I've been having abdominal pain for over two months now, with the pain coming and going. The pain used to come about 4-5 hours after eating but it now seems to happen immediately after eating. Along with this pain, I am nauseous and am really burping a lot (I never burped before). I also have frequent diarrhea. When the pain is happening, my adbomen feels hard and swollen a bit. Also pressure hurts the abdomen. It started off as happening maybe three times a week, usually at night, but now it's every day, morning, afternoon and night. Yesterday I had a migraine and woke up this morning with a headache (unsure if it's related). Also, the last couple of days I have been really dizzy, like just moving my head and closing my eyes makes me really dizzy. I called Telehealth and the nurse there thought it may be either a twisted bowel or a lazy bowel. I was able to find information about a twisted bowel but not for the lazy bowel. I'm wondering what the symptoms are and if it pertains to me. I want to also mention that the first doctor I seen about this prescribed me acid reflux medication that did not work. I have also since done blood tests to see if I had the h. pylori bacteria (which I do not) and am scheduled for an ultrasound for my gallbladder.
