Dear ...!
thanks for the query.

I have gone through your mail and could grasp the summmary of your problems. There seem to be two issues. 1. Pains and aches pertaining to the lower stomach(abdomen) with flatulence and bowel disturbances and 2. Burping and belching with gaseous distension of the upeer stomach. These symptoms ssuggest both gastric problems as well as problems with the bowels. Usually a combinaation of these are seen in a condition called irritable bowel syndrome and a lot of these complainyts are due to irregular eating and sleeping patterns. You may require an ultrasound of the abdomen along with a upper GI endoscopy and a colonosccopy before starting anny medication.

Hi, I have GERD & sometimes will belch & it is like rotten eggs (sulfur) I also get pain in left upper quadrant. Will sometimes vomit and I usually feel better. However 3 weeks ago I had same symptoms for 2 - 3 days no vomiting. All of a sudden in the night I vomited projectile and was unable to control a bout of diarrhea in my bed, still did not feel better. Spent 3 days in bed exhausted and week. I thought I must have flu. 4th day better but not 100%. 4 days later same problem, I did not lose control of bowels but was sick, had pain in stomach was weak & could not eat. It lasted 4 days. Thursday last week felt recovered enough to continue normal activities & have been fine until today when about 2 hours ago started feeling nauseous, return of sulfur and mild discomfort in upper left quadrant. Have had Gastroscopy 2 months ago & am scheduled for 24 hr PH study. I am very concerned as I cannot eat properly. I have cut down on black tea, have not had coffee and trying to eat a balanced diet. Can you give me any advise, my doctor is on vacation?

I have been experiencing abdominal pain, sharper in upper left, and bloating for several days. Similar to last bout of acute colitis, but no diarrhea -- hard, small stools instead. Am also experiencing severe achiness overall. Nausea after eating but no vomiting. I have celiac and GERD and take 20mg omeprazole in the morning. Could this just be a virus or should i be concerned that it will develop into additional GI issues? No gastroenterology appointments available for several weeks. Is there anything I can do to feel better in the meantime?

I woke up this morning with a black coating on my tongue . I had diarrhea the night before and took pepto bismol to help relieve the diarrhea.
