    Please comment on my symptoms

    I'm seeing a doctor in a few days but thought I'd try to get any possible feedback here on my symptoms.

    I've started having this fullness/pressure sensation in my upper abdomen area at the bottom of the sternum a few days ago. It makes me feel slightly short of breath. I feel it the most sitting down; I feel it much less standing up or laying down. This symptom is why I'm seeing a gastroenterologist soon. Prior to this, over the past couple months I've occasionally felt a little bloating sensation in the sigmoid colon area that I essentially ignored. I've been trying acid reducers (pepcid, tums) and can't say for certain yet if they actually help... I have no nausea, vomiting, bloody stools, change in appetite, trouble swallowing, or any other symptoms except slightly runny stools but I've had those for a long time and thought they were made softer/runny by my coffee consumption (might be mistaken on whether this is really the reason...) I'm 26 and male.
