I have been struggling with the following consition for awile now and have been to my doctor. I suffer from stomach swelling, gas, upper abdominal pain which will sometimes spread to the chest. I will belch because of the above listed but this in no way gives me relief. Gagging will also occur from time to time. I also will develope headaches and slight dizzy spells. I also notice that my stomach will start pulsating sometimes before these symtoms start.

As I said I have been to my doctor and I have had a CT scan of my chest and abdomin and all was fine. I also had an ultrasound and everything was normal. My blood tests were also good. My doctor also sent me to a cardiologist for an echocardiogram and a stress test. Ths doctor told me nothing was wrong with my heart and I was in very good shape. IM going back in to see my doctor as IM very uncomfortable with the symptoms and my doctor is at a loss as to what could be causing these issues I have listed above.....so far anyway. I guess it will be for an upper or lower GI. I don't know what could be causing this given all the tests I have had thus far. COuld it be an infection of my stomach? parasites? I have no clue I guess I should be grateful it is not anything serious but I don't know what the ***l is wrong....oh and one thing I do not have is anxiety! Anyone here ever have the same symptoms? Any ideas what I could have that might not show up on ultrasound or CT scans? IM clueless and frustrated...........stuck in dicomfort.
