I seem to have developed more symptoms which are worrying me more and more. Pain in the back between my shoulder blades, and pain underneath the left rib cage spreading through the abdomen. I also have some reflux. I've just started to recover from flu with lots of coughing but just don't think it is the coughing that's causing the pain. It happens after I've eaten, about an hour or so. Yesterday I had the most awful cracking pain under my left rib cage area. Whilst I know I suffer more and more from anxiety and stress from work and all the fizz at Xmas and rich food over New Year didn't help, I've been eating fairly normally since then. I have struggled with my appetite in the last 2 weeks cos of flu so eaten wholemeal bread, but drinking honey and lemon / squash. Now my appetite is returning to normal but tonight I finding my stomach sore and stabbing pains, but no gas! (Amazingly). Bowels seem okay as well. Trouble is Dad died of Ca Pancreas, his brother had similar and two of his kids have had cancer, one a survivor the other not.
I have finally got my Gastroenterologist appt on Tuesday afternoon though my GP has put me down as routine and ? IBS.
Are the symptoms similar to others?? I guess only the appointment on Tuesday will begin to resolve these issues... I hope so but I feel so pessimistic.
Thanks for answering
