Very likely you are: Experiencing gastroesophageal reflux disease. This problem will definitely cause the symptoms you describe. You should avoid alcohol, coffee and tea (including decaf), and highly seasoned foods. Lists of foods to avoid are available in the internet.

Having severe headache, middle back pain and neck pain, upper abdominal pain (can't lay on side) diarrhea. Just diagnosed with strep yesterday. Help!

Strep: Common symptoms include headache fever and sore throat. Other symptoms include: nausea and vomiting, abdominal pain, muscle pain, or rash. The diarrhea could be related to the anabiotic and if it is persistent could actually be an anabiotic associated infection called c diff colitis. If the diarrhea persists a stool sample will be necessary. Otherwise alternating tylenol (acetaminophen) and Ibuprofen plenty of rest and fluids is the treatment.

Doctor can evaluate: Many things are in the upper abdomen: stomach, pancreas, liver, small intestine, gall bladder, large intestine, abdominal muscles, etc... An exam by a primary care doctor can help figure things out. Pain in the right upper abdomen, especially with symptoms that occur after eating, can be due to gallstones or other gall bladder disease. A doctor can evaluate for gall bladder or other problems.

Go to the er and make sure you tell them you are 3 wks postpartum; they should evaluate you stat-no waiting. Go now.

5 days of Constipation, black stool, lower back pain, upper abdominal pain in centre which eases when I lie upside down. What could be the cause?

Nonspecific: These symptoms don't point towards a single problem that can be diagnosed in this forum. Sounds like it would be appropriate to visit the doctor. Ask about whether or not there could be blood in the stool. Hope this helps!

Get checked: It may not be anything significant that you sense sticking out from the left side of your abdomen when lying down. Still your abdominal pain for two months is worth investigating initially by a good clinical examination to make sure that your organs and their functions are fine.
