Im really unwell w an unknown stomach issue anyway but recently i have such a heavy full feeling right in my upper abdomen directly in my stomach it feels like a balloon or a heavy weight that shouldn't be there in my tummy. I'm so nauseous too, and i have a feeling like a lump in my throat i feel like i need to swallow down but there's nothing to swallow? my stomach also aches quite a lot when it happens. This happens multiple times a day everyday for ages now. Does this sound like reflux?!

      This sounds like gastritis to me. It’s exactly how I was when first diagnosed. You need to eat a bland diet and manager your stress. Your doctor can give you PPI meds to settle down the acid.

      It definitely sounds like reflux, but also like when I get a lot of mucus in my tummy (I say as someone with chronic reflux). Reflux can cause fierce post nasal drip which can cause a full feeling + cramping+nausea.

        @zellarius try eating less fat, smaller meals, chewing food thoroughly and eating slowly. drinking soy milk helps too but drink it slowly.

      It does sound like it's acid reflux related, as I too am dealing with the same issues. I have just found that I have gallstones as well, after have 3 gallstones attacks. (If you had a gallstone attack, believe me, you would know. It's the most excruciating pain). But many people have gallstones without having systems. Could be something worth getting checked though. I too am still am still dealing with the unknown of my digestive issues. All I can say is, keep looking for answers. And work your way towards and a healthier lifestyle if not already.

        @RaeOfSunshineee oh i’m rly sorry to hear that get well soon :( i’ve had my gall bladder checked - they couldn’t find stones but said i have biliary sludge?? no clue if that’s in relation. Feeling this is either gastritis or an ulcer i’m not sure which but hoping for some answers asap
