Hello, I wonder if anyone can help me as I am fed up of feeling this way.

For 4 years now I have been getting a sharp stabbing pain once a day, usually in the morning. This pain is always in the exact same place every time, which is about an inch below my belly button (navel). As soon as I get this pain I automatically feel the urge to spit. When I spit the first 2 times it is completely normal and clear, the 3rd it is pink, the 4th it is pure blood. No bile. I carry on spitting out the blood and then it goes back to pink then clear. It makes me feel weak for a few moments and then i can get on with my day as normal. I also used to get really bad sweat attacks at the same time, but haven't had them for a while. What I mean by this is that I start to sweat from head to toe, to the point it is streaming down my body, and as quickly as it comes it disappears.

Along with this I feel weak all the time, and my lymphs are always raised in my armpits and under my chin.

I have been to the doctor but they just prescribe gaviscon which makes no difference. I have had tests done for ulcers but there isn't one and i don't believe it is IBS as i don't have any troubles going to the toilet. Although recently I do think that the pains may be related to not having food in the stomach. I don't bring up bile either or have pains in my upper stomach area.

I am really fed up of feeling this way. Does anyone know what it is? Or know of any alternative therapy, herbs or pills that will help ease my symptoms?

Many thanks

Peter
