I am female 34 years old and have been dealing with some pretty bad stomach issues. I dealt with a very stressful job change which i think set off my stomach issues. I was inbetween sizes on my uniform and of course i chose the smaller one hoping i would lose weight. I think that pushed the stomach acid up into my esophagus and gave me some pretty severe reflux. I couldnt eat, was getting indigestion, gas, bloating, gnawing stomach pain, light colored bad smelling diarrhea, burning in my stomach. I could hardly eat and when i did it offered some relief until i got hungey again. I started omeprazole which helped for a couple weeks, and helped my upper stomach issues, i am able to eat and go longer with an empty stomach without getting sick, . Most of my symptoms cleared up, even my stool was normal but after eating a burrito which was a little spicy, it seemed like it came back, but a little less severe. Now i am dealing with upset stomach, bloating, stomach cramps (mostly at night trying to sleep with an empty stomach) and watery foul smelling diarrhea every morning. I can go all day without another episode but i usually have to go about 2-4 times in the morning. During all of this i also stopped my progesterone only birth control after about a month and a half and have to take advil for bad menstrual cramps which just makes my stomach pain worse (i usually take 8-12 advil a day to control the pain, but even one advil will cause indigestion and stomach pain for me, but i have no help from doctors on this issue so i am stuck:() i was wondering if this could be hormone related? Just a bad IBS flare? (Always had stomach issues but never gerd or relfux until now, and i heard progesterone can contribute) SIBO from PPIs? Any suggestions what it could be or what to do to help it? I suffer from chronic anxiety and stress, could it be low stomach acid?? Please help!
