Hi , im so glad that I am not alone with the same symtoms (symptoms) you have.
I am 54 years old and in my menopausal period .
My mother has this pain for so long that I can imagine how it feels and
was crying to have her being brought to the hospital and they cannot
see what's wrong . Now I know I inherited the same symptoms.
So is it hereditary or its one of the symptoms of menopause ?
I experience difficulty or shortness of breath when I feel the stomach ache,
just this year and I am scheduled to have an endoscopy because of this feeling
wc I keep on delaying because of imagine anxiety over the procedure .
I am taking pantoloc meds once a day , it regulates my acid producing stomach .
It helps but the pains is still there so it must be 1.) due to my depleting hormones ?
2. Heredity ? 3. maybe due to some food that I ate that is not digested well or
There are really some veggies , dairy that causes gas ?
But I can share you my immediate relief from this pain ,,,
I put on top of my stomach a hot water rubber bag (hot compress ) and it immediately
soothes my discomfort ... Try it , just wrap it with a hand towel so you wont get burn
and also I put on a slice of ginger in my mouth and let it stay to melt , bite a little to get
its juice till you get use to it ... Hope this will help ...
So glad that this forum exists ! I wont be worried anymore coz I am not alone
with this crazy feeling ...
Your symptoms of acidity, abdominal pain and shortness of breath could all be attributed to GERD, (Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease), where the acid contents of the stomach come up into the esophagus. Since medications don't seem to be helping much why don't you try life style measures. Take frequent small meals. Eat dinner about two hours before sleeping. Elevate the head end of the bed. Keep a food diary and note down what aggravates your symptoms and avoid them. Ensure to maintain optimum weight by regular exercise. Avoid non steroidal anti inflammatory medications NSAID's, quit smoking, eliminate alcohol and reduce stress levels. These measures need to be practiced long term for results.
