Stomach trouble
2 Replies
Tina - May 2

Hi
I have fibro & costochondritis now for about 5yrs & have the usual symptoms etc..
But for the few months I have these uncomfortable stomach problems, bloating, cramps
Tummy sore to touch, acid reflux, my stomach often looks as if im pregnant. It can be very uncomfortable
Does anyone else have these symptoms?? Doctors cant seem to find a problem with my stomach, but I feel something has to be the cause. I not sure if the inflammtion of the costo is causing it the uncomfortable
Feeling as its sore to touch. Can anyone advise on this?
Many thanks
Tina:)

Tina, Sounds like you have IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) which goes along with IBS.
This can be caused by stress, antibiotics or eating too much fiber, salad & milk products.It is miserable stuff!! Shaklee puts out a probiotic for IBS that is wonderful and will put the good baceteria back in your gut. My pharmacy carries a natural product that I keep in the refrigerator that has acidophilus in it that really helps when I flare up. I have noticed that my acid reflux is worse when the IBS flares us - so I believe there is a connection. I take Protonix (prescription drug) for the acid reflux. Praying for you.
