my throat like an irritation, i have just burped and had a vile tasting fliud come up. My tummy is bloated and very uncomfortable especially near my ribs feels like i want to burst. I have ibs and reflux and take omeprazole once aday. My monthly cycle is also due which isnt helping. Any advice please.

  • I'm omeprazole twice a day as this started happening to me at night, so now I take one in the morning and one 12 hours later, this works for me, or if you didn't want to take extra pills you could try raising the head part of your bed up......only read this works never tried it tho as have the thought it will fall off the bricks in the night n squish my cat

    Hope you find some relief

  • Hi, do you get all the tummy pain too.

  • I get the upper stomach pain just under the ribs. I have a hiatus hernia as well n when the bloating that high up I get the pain, makes it hard to breathe

  • Thanks, i have made a doctors appointment, but i fear they will say its a combo ibs, reflux and my monthly cycle, not sure weather to cancel it. I also suffer with anxiety and get fed up with going to doctors.

  • Hi lolly, honestly with what you're describing I would go back to your doctor and insist they send you to a gastroenterologist because whilst we can all relate to your pain we're not doctors and I personally feel it would be wrong to advise you, incase its wrong. That being said have you been tested for celiac's disease? My sister is a celiac and has the burping and vile taste you have described and the pain. Maybe a trip to the doctor or A&E if it happens like this again at night. Good luck Lolly I'm sorry I personally couldn't help further than this. 😃
