Hello,


I've had this problem with my stomach for nearly 5years and it's completely ruining my life. I'm a fit and healthy athlete and have had the camera down my throat and blood tests both providing negative results. I cannot remember the last time I had a meal (of any size) without feeling abdominal discomfort.

Nausea
Acid reflux
cramping
vomiting
immediate fullness

These symptoms I suffer from everyday. I have seen numerous GPs and I feel they have not really understood how badly this is affecting me. I'm a strong character and so try to stay positive. I look healthy and because of this I feel they dismiss concern.

If anyone can help me, please get back in touch and I will go into much more detail.

Warm regards,
Michael

  • I don't have an answer as such but I can help you.I'm lacking technical terms but can inform you when I'm home and have the information at hand. You basically have afunctioning disorder with the band if muslce that controlsfood entering the stomach. This causes all sorts of problems and is where such terms as 'knot in the stomach' and 'butterflies' come from.I currently take to different subscriptions daily to ease the situation. Lanzopralzole once a day to stop too much acid being pumped into the stomach and another 3 times a day before my main meals which helps ease the band of muscle to make eating easier.I also have a meeting scheduled with a cognitive behavioural therapist to see if the problems are triggered mentally and to give me a different perspective on things.Drop me a private message with your contact details and I'll give you more info when i can.

  • Your symptoms may be caused by psychiatric problem - like generalized anxiety disorder(GAD) or even a Panic Disorder [ which may be so intense and interconnected with your gastrointestinal system through your nerves that it manifests itself as terrible nausea/vomit/etc.>I have seen numerous GPs and I feel they have not really understood how badly this is affecting me. I'm a >strong character and so try to stay positive. I look healthy and because of this I feel they dismiss concern.If you're fine physically and the GPs' dismiss you - possibly because their experience and education in regards to the attempts to try and treat you fail - then you should look into yourself mentally.I would suggest visiting a psychiatrist and/or a neurologist. Another poster pointed out cognitive behavioral therapy - which I'd also agree might help alleviate this.

  • I just posted a comprehensive reply about just this to another thread - I tried the gluten free diet for 3 months and it didn't really help me, although it wouldn't hurt for you to get tested though!The nervous butterflies feeling happens to me too, brought on by the sneaking unease and vague feeling of not being 'right' I feel when an episode of diarrhoe, feeling of fullness, nausea and burping is about to happen. My gastroenterologist thinks it might be a problem with the stomach not moving food along properly, or too much acid. I'm having a camera down the throat soon, to check for anything untoward. My family doctor blames stress - it does happen when I'm stressed, but it also happens when I'm not stressed. The gastroenterologist thinks there might be an underlying problem that flares up when I'm stressed or eat the wrong food. Try keeping a food diary to see if you can spot foods that might be making your condition flare up. For me it's Cola, cream, too much insoluble fibre (lentils, fruit etc), or certain antibiotics.See if anything you take for the symptoms helps a little (this could be a clue as to what is causing the symptoms) - your doctor may be able to give you something stronger than you could buy yourself over the counter.

  • Gluten and bad bacteria cause the anxious feeling and stress too I don't want to alarm you - but i ate a bowl of pasta after this feeling came on and i spent the next two weeks in hospital ... get an allergy test anyway and see what happensyou seem like you need BIG BIG help with bacteria - and i would recommend colloidal silver and a cleanse for the stomach that kills parasites too - v important that you relax and learn how to breath exercises.Stick to the Gluten thing ... and avoid starchy foods esp alcahol and yeast as it may be yeast infection also.Good luck and remember - silver and probioticsyou WILL get worse before you get better with these medicines

  • Don't ever take Colloidal Silver, It is very bad for you, just google it and read ALL the articles and side effects. Why would you even tell people this? you are not a Doctor or have any expertise in this field except trying to promote a website, Also I asked my Doctor about this and he said " DON'T EVEN TRY IT, IT CAN BE VERY HARMFUL TO YOUR HEALTH" and the risk outweigh any benefit, if you have a problem with digestion go to Walgreens, CVS, Pharmacy, Target, WalMart and look for a product called ALIGN it has a probiotic that is very good for you and it helps alot, I have taken it for 1 week and already notice a difference, I would recommend this to everyone. Good Luck! and Hope everyone feels better, Dont' let it beat you. Be strong and Godbless.ChrisGluten and bad bacteria cause the anxious feeling and stress too I don't want to alarm you - but i ate a bowl of pasta after this feeling came on and i spent the next two weeks in hospital ... get an allergy test anyway and see what happensyou seem like you need BIG BIG help with bacteria - and i would recommend colloidal silver and a cleanse for the stomach that kills parasites too - v important that you relax and learn how to breath exercises.Stick to the Gluten thing ... and avoid starchy foods esp alcahol and yeast as it may be yeast infection also.Good luck and remember - silver and probioticsyou WILL get worse before you get better with these medicines

