Stomach feels heavy

Posted , 8 users are following.

Hi

I have a history of gerd and have had an endoscopy about a year and a half ago which showed a hiatal hernia, and have been put on a ppi. Also had a colonoscopy whuch showed nothing. A few months later, i had severe upper and lower abdominal pains and lack of appetite which then led me to have an ultrasound, which also showed nothing. A year later i underwent a ct scan with oral contrast which showed colitis and have been put on antibiotics. However they didn't find anything in my stomach. A ct scan would've showed gastritis however nothing showed up. I just don't know what to do.

    Doctor that read ct scan results didn't seem concerned about stomach since nothing showed up on scan.

      Hi Jack...your story is a bit like mine except that I had gastritis, gerd and hiatal hernia.

      Been dealing with stomach and digestive issues for over 1 year now. But juxt recently started to.get some relief. I found a alternative dr who says all my digestive issues are really coming from parasites, something that conventional doctors rarely suspect or bring up. I am doing much better than before.

      Hi Mary! Do you mind sharing what you are taking that has offered you relief. Like you I have here and hiatal hernia and has been having digestive issues for a year as well. It's such a tough condition to live with. I am so glad you are getting answers.

      That's interesting cause doctors usually rarely rule out parasites as a cause of a certain problem. I'm glad that you've found some relief. Could you please pm me the supplement name ?

      Prayers for you and your daughter; stay strong. These stomach issues are really draining mentally and physically. Its just this feeling of a heavy stomach is just unbearable.

      Thank You jack Yes Mentally draining is a good way to put it It's tough when you feel so heavy you can barely breathe or walk I'm going back to GI doc and telling him I just can't do this anymore My daughter told me Mom you got to take care of you Made me cry 

      Prayers for you as well I wish you all the luck in the world finding an answer and getting thru this

    Hi Jack,

    I understand what your going through. I have the same problems with NAFLD. Hiatial hernia and ulcers. I have bought of severe constipation and explosive diarrhea, which I'm going through the last 2 days. Its very exhausting, no energy. I have last 60 lbs since February. When I tell the Drs that I'm in pain in my liver area, they look at me like I'm crazy and its impossible. I do vomit and nausea, can't stand certain smells. My husband was cooking chicken I ran in the kitchen and threw the whole skillet out the back door. Smells like a rotten corpse. I don't how to describe it. I have various growths, not pregnant. Had a hysterectomy at 28 and now I'm 44. I wish I could give you some good advise, but nothing seems to work for me. Getting through each day is huge!!! I don't eat much these days, of course I can't stand smells. I guess I just wanted you to know your not alone, in in your boat with you and I know your pain. Hang in there and let me know if you find anything else out.

      Hi danielle,

      Hope you're doing fine. I also suffer from such nausea regarding smells. And have lost a lot of weight. I just don't know what to do. I guess we'll just have to hang in there and hope for the best.
