Over past 6 months I have lost 20lbs. The weight loss was kind of sudden-lost 1-5lbs a week for a while. Upper abdominal pain from feeling full from eating small amount of food. Nauseated. Friends think it's an eating disorder. How do I prove otherwise?

See your doctor.: Abdominal pain, unintentional weight loss, and early satiety are not normal, so if you truly feel that there is a change and that there is something wrong, you should see your doctor. He may or may not want to do tests at this point. Good luck. ...Read more

Had diarrhea before starting1 pill of Bentyl/day for IBS for past 3 days. Very queasy, significant loss of appetite. Mild abdominal pain, is this ok?

Had diarrhea before starting1 pill of Bentyl/day for IBS for past 3 days. Very queasy, significant loss of appetite. Mild abdominal pain, is this ok?

Common side effects: Bentyl (dicyclomine) slows down the gut, which is why it can help with diarrhea. But if the gut's too slow, it can cause food to sit in the stomach too long, causing poor appetite and nausea. It also makes it harder for gas and stool to pass, resulting in pain. The dose may need to be lowered, or the drug changed to something else. Often side effects improve with time, but discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

Lost unintentional weight, nausea, vomiting, flank R pain + lwr abdomen pain, decresed appetite, chills, hot flashes, fever comes goes. Whatcan this be? Help?

See a doctor ASAP: This can be due to many causes, including from an ovarian cyst, appendicitis, kidney infection and so on and so on. You sound as if this is severe enough to warrant your going to a doctor immediately. If your PCP cannot see you today, go to an ER and be seen.

31, male w/ stomach pain. I use to get this in my teens, went undiagnosed. Symptoms: pain, nausea, lower abdomen sucked in.

Sucked in?: If one gets recurrent abdominal pain, and the lower part of his abdomen gets "sucked in", but the upper part is bigger, that would be reason enough to go to the doctor right away so the doctor can see what is happening (if pain is mild). If pain is moderate or severe, one should go to the ER. The doctor will check to be sure there is no obstruction, or twisting (volvulus), or malrotation of bowel. ...Read more

Atleast 3 nights/week, I get severe stomach pain & bloating, acid reflux/nausea & just a general uncomfortable feeling in my abdomen. Some nights are wayworse than others. Like tonight! What can I do?

Gas and acid reflux: These symptoms seem related to gas in your intestine or stomach and acid reflex. You may also have extra intestinal contractions associated with gas trapping. The nausea is a symptom of air trapping and reflux of acid. Best remedy is prevention. Eat small bites. Chew thoroughly. Drink carefully. Do not gulp. For relief, an antacid with simethicone will help. Be regular with daily BM. ...Read more

Stomach pain the whole way across the top of my abdomen, with metallic taste in my mouth with nausea and vomiting. What might be going on?

Not certain: Your symptoms could reflect a serious problem with your liver or kidneys. An alternative explanation would be toxic exposure. I suggest you see a physician for blood work and examination. Your reported use of zofran (ondansetron) is confusing, as is your use of birth control pills after hysterectomy. Please bring all your medicines to the physician (herbals too) for a more complete review. ...Read more

Is someone with you?: If you are living at home with a family member or friend why not ask if they could take you to the closest urgent care center if your doctor's office is no longer open? Certainly stay as well hydrated as possible but taking small sips of water continuously or eating ice chips. You should be seen if symptoms don't get better quickly. ...Read more

What can cause early satiety, nausea, and stomach pain (upper left) if abdominal ultrasound and chest CT were normal?

What can cause early satiety, nausea, and stomach pain (upper left) if abdominal ultrasound and chest CT were normal?

Many things: These symptoms may indicate a problem with how the stomach empties and can occur for many reasons. Abdominal ultrasound would not even visualize the stomach. Chest ct may image a portion of the stomach, but would easily miss both anatomic and functional stomach pathology. A GI specialist may be able to determine the appropriate workup (e.g., gastric emptying study, barium swallow, manometry). ...Read more

Pain in lower back/abdomen, cramping, stomach pain with nausea during bowel movements. 5 days dihareah & pain, finally solid with same symptoms above?

Gastroenteritis: There are multiple possible explanations here. My advice would be to see a doctor if, within the next several days, the symptoms continue despite the resolution of the diarrhea. The inflammation produced by the infecting organism (if this is due to infection) may produce residual inflammation causing the abdominal pain and nausea. ...Read more

Infection? Pregnant?: What you describe could be the beginning of a viral syndrome that later could involve the respiratory system, An intestinal viral or bacterial infection could cause your problem as well. Pregnancy is a possibility and should be ruled out before taking any medication. You can go to the pharmacy and get a pregnancy test kit.
