stomach problems again--getting worried
« on: June 13, 2014, 10:15:21 AM »
for the past several days I've been having some stomach problems that are not going away and are making me rather worried.  I'm trying to tell myself that this happened a few months ago and resolved itself so it's probably not cancer or something, but that is always the sneaky little thought that comes in as soon as I try to think about something else. 

Can anyone shed light on this?  I have very little appetite, feel bloated and full after eating not much; some digestive problems, and stomach discomfort.  I am a bit concerned because I know the bloating/feeling full can be signs of cancer, esp ovarian and stomach. I feel better in the morning and worse after eating.  This has been going on since Monday or Tuesday.  Should I be worried?  should I go to the doctor?

Hi, I've had stomach issues since forever. :(

I have bloating and burping on and off. Funny though that as a child, I would recite the alphabet while burping.

I guess it's partly because of stress and the fact that I eat too much and too fast.

Doctors said it is likely acid. I've been on omeprazole before and they have worked although not immediately.

Sorry if I don't help much. I just wanna let you know you are not alone.

I've had stomach problems for over 20 years.  And all of yours sound like nothing major.  Bloating can come from eating too fast, or drinking liquid with a meal.  Anxiety will definitely cause bloating.  My stomach, when acting up, will always feel better in the morning.
