Please help diagnose my partners problem
Hi everyone, I've been reading through a few threads, but none have helped conclusively pinpoint my girlfriends stomach problem she seems to be having.
I'll try and list everything I can.
Her pain mainly comes from a feeling of gas in her belly. It causes her great pain, and makes her burp a lot. She says that the burps offer relief, but it never gets rid of the gas.
It seems to start quite randomly, with the biggest pangs of pain coming late at night just before bed.
We have tried changing her diet, and nothing has helped. She has even tried a day of nothing but water, yet the stomach pain and burping still occured.
Sometimes, this gets so bad that she dry retches. Last night she vomited pure red bile into the toilet. The retches also cause gigantic burps to come out. She's also experienced some flatulence.
We're doing her best to figure out what foods cause the most pain, but it just seems that whatever she eats causes this problem.
If it helps, she has had this before a few years ago, but it recently came back again after we both fell ill from drinking milk whilst on holiday in Spain.
I know that isn't much information, but I hope someone can give me an idea of how I can help her, it's horrible seeing her in so much pain.
To summarize, here are her symptoms:
*Cramping that occurs on either side of the belly button
We've been to a doctor, and he has put her on on a few medications, which worked for a short while, but no longer do. Buscopan does not seem to help.
I hope someone can help, thanks for taking the time to read this post.
