Bad Stomach Ache before meals, food seems to alleviate symptoms
I've been getting pretty severe stomach aches only before meals, it's definitely not just normal hunger as I'm eating the same amount I've always had. The pain had been just below the belly button but lately its near my lower right abdominal. Even after I've eaten I get a acidic feeling in my lower throat maybe 30-90 mins post meal. Around the evening onwards I start to feel very bloated and have the need to burp/belch alot and it makes my stomach feel a little better.
My doctor just said it's IBS, but that's not really a diagnosis as IBS is a very general term and doesn't mean a specific thing. I've been taking Lansoprazole (Proton Pump Inhibitor) for about 2 weeks and the symptoms are only slightly better but no way near gone.
Any idea's ?
