Upper abdomen pain
18 Replies
Kerrie - July 30

Does anyone else with fibro suffer from central upper abdomen pain? I can't find any reference to upper abdomen pain in fibro patients. However, it is something I am struggling with badly. I have had endoscopy and colonoscopys done and ultrasounds which are all fine. This is probably my worse pain though.

I also feelas if I am not here half the time, its like my body is here but i'm not, is this another fibro thing?

How about a hiatal hernia?

Hi, Kerrie. Are you talking about right under your breastbone? What kind of pain is it? I have pain there often and it is like an uncomfortable, maybe gnawing sensation. Worse with stress and anxiety. I have GERD and a very small hiatal hernia, which Fantod mentioned.

As for the feeling of "not here," yes, that is definitely part of fibro. It's like a sensation of being detached from reality.

Yep definitley detached from reality,ok one less thing for me to stop worrying about.

The pain in my upper stomach is about 4 or 5 fingers away from the bottomo from my bra strap and the pain changes sometimes its gnawing and sometimes its a burning pain. I have no hiat hernia.

I do also have mild ankylosing spondylitis in my thoracic spine so possibly referred pain but I can get the stomach pain when I haven't the back pain. I have been to see a couple of gastroenterologists about it and they just say i'm a mysetery! Which is not a great help when you are in so much pain.

I get upper stomach pain just under my breast's it feels more like a muscle spasm and the pain in my upper back is like a burning sensation I used to sleep soundly with 5 pillows but now with the constant pain in my shoulders and neck & back I have gone down to 3.

If you mean by not being here but your body is then I have it really bad sometimes. ITS LIKE I am lost or out of it . Confused maybe is the right word?My mine seems to be there and IM here. Really freaky, My family and friends probaly think I am losing it big time. They could be right. Is this fibro fog????????????????

 

Kerrie - August 2

do you find that your stomach pain is there most of the time?and do you feel the stomach pain as a burning pain? Is there anything that eases your pain at all?

 

Kerrie - August 2

I would be interested to know if it is fibro fog as it sounds very similar to what i have. I feel like i am out of it most of the time.

I also every evening get a weird sensation in the right side of my head(have had a brain scan and allfine)then it feels like my whole right sidegoes weak and I have jelly legs and feel like I am going to pass out, anyone else have thisone?

I get upper abdomen pain so bad that I through up. It radiates up into my chest, neck and head. I've tried alot of gerd meds, I've had endoscopy, colonoscopy, I have mild reflux but other than that I just live with it. Tylenol helps and I believe it has to do with the tightness of the muscles around my rib cage area.

 

Kerrie - August 3

So did they tell you it is partof fibromyalgia? As my rhuematologist said it wouldn't be fibro causing this and I can't find hardly anything on the net talking about upper abdoment pain related to fibro.

I have had four hours sleep last night as I have been in completeagony with my upper stomach. I had liverproblems when having mylittle girl last year and the pain is so similar but i have had loads of tests that confirm my liver has been back to normal two weeks after i gave birth.

Doyou find anything that helps or bringson the abdomen pain?

 

Kerrie - August 3

The pain also makes me feel very sick, I was doing alli could to stop myself throwing up last night.

I was told it was IBS which alot of people get with fibro. I like you am a mystery to most docors. I don't take any meds anymore becasue I had so many side effects. It can be very upsetting to live with.

 

Kerrie - August 3

Is IBS pain not low down though rather than upper pain?

 

freedomwithin - August 3

I was told IBS can be thru out your while intestinal trac? One doc says one thing and another doc may say something else. It's a hard call. It comes and goes from day to day with me. I also get so much pressure in my head on a daily basis that it affects my eye sight. Have you ever had this?

 

Kerrie - August 4

I suffer with a pressue feeling on right side of head which seems to make my right leg go weak aswell, really horrible numb like feeling, is that what you get?

 

freedomwithin - August 4

yes! it is exactly what I get except on my left side. My heart starts to race and my whole left side goes numb. I was told it's part of anxiety and the autonomic nervous system not knowing what to do. I have a lot of relaxation tapes that I listen to and yoga has also helped. It's part of accepting the body for what it is to.

Its really quite scary when it happens though isn't it. Seems to happen to me everyday around 8pm
