Hi, I've had deep, terrible gas pains above my belly button and to the left for two weeks now. It seems to intensify a few hours after I eat. My bowels are unrecognizable and are very sluggish. I am experiencing belching and bloating too. Initailly, I thought a veggie chile dish I ate for dinner the night before it began, was the culprit. Then after the pain intensified and I began having diarrhea, I figured it was a bug. I don't have diarrhea anymore but am rather constipated since I put myself on a liquid diet. I am now trying to eat normally hoping that things will go back to "normal" but to no avail. I am baffled and concerned. I am seeing a doctor this week but was wondering if anyone had something similar.