Chris I suppose you have read BOTH sides of the argument for and against it's use? or are you still reading the - 1960's cases of the only 1 or 2 people in history with agryia! (The ONLY KNOWN side effect of taking silver) Luckily for us well researched and respected distributers of this medical wonder are curing a lot of peoples problems ... SORRY pharma. "buy my product" *you can make your own silver at home - think about it. Don't take my word for it - I am not a doctor - or AM I??? obviously you know who I am already - thanks for sharing. Perhaps you can also explain why there are so many scorpios in my life? just do your own research while we still have use of this wonderful internet and don't listen to any product pushers - do what I did - listen to real peoples stories on forums like this one. The only reason I am writing this is so that people hopefully start thinking for themselves and realise that you can make a choice and make a difference in your life. Or you can remain scared by poorly backed up claims about what is good and bad for you, bullied into drinking water with flouride in - eating GM foods that cause allergies and immune system problems and buying fat free foods! thinking it will keep you from getting fat - biology is not so simple. Remember one thing ... things that have little human intervention in their making are the best foods (fruit, veg) everything prosessed is unfortunately 80% useless as and benifical nutrient inthe body. Answering your question as to HOW i can say this online - I have used silver for months and have avoided ALL the office colds and flus so far - i'm not blue - and i feel better than ever. SORRY! I'd also recomend seriously looking into some completely FREE breathing exercises also.

  • Colloidal silver is NOT dangerous, and your doctor probably told you that because he had a house or car payment to make that month. Doctors are little more than college-educated drug peddlers. If you feel the need to seek professional medical care, see a naturopath, as they understand the mind-body-soul connection. Your issue may have started due to stress, but stress does have very real physical symptoms...or, it could have started from a bug that you haven't gotten rid of and physical symptoms can create anxiety in many ways. A symptom of hyperthyroidism is panic attacks. But, stress is ******n your thyroid....so, it is very circular and you need a medical care worker that understands the connection and that the whole body needs to be treated, not just have the symptoms masked. For a college thesis paper (purporting doctors prescribe medications that are not needed was the basic concept), I made a doctor's appointment for a simple check-up and falsely claimed that sometimes I didn't feel well after I ate. After zero tests and just a cursory going over...the doctor proceeded to write me five prescriptions. Two proton pump-type inhibitors, Xanax for anti-anxiety, Amoxycilin-"in case" it was a bacterial infection and one more I can't remember what it was for now, it's been awhile. This happened in various degrees at three more randomly selected doctor's offices. There are many things that can cause stomach upset and the other feelings you are experiencing. The best thing to do is approach with a whole body approach. Colloidal silver is an all-natural antibiotic-the ONLY cases of 'blue people' or argyria, as its clinically called, were cases of people preparing their own silver, that didn't test the strength and they used it multiple times a day for over three years before they saw any adverse effects. Steven Barrett is barely a doctor and it has been proven he receives funds directly from Big Pharma to run quack watch, and most of the adverse warnings about colloidal silver are spun from his website. He even had oranges, as in the fruit, on his list as a "debunked" source of Vitamin C for awhile. He is a paid shill. Probiotics are a great tool to return the gut flora as it should be, look for ones that do not have to be refrigerated as they tend to break down in the stomach before they reach the intestines where they are truly needed. Avoid dairy, white flour and white sugar. Increase consumption of fermented foods-kim chee, sauerkraut and kefir etc...as well as raw fruits and vegetables. Learn breathing and relaxation techniques. Do these everyday, not just when you are stressed, so they become a way of life naturally. Visit a naturopathic doctor that will treat your entire being, not just attempt to mask your symptoms.Good luck to you!

  • We also use Silver in our home to prevent and even cure everything under the sun. When you see an ad for a drug and the only thing they can do on the ad is tell you all the side effects like bleeding of the nose, throat closing up, fevers, stomach, heart, death and the list goes on for every chemical drug out there. Reason; it is a chemical and not pure at ALL for the body to process. People fear the unknown this is sad but when millions are taking over the counter chemical drugs and die from them they are leaving loved ones behind just so the government can make a buck. Well the fact is Silver is pure, it is not and has not killed anyone and the only people against it are for the big drug companies and paid doctors. I don't premote anything however I will say this when your self or your children are sick the best thing you can do for them is give them something that the body knows what to do with, chemical drugs are very ******n the body study after study has shown this. Silver will remove the flu out of the body in as little as 5 hours I know I have seen this over and over again, but for those who don't know or even try Silver can go days having a flu and even die.
