Hey!I've had a few concerning ambigious symptoms that I think I may have been able to pinpoint to IBS & GERD, I'm interested to see if people who're diagnosed can relate to what I've been feeling.Anyways, it started with bowel oddities, with extreme difficulty in passing & large lumpy stools being a mix of colours - from dark brown to a faded yellowa day or so later, I was struck by an indescribable "pain" in my abdomen - not pain in a traditional sense, but rather unpleasantness, a tingling, cold & numb sensation right below my chest & bottom of neck that came in waves - the sort of feeling that just can't be ignored and drives you insane. ON THE SAME DAY, I suddenly had difficulty swallowing, it felt like everything was getting stuck in my chest, or I'd drink some hot tea - and I'd swear I felt a hot liquid, and I'd swear I "felt" it going down, leaving a trail of heat and ending up right under my ribcage on the right of my chest. (I know, stomach is on the other side!), right after that my stomach would gurgle, growl, moan...all of that stuff, all the while leaving me with pressure & the feeling of air bubbles popping all around my mid-lower abdomen. (With that tingling numbness sensation too)And, as much as it pains me to say this - but I seem to belch more gas/air than the body should be able to store, I didn't know that a minute or more of nearly plain, hard belching was possible. I was possessed! All followed by a bit of regurgitation.(Alot of the belching felt like it was coming straight out of my lungs)Just to shorten things, here are some other notable symptoms:- Cold liquid will cause intense an intense growing pressure pain right of chest- I idiotically had a spoon of malt vinegar, thinking it might help - as soon as I swallowed it I felt my stomach move in all sorts of ways, it made all sorts of loud sounds and gave me some of the worst stinging pain I've felt through my entire abdomen, it was like a chemical reaction going off in my stomach!- Belly feels cold when touching it, whereas rest of body is of a normal warmth- Liquids seem to stay in stomach for too long, I can still hear a glass of water slushing around when moving even after 2 hours.I'm certain I've got something wrong with my gastrointestinal system, does it sound like gerd/ibs? maybe something else that's similar?
