I'm 48 yo. For the past 6 years, I've experienced abdominal discomfort. On palpation, it can feel like a dull ache, and other times it will feel like needles. I can feel nauseated or bloated with it. The discomfort isn't really located in one specific area. It will feel worse starting about day 8 or 9 of my cycle, and ease up several days after ovulation, or about a week before my period. I still have regular periods, that are heavy the first couple days, then taper off----no unusual cramping. I have a couple small uterine fibroids. More recently, I will have discomfort with intercourse. Some days, I feel like I'm 10 months pregnant! "Irritable Bowel Syndrome" was the diagnosis I was given. I take Prilosec for GERD. Has anyone else experienced these sypmptoms, and given a diagnosis or relief?
