Looking for some help please.
For 60 hours I have a nasty pain just under my breastbone down to navel, bloating, feeling nauseas but not vomiting. 8 years ago I had Gastritis & this is what it feels like but I'm not sure. I'm waiting for a reply from the IBD clinic who know me well but have started 10mg Omeprazol x 2 per day, 500mg Ciprofloxacin x1 per day, 10mg Pepcid x 2 per day. Also Paracetamol for headaches & neck & backaches which have come on suddenly. I had a covid & flu jab 7 days before onset, first time for flu jab. After 30 hours the severe pain eased so I put off the dreaded trip to Emergencies but now there is a dull pain in the same areas, less bloating & no nausea. After eating small bland foods it almost feels like its not passing & is sitting in there. My BMs have decreased & are soft & thin, difficult to push out, normally I have 8 per day now 2 or 3.
I'm thinking of taking a laxative and/or Pepto Bismol. I know there's no substitute for a professional opinion but my local hospital are hopeless, better to travel 200kms to Barcelona where my IBD clinic is & they expect me, hence I wait for a reply. In the meantime I'm a little scared I'm taking the wrong meds.
