Is it a tumor?? Or a blood vessel about to explode it’s scary I feel like any minute I’m gonna drop dead also
I’m very very gassy all day long I’m also constipated a little and when I do poop it smells really really bad worse than usual but my gi doctor dosent seem worried at all he just says relax and to change my diet he believes it’s my diet am I gonna die what is these spasms??

Maybe you have a stomach ulcer? How scary to not know what it is. I'm sorry. Maybe you need an upper scope? Good luck on finding out what's wrong and how to treat it. :goodluck: :hug::hug:

Stress related ibs mabye? Peppermint tea. Peppermint cordial? Boiling water cooled down sometimes helps to calm the spasms for me. I had every type of scope with the same symptoms as you and they couldn't find anything either. Here if you want to chat

Mentioning tea is a good idea. Strong brewed unsweetened Chamomile tea helps my stomach a little. :)

I get the same thing. I had some tests run and they are all normal.
Did your GI doc do tests for you?

You could have stool analysis. One is for hidden blood (the test for cancer) and there is another for calprotectin and lactoferrin. Those are for inflammation /infection etc.
If they are all negative that eliminates quite a long list of gut conditions and illnesses.

I get this creepy feeling in my lower belly, and then it swells up. Not painful but uncomfortable because it gives me the creeps. Anxiety kicks in when I feel that. Like an adrenaline feeling and really restless.
I think I have some kind of mild ibs.
