Sore tummy

I have ibs, acid reflux and anxiety and at the moment i have a really sore and achy tummy, it is sore at the front of my tummy under my belly button ( sort of bikini line area) and a little to the left, and i have been having a pain like a niggle/ spasm/ stitch under my left rib. I also have a slight low backache and think i might be weeing more. My tummy has been really loud today with grumbling noises which also feel like they are in my bottom. While eating my dinner last night i needed to burp but it wouldn't come up and this has been happening today as well. I seem to be passing alot a wind from the other end more than usual today. I have been taking mebeverine and paracetamol but not feeling much better, starting to worry something might be wrong, but think its more likely an ibs flare up.

Hi this pretty much sounds like me on a day to day basis, the key is to listen to your body and keep a food diary to see what triggers this. Your symptoms are more or less the same mine. One of my triggers are portion size. I should only have a mini plate and then return for more later. Try to to stress because that is part of the cycle x


Hi you need to see GP when I get this its because of the Acid Reflux-you need some GAVISCON are LANZOPROZLE

All the best


Hi, i have omeperzole and gaviscon which i took last night.


Hi, thanks for your replies, ive had a bad nights sleep, think i have been awake more than asleep, i was having waves of sickness and feeling generally restless, then i rolled over this morning and had a sharp pain between my shoulders in the middle of my back and now i cant turn my head much, i suffer with the top of my back, neck and shoulders due to muscle tightness from anxiety.
