    Weird stomach issues.

    Hi guys x l was just wondering for those who have stomach issues if you have ever experienced what lm about to write. On Sunday l didnt feel to clever,, l had little headaches and slight dizziness which came and went best part of the day. I also remember l was very thirsty Sunday night. When l woke up Monday morning my stomach was aching l went to the loo as normal thinking maybe l need a wee from drinking so much the night before, the pains were horrendous lower stomach mid stomach right side up to bottom ribs l was rocking for over and hour the pain was that bad l was reaching. l really thought l was going to end up at hospital,however we were away from home for the night so l suffered it until the pain was less and got got home my stomach was so tender to touch any way l got myself to bed with a heat pad and pain killers, The intense pain l had when l woke up didnt return but l was so achy and tender l was shuffling about when l had to move, I never called the doctor ( l guess with fibro you get used to ;suffering; it out.... yeaterday my stomach was still tender in the same places and today its not as tender.Has anyone experienced anythign like this? I really thought my appendix or something was bursting. Im not asickly person but l was reaching with the pain. Was also wonmdering if anyone who takes amitripyline has had this? I believe its used in children to stop them bedwetting and lm just wondering if maybe its doing soemthing to my bladder as whilst l can urinate l cant 'rush' the flow anymore. Anyway will leave it here or l will blab on. Thanks guys xxx ps l only take 5/10mcgs amitrip... dont like it and dont want to take more!lol

    Re: Weird stomach issues.

    Hi

    You don't say if you seen a doctor or had tests. I had something similar a couple of days ago it felt like I had a kidney stone. The symptoms were similar to yours but pain on the left. I also take amatryptilin 10mg, at such low levels doctors prescribe it as an antinflamitry drug. My doc thought I had ME and amatryptilin was going to help.

    Its a bit strange you having the samething after taking amatryptilin, I did end up in hospital but there was no sign of stones, but the pain was surely real.

    I don't thing I have ME CFE or Fybro, i was lucky to find my severe pain I suffered for over 10 years came from what is called a Richters' Hernia. Symptoms are same as ME CFS Fybro & IBS and also look like heart attack, chest problems, bowel problems because it throws up different symptoms over the years.

    My story is a long one with a long fight against doctors who didn't believe me, it nearly killed me in the end. I only say this because a few weeks ago my doc said I had ME after months of pain again but I think the Rhicter's hernia is back which is not good for me. If you want to know more let me know.

    CFS, ME, Fybro are used when docs don't have a clue or cant see it on a scan, my condition could not be tested for or seen. Also the fact it happens more in women vary rarely and men virtually never makes doctors over look it.

    Hernias have a lot to answer for but are hard to find.

    Re: Weird stomach issues.

    Hi there nice to meet you and thanks for your reply x I was prescribed the amitryp to relax my muscles get a lot of muscle spasms in back and morning stiffness and pain. Ive been taking ami for 4/5 months. This is the 2nd time lve tried to reply my laptop keeps going off grrr lol. I never went to the docs this time to be honest l think l waste my time going all they do is offer you more pain killers well here in the Uk they do and/or antidepressants! Mind the state l was in l should of called an ambulance at least then l would of been thoroughly examined! Anyway lve never ever experienced that pain before and l know it wasnt the food we all ate the same...l never felt well the day before headaches dizziness no appetite... in the past lve had lower stomach tenderness and seen the doc and once it was a urine infection. Ive also had a right sided pain before when starting to wee whcih was severe and made me sit bolt up right and grab my side this hasnt happened for a few months and has only happened a few times.. l thought it was cos my period was due...when l see the doc about this she never found anything. I guess if it happens again l SHOULD insist they check me out proper!Id love to hear about your case if you dont mind and have time l hope your ok now? Will leave it here cant remember what else l wrote about before l lost connection grrr will look up about the richters hernia see what it says thanks again take care x

    Re: Weird stomach issues.

