Hello all. I haven't posted here in a year and have grown much stronger in being able to resist my hypo tendencies, but I finally have one that's getting the best of me again. I'll try to be brief about this. I was fine until two weeks ago or so, at which point I noticed that when I would swallow a bite of food, I'd have a moment of sharp but mild discomfort when it would hit my stomach. Some days this happens with every single bite of food I eat, some days it's inconsistent, a few days I didn't notice it. Sometimes it's even ever so slightly there even when I'm not eating, as when I take a breath. Sometimes, even when I haven't eaten, my general upper abdominal area feels like it's twisted up or sort of "hard". Not hard to the touch, but like a squeezing. I don't have any other symptoms; no unintentional weight loss, great appetite, no nausea, stool is a normal color, just this little pain that won't go away when I swallow something.
The only thing that I can think of is that the week leading up to the Easter holiday, I went to several meals with various family and friends where I ate until I was so full that it made me sick. I don't know if expanding your stomach or forcing too much food through your esophagus in a short amount of time can damage or tear it or, if so, how long that even takes to heal, but I was painfully full a few times and this started right after Easter. But I've taken OTC antacids for a week, taken anxiety pills to see if it's simply psychological, but nothing seems to help. Just worried since it's been this long with seemingly inconsistent or no improvement, and of course bad thoughts have begun to take over. I'm strong enough never to google now, but if there's anyone here who's dealt with this sort of thing before and knows whether or not it "sounds" bad, I'd love some insight so I can return to my healing path. Thanks all and wishing everyone here peace and happiness.
