I have had severe stomach pain after eating for about 15+ years now.
The pain begins after i eat certain foods and most sodas.(but not soda water). It feels like im being kicked in the stomach for about 20 minutes right behind the sternum and gets so bad i cant breathe, stand up or do much of anything. It hurst so bad i sweat and can only prey it stops. Ive been checked for ulsers, spleen problems, liver problems, tyroid probs., intestonal probs, and just about everything else.. i have even had my stomach folded to stop my GERD. but the pain still persists. I know it isnt heartburn or gas and no medication helps. I was in the military and have a Dr. now and nobody can tell me what is causing it. they say that i dont need me to set it off to see any problems but i think i do. does anyone know what can cause a severe pain behind the sternum that isnt any of the things ive mentioned?? ive lived with it for a long time and would like to know whats wrong. Thanks