    wow Mark!! I hope your going to be ok!!!???? Thanks for taking all the time to write back to me in such details! You must be so fed up l really feel for you... you have been through hell! I guess your in the Uk too? You mentioned Bupa. I know how you feel watching tv lol when lm aching etc l end up on my bed with tv on too and dont we all wish we could have a real life 'house'? lol bear in mind he would half kill us first lol, Im sorry this is short but l will be back soon laptop keeps packing up. Thanks again and lm sure lots of the others will come on soon to join in the topic you take care x
    Hi just briefly this is whats been happening to me..... now and again l get this severe pain sometimes stabbing in my sternum area l firs noticed this happening before my period was due... then it got to the point where it would happen any time of the month. I cant really describe it it hurts lasts for seconds but feel longer. Sometimes it can be off and on for days other times it might just happen once. This has been going on for a few years. I was diagnosed with graves disease nealry 5 years ago but l know l had it alot longer before that... l ended up getting a thyroidectomy nearly 2 years ago as my levels couldnt be controlled l was drug resistant kept getting more and more hyper despite large doses of meds to control it. I also noticed my upper body is weak, for example if l carry a few shopping bags l pay for it for days achy ribs sternum pain etc the cold also has this effect on me too. I also get another pain not often l would say just at bottom of left rib cage that feels like a pulling? down towards my middle of stomach but its one sided.I get a lot of aches in my ribs a few days before Sundays episode l had a few nights bad rib pain bottom right even my ribs were painful to touch l could hardly move. I also get what l call upper middle of back muscle spasms, lower sacrum area stiffness and pain and pain where my bra fastens. By evening l really feel like l am swollen around my ribs clothes feel so uncomftable. I hope you dont mind me writing all this l think you have enough on your plate! to be listening to me! My fingers are swollen and through the night l cannot take of my rings. Sunday l also noticed l had deep rings around my lower legs where my socks had been they are not tight... they stayed that way for hours even when l had removed them had a bath etc. If its not one thing its another l hope this is making sense? lol I could go on and on but will leave it here let you watch HOUSE lol you take care of yourself and thanks for replying lm sure you will help many people here without realising it. Take care Mark thinking of you and wishing you a speedy recovery x

    Re: Weird stomach issues.

    Hi Mark sorry your having such a rough time l bet your so fed up nothing worse when you cant help yourself l cant believe you have to wait around at home in pain like that with the risk of your hernia bursting!!! No lve never had a rash on my hands or my body. Even as a kid l never caught one childhood disease lol eg measles mumps chicken pox l ailed nothing as a child but l guess lm making up for it now I had a bit pain today when l needed the loo bad stomach cramps (nothing like that sunday)which lasted a while l tried antacids and pain killers just incase but it seemed to settle of its own accord. I dont know whether this is connected but lve just noticed when l eat anything l feel light headed almost dizzy?come to think of it l felt like that Ssturday before Sundays epsiode hmmmm. Will watch it. Anyway dont worry about not been able to answer my posts l know your not well so get yourself some sleep if possible lve had them pain killers before they didnt agree with me hope they help you l also have some tramadol which l havnt tried yet l hate meds always scared of side effects!! Take care Mark x

    Re: Weird stomach issues.

    I am wondering if you have had children. The reason I ask is my sister had a child who is now 15. For nearly 13 years she had those symptoms you have, she was diagnosed with critical fatigues syndrome with IBS. She was told to manage it with different meds and lifestyle changes. It was only when she ended up in hospital for something the doctor did a quick examination of her stomach. He said to her do you know you have a hernia, she was a bit supprised because her regular doctor had examined her many times and not noticed. Apparently she got it after having her child and has lived with it for so long. She had it corrected a couple of years ago and her health is back to normal she even lost weight. The more I read about Fibromyalgia, CFS IBS the more I believe some people have hernias that have gone undiagnosed. The symptoms of my hernia are the same as Fibro, CFS IBS but I know what I have.

    It is worth asking your doc to check closely for a hernia of some type, you may be suffering where a simple op like my sister had could change everything.

    Re: Weird stomach issues.

    I suffer bad IBS from fibro and perhaps you should look into the symptoms of that and see if it is the issue. It can be treated, but of course with more drugs or diet changes you may not be able to deal with right now

    Re: Weird stomach issues.

    I agree, I've got FMS and IBS too, and they often go hand in hand. I'm actually going to the dr next week to see if I can get some meds for my IBS, it's always been a problem, but it's been getting worse the last few months. You should go talk to your dr too. It's no fun to have all of these problems, but we all have to take them one at a time.

    Im telling you, once you pass your thirties with active fms or mps you will really need to get checked pretty often to keep your system balanced enough for you to cope with daily life.

    Good that you have answers. And cysts are very common in women. Hang in there!

    I have also bad stomach and it is getting worse with medicines. Is there any good diet to get rid of it? I am searching for some natural stuffs.
