Stomach problems?

I was sort of diagnosed with acid reflux 2 yrs ago when I experienced a chronic long term sore throat.

Dont seem to notice many symptoms tho apart from indegestion.

Question is can acid reflux upset your stomach?

Ive had IBS in the past and thought maybe it was that causing problems but its different eg lower abdominal pressure and lots of wind, could this be another symptom of reflux?

Im really worried now about other possiblities.

Re: Stomach problems?

Acid reflux does not CAUSE lower digestive problems, but many people do have both. Acid reflux is connected to burning or cramping in the upper abdomen, near the bottom of the rib cage.

Re: Stomach problems?

Hi, All my pain and discomfort is around the belly button area. I do get some higher up tho. I also get Bloating Noisy Stomach and lots of Wind. Also alternating Diarrhea/constipation. I was diagnosed with Hiatal-Hernia and Diverticulitis, also Gerd after treatment for H.Pylori. I'm not sure whether its the Diverticulitis which causes some of my symptoms or not . Have you had a Colonoscopy. I do get a lot of indigestion but no Acid burning. See your GP, anything that bothers me I go and get it investigated. Solofelix.

Re: Stomach problems?

More than likely it is a mixture of all of these disorders coming together. I have multiple issues as well and multiple symptoms because of it. I think your IBS is a major issue causing you problems, but it is also apparent you are having digestive issues such as acid reflux as well. A good GI doc can make a great difference for you! I hope your problems improve and not the opposite. I suffer with IBS on top of everything else I have so I truly feel for you. Good luck.
