Question
I've been having issues with my stomach, in the upper and mid area. I feel discomfort almost everyday. This are my symptoms; I have a sensation like if something causing pressure in my inside on that area it feels like a balloon or something, when I eat spicy or acidi food with in 20 minutes I star feeling indigestion, inflammation and feels firm/bloated/hard, I feel like I have to burp or like I have to go #2, and I also get burning sensation like real hot in that same area. My dr thought it was my gallbladder but the ultrasound came back normal. What could it be? I feel like something is there causing pressure!!! Plz help!
Sorry it's in the upper and mid RIGHT side
Also I always have the sensation to go have a bowle movement nut when I go nothing comes out! FYI I go #2 every morning!

Hi,
Have you had an endoscopy to look for acidity / reflux etc as cause for your symptoms? If yes, please let me know the report. You have a feature to upload the report by yourself on the right side of this query page. You may want to utilize it.
Please make changes to your diet by avoiding spicy food and legumes, which produce a lot of gas. Increase intake in fruits and fresh green leafy vegetables.
Take care

Getting an Upper GI endoscopy would be a good start to rule out several things.
Infact if symptoms are discomforting a CT abdomen may be needed later as well.
To me if US abdomen is normal and an upper GI is also normal then i would think of an acid peptic disease or an Take care

What would they look for with the upper GI endoscopy?

Upper GI endoscopy looks at the esophagus, stomach and the first and second part of duodenum so get to know or rule out several things in making a diagnosis.

Hypothetically there are a list of features we look into - mucosal erosion, ulceration, inflammatory changes and other unusual appearance.
