    Upper Abdominal Pain - Mystery Illness? Anyone had the same?

    Hey all. I will be short and sweet.

    About one week ago, I suddenly started feeling nauseous and had stomach pains. Was tested for Appendicitis and that was not the case.

    Now, a week later the pain has somewhat shifted to the upper abdomen. I have little to no appetite and bowl movements are not what there were previous to feeling this way (Far less common).

    At a glance:

    - Upper stomach pain, but it can move to lower abdomen and back up again. (Neither left or right) Just like a stomach ache.
    - When I drink water, I get instant relief for about 2 seconds
    - When I go to sleep, it goes away. But as soon as I wake up, it is back again.
    - Seems to be worse in the mornings
    - Slight nausea
    - Originally not sure what it was brought on by, but seemed to have started when I ate

    After seeing the doctor numerous times some diagnosis's were:

    - Stomach infection
    - Acid reflux
    - Constipation

    Has anybody had anything similar to this? If so how did you deal with it?
    I am awaiting results of a new blood test to see if they can find anything.

    I have never had anything like this before either.


    Thanks for the insight

    First of all "Have you had an Endoscopy"...
    This will show up what is causing your symptoms.
    Acid Reflux, an Ulcer or IBS can all cause similar symptoms. An Endoscopy/Biopsy would show if you could have H.Pylori as that can cause symptoms as well.
    Maybe your recent blood tests will show up what the problem is,
    All the best,

    Might just be a stomach virus. It's been going around here....similar symptoms. Some have even had a low grade temp.
