    Can gastric problems cause a headache and pressure behind eyes?
    An_252378 posted:

    I have been having the following symptoms for a year now:

    It feels like sand moving around in my lower abdomen. It also feels like my lower abdomen insides are somehow glued together and under a lot of pressure. I also feel a lump in my throat constantly though it almost feels like its connected to pressure i feel fairly constantly behind the eyes.

    I also have pinching pain which almost feels like little tiny burns in my neck and in my legs..

    Before all these symtoms occured I had pinching pains in my legs that hurt more when i sat down and also had "bubbling in legs in spots close to my buttox"-it feels like a rising on my leg in a single spot and just to check i was not making anything up, even if i place my hand on that spot, i can really feel it lift up and down. (the spots where the bubbling feeling occurs are relatively small in the area of a 2 inches by 2 inches.)-when the symptoms of the pinching pains and bubbling in my legs occured, my doctor found lots of white blood cells in my urine and decided to have me take antibiotics for a urinary tract infection...which i did...but that did not at all ease my symptoms...they kept comming back and eventually became very frequent when i was lying down or after running or sitting for a long time.

    I have had an upper endoscoppy since i have the lump in the throat feeling and regurgitation after running that does not decrease after taking antiacids. Nothing abnormal was found...

    Does anybody experience anything similar as I? Could i have a disease that is not well known about?
