I've had tightness in upper middle abdomen for about a year- feels like a belt around my upper abomen and someone is pulling it tight (worse at night). My physican immediately said gallbladder but two gastroenterologists independently said they didn't think the symptoms were gallbladder related. Endoscopy found some evidence of acid reflux and a week after endoscopy (coincidence?), I noticed relux symptoms in my throat- globus sensation and inflamed mucus membranes which ENT doc agreed was LPR. I have had CT scan, ultrasound, HIDA scan, endocsopy.... still no conclusive diagnosis. Next week trip to allergist to see about food allergies. I wonder if the feeling of the lump in my upper abdomen is related to the acid reflux or just coincidental?
Anyone else have this?
