    Indigestion that won't go away
    Jennifer_Keller posted:
    I have had indigestion everyday of my life for about 13 years. It affects me when my husband is around because he likes to be rude about it. I've had issues where it would bother me when I was working in customer service to where I've had several customers say something to me about it as if I was being rude to them when it is a condition that I have no control over. My stomach cannot handle a boat load of medication on a daily basis. My indigestion is so bad it causes me pain in my chest and pierces through my back and neck. My indigestion affects my entire digestion system and I also suffer from chronic constipation. I can sometimes hear the gas as well as feel it as it goes through my digestive systems. It is very painful. I have also noticed lumps in different parts of my abdomen. I experience bloating as a result of the indigestion problem. My menstrual cycle has also change significantly. I've went from have a 3-5 day cycle to having a cycle that last for a month and stops for a month.
