    Constant Feeling Of Indigestion

    For the past 6 weeks, I have been experiencing feelings of constant indigestion, even when I have not eaten. I awake in the mornings with feelings of my aesophogus being blocked and this continues throught the day. It feels at times as if food is floating up my aesophogus. I do not experince any acid indigestion (no burning in stomach or heartburn). I have been experiencing discomfort in upper & lower part of stomach whether I eat or not. Also, recently, my bowel movement has changed significantly. I do no go as frequently and when I go, it is often soft and small and carrys a stronger odor. Also, I frequently feel as if I need to pass stool but no go.

    I am no doctor, but it sounds like syptoms of GERD and IBS combimed.
    You don't necessarily need to have indigestion to reflux food, and the change in bowel movements, specially constipation can worsen symptoms of GERD.
    Have you seen a GI, or your GP about this?

    What is your current diet like? Breakfast, lunch, dinner/supper? Do you eat between the main meals?

    I've been having the same problem! What is GERD?

    GERD....Gastro esophagal reflux disease you do have some symptoms of acid reflux and IBS! You don't have to have heartburn to have acid reflux, in fact half of GERD patients don't have heartburn, like me I seldom do tho lately more so. Mine is in the throat, burning, phlegm, cough, sore throat and the upper chest may burn sometimes. GERD has many symptoms and it seems different for everyone!
