    Hi Colette

    I can't tell you not to worry,but hope I can at least decrease the level of worrying by saying I have exactly the same problems. I spoke to my GP and he explained that the stomach/ bladder / heart can be affected. I keep thinking I have appendicitis because the pain can be quite acute.On bad days my bladder never feels empty and my stomach either makes me feel sick or like I have ulcers etc.At present I have shortness of breath and pain in my lungs when walking any distance with pain and heart flutters that have panicked me on more than one occasion.

    I have started to come to the conclusion that I need to change some of my diet, and am looking directly at dairy products at the moment,because I note that some of my problems do seem to come from either eggs or milk.

    The way I get over my bladder problem is to involve myself in something totally absorbing so that I switch off from the messages,telephone call to a friend,jigsaw puzzle,etc.

    I don't think we should ignore the pain and I keep a journal so that my GP can glance at it.
    When in doubt discuss with GP. Hope you feel better soon.
    Hugs and thinking of you

    I read your bio and saw you are from TN...what part? I live in middle TN. I am so sorry to hear about your pain. I have never had the stomach pain but I do have pain in my ribs sometimes. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers and hope you will soon feel better.
