I have alternating ibs and take 40mg omeprazole a day for gerd. Every few weeks heartburn and indigestion get excruciating to the point im doubled up in agony and nothing gets rid of it. Ive had a cold this past week which always agrivates my ibs and on friday i had a stabbing pain over my left breast that went into my armpit and shoulder it only lasted about 5 minutes. Then since yesterday I've had a stabhing pain under my breastbone which goes through to my back between my shoulder blades. I've taken my omeprazole but it hasn't done anything, I've also tried a snack which also did nothing and it's the same with gaviscon and rennies. It's making me a bit nauseous but always coinsides with needing a bowel movement which is mucosy but still doesn't aliviate it.
Does anyone else have this or any advice as it's driving me mad.
