Lately, I've been getting random, sudden attacks that feel like gas and acid indigestion. It's so painful that I'm doubled over with sharp, stabbing pains and can't even walk properly; once in a while, my stomach feels completely hollowed out and as though I'm going to vomit. When this happens, I take a reliever like Zantac or Eno and sit with a heat pad, but then my stomach--once settled from the acid--gets extremely gurgly and loud. And when I say gurgly, I mean it feels like there are bubbles in my lower abdomen that pop and move and sometimes emit a groaning noise. It feels like if I passed gas I would feel better, but I'm not sure if that's the case.So, stupid question. Is this gas and acid indigestion?? What in the heck would cause such a horrible flare-up? And what can I do to prevent and treat it--especially seeing as how I'm travelling soon?
