Good afternoon everyone. I have a questions. In reading the various posts, the majority of people complain of pain either on the left or right side. My pain is a constant, buring, gnawing pain in the center of my abdomen in my navel area. Do any of you IBS sufferers out there have this pain. Do you feel relief at night? Please respond. I would really like to know. Thanks.
This kind of pain doesn't sound as much like ibs as it would for something like GERD or gastric/duodenal ulcer. Ulcers usually can be treated with acid inhibitors and/or antacids. If they're caused by H. pylori, antibiotics can get rid of them. If its that annoying, and especially since you described it as burning and gnawing, leads me to believe it's an ulcer...specifically a duodenal ulcer, since you said it's right around your navel, instead of the usual pain above the navel with gastric ulcers. But this is just assuming it's an ulcer at all. Better to just go get it checked out.
I have the same kind of gnawing burning sore pain I was diagnosed with h.pylori.Ive had tests done for gall bladder disease come up negative.I have gerd but ive had it for 25 years.This gnawing pain didnt start up till years later.Now i have the gnawing pain with no other symptoms 24/7.
