not feeling well this w/e.

I have terrible gut ache, which appears to be mostly wind, but my burps stink of yeast (sorry).

I've taken the equivalent of rennies (I think), but now I'm worrying that I shouldn't have done as ds is still breastfeeding. They didn't work anyway.

So does anyone have any ideas, either about what is wrong with me, or whether you can take Rennies while b/fing. NHS direct only has stuff about vomiting, not terrible belly ache.

I have to take dd to the docs tomorrow for (another) ear infection so would really rather not have to make an appointment for myself (different doctors - 2 lots of waiting).

moan moan moan.

OK when i say "terrible" I don't mean rolling on the floor in agony, which is what you do with apendicitis isn't it? It comes and goes a bit too.

It does seem to ease off a bit when i press my tum, but that could be my over-active hyperchondriac imagination. It is in the middle of my tum too.

wind? Constipation? Milk can sometimes settle a tummy ache. Hope you feel better soon.

Maybe www - it's just it's lasted 2 days now and i'm not constipated.

Appendicitus is to start with associated with central abdominal pain, then localising to the right side. You'd probably be feeling, or being sick too. Have you checked your temperature? That your burps are smelling of yeast makes me wonder if you could try taking some of those probiotic yoghurt drinks for a couple of days? If the pain is bad, or you have temp/nausea too I'd go to the docs though.

Don't think I have a temperature, nausea comes and goes. I'll have some yoghurt and go and see the doc tomorrow if it hasn't gone away I think.

I had terrible wind pains following my last section- they gave me peppermint tea- and my god that fot it moving! maybe try that?

SenoraPostrophe Sun 20-Feb-05 14:39:14

Peppermint tea...I think we have some of that.

I'm only worrying because i haven't eaten anything remotely dodgy and it came on quite suddenly. Could be my penance for a bad diet though.

I think i'll go and lie down.

I had an emergency appendix op a few years ago which my brill doc diagnosed even though I had atypical symptoms!! If it's appendix it will get worse. The other possibility could be a stomach ulcer, maybe?

KathH Sun 20-Feb-05 17:50:51

i had to have an emergency appendectomy too - everyones right if its appendicitus it will definately get worse - i literally couldnt move without throwing up and then after a while the pain shifted to the right. I'd had a chinese the night before and stupidly thought it was that!
