I wake up every morning with pain or ache in my upper abdomen, just under breastbone. I can't sleep or lay on my left side because it makes it worse. My gastro doctor has not addressed this problem. First she said I had post infectious IBS. So we dealt with that, back in 2015. It all started in 2014. In November I was diagnosed with chronic idiopathic constipation. I can believe that because I was never regular. But, I'm still having the upper abdomen problem. It can continue for the whole day sometimes and I am miserable. No one seems to be able to help. In the beginning, nortriptoline helped the pain. But now its an every day thing. Should I look for another dr? I am in the U.S. and going to the University of Michigan clinic.
