More than IBS and reflux?

Hi all.. does anyone have any idea of what these symptoms might add up to?

- Abdominal pain (mostly burning sensation)
- On and off chills
- On and off headache (front, right, left)
- Fatigue
- NO diarrhea or constipation
- 1 week with these symptoms

I have been diagnosed in the past with IBS and I have acid reflux. I thought those might be important to mention.

Thanks for any ideas, thoughts or suggestions.
JD

Re: More than IBS and reflux?

If you are taking your med for acid reflux the next question is where is the abdominal pain? Are you running a fever?

Re: More than IBS and reflux?

Hi.. thanks for the reply.

No, I am not running a fever and I am taking my reflux medication. The abdominal pain is in my "gut".. upper abdomen. And sometimes I feel a dull ache a little to my right side, but not the appendix.

Something I forgot to mention was that about 1 month ago I started "lightly" smoking again.. I say lightly because it was anywhere from 2 - 6 cigarettes a day. And I've read that smoking can irritate reflux and IBS. I think the smoking started up due to stress, which is now at a low. I haven't had any today and I don't plan to have any more. It's just not worth it.. that's why I quit in the first place!!

Yes..you know.. smoking bad. That could have done it, but if you were real stressed you could have an ulcer. You might need to see a doctor.
