I have been having too many burps and passing gas for a month now. Over the last week I experienced a burning sensation in my stomach and some pain near my navel. Though I am eating ok and no problems swallowing, I have clammy hands and feet and don’t feel well. I guess I have lost a kilo in about 10 days, I have an ultrasound in two days but really scared as I can’t face the reality. I have a funny feeling like a pulse in my navel too. Please help.
I have just had my scan, feel much better than yesterday as the sonographer scanned the upper abdomen and said "so far so good". I dont have images of the stomach though. Though I feel better, I am a bit worried that the ultrasound might not have caught the problem.
Will let you know how I go tomorrow as well.
Quick update, anxiety got the better of me and I almost begged my GP to give me a referral. I saw the specialist earlier this week. I had my endoscopy done today and it was reflux oesophagitis (mild) . I have been asked to see the specialist again in 2-4 weeks and to continue to take my medication till then. All this while I continued to be reminded of your support. Thank you once again and I really hope all goes well with you..
