Bad night

Shooting pain at 1am and no sleep since as just waiting for the next one. Loads of trapped wind that hurts as it moves about.

  1. I have bad gas pain at times too. I think anxiety gets worse at night and causes it. I try to meditate and calm down. It can help sometimes. Hope you feel better.

    1. Hi Marlie

      Thank you for your reply.

      Yeah awful pain that shoots across my belly.
      I normally get up for an hour and move around to try
      to get some relief. That's very true about anxiety as
      I find myself worried about going to bed.
      Had two good nights recently by skipping coffee and
      avoiding milk which I used to drink a lot.
      Hope you are doing well.

      1. I am the same with my anxiety I have suffered with it for years but my stomach aches and constant wind make me more anxious, it’s a vicious cycle to be in , I am so fed up and lethargic with it , do you get tired with it, take care x

    2. Have you tried the clinically proven low FODMAP elimination/re-introduction diet has been shown to reduce symptoms in the majority of IBS suffers?
