Feels like the same old ibs.
As you know my abdomen scan 2 weeks ago was great.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It feels like windy pressure around belly button and up right slightly.
Stools normal
Urine normal full of energy.
If I push the abdomen it's soft and if I shove it it makes the wind move. No real pain anywhere ? Ibs ?
I guess running off for a blood test is not required !??? Lol
Yes, this is IBSyou absolutely do NOT need a blood test
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'm guessing I'm stuck with it mate if it was serious would be in one place and get worse ? With diarea etc ? It comes and goes and moves. I can almost push the wind about lol
Yes, there would be some new symptoms
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Stools normal.

anxiety presents in different ways in different peoplealso maybe he had it and didn't say anything
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
You are clever my friend.
Well if it was serious drinking Chablis would have had no effect ????
I think communication with you guys is important for me
So thNk you.
LOL. Not sure about clever but I know people. Especially people in your father's generation didn't really talk about personal issues. Yes, if it was anything but anxiety then chablis wouldn't work.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Ultrasound reads pancreas normal in size and echoengicity.

Plus the symptoms are ibs. Pal ?
Did 10 k today 44 mins. Ready to come to London ?
Sounds good Mark!Everything is good. You wouldn't be that fast if something was wrong
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
So with wind pain in sternum and around that's not pancreas ?
Also my gamma gt is 7. That blood is relevant to pancreas ?
So just ibs mate can be scary can't it ???
No that is not pancreas. That is just stomach/intestinal gasGGT 7 is great but not relevant to the pancreasIBS can certainly be scary. Yes
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok pal but it's not pancreas the gas is due to the stress in the brain triggering nerve reactions in the colon ?
After a glass of wine or two or relaxation the trigger for flight or flight is cut and I feel fine. And so on and so on ??
1)exactly. 2)yes
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
My last lipase count last Dec was 51 and amylase 108. Just checked.

I've been pushing abdomen so much it sore on my muscles. !!???
I take it trying to feel my pancreas is stupid ?!!!! Lol
It is not the pancreasMark do you realize that your anxiety about your pancreas only sprouted when I mentioned pancreatitis.That is not rational sir
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
And I've gained 4 pound on my holiday !!!! That's not like the pancreas either is it mate !!! Not rational as you say.
Would have lost weight !!! And it would have got worse ??
I'm gonna have to get on the diet tommorow pal.
So I'm ok now was ibs and my brain is far from rational
I'm sure it because you have been eating and drinking a lot no everyone gains weight on hilday
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
But if pancreas I'd have been in a lot of pain and lost weight. ? Correct pal ?
Thanks Phil sorry for being a crazy anxiety idiot !!!!!
