My story is it started in Feb with severe stomach pain on the left side, alittle above & alittle below my belly button (like a C around the belly button). Whatever I ate or drank just sat there, a lot of pain, gas, burping. Was told it was GERD/Acid Reflex and Divertiulitis. Put on Nexium & antibiotics unfortunately I could not tolerate none of the 3 antibiotics I was put on. I really didn't eat or drink for a month & loss 25 lbs. I've have an EGD, ultrasounds, X-rays, HIDA scan, blood test and thank God everything came back normal.
Was told it was IBS. Fast forward, stomach issues never went completely away. Still have the symptoms with the only true momentary relief is when I burp which is all the time. Now bouts with constipation have joined in and the latest scare is discomfort after a bowel movement and yellow residue when I wipe and blood on the tissue, discomfort around my rectum area and stool is brown (almost tan). My stomach rumbled and swirl sounds all the time. Sometimes when I don't eat it's worse. I take Tums & gas pills constantly. I'm at a loss but very scared. I'm having a Sigmoidoscopy next week.
I should also add I have large fibroids and fibromyalgia. Please someone help.
