Abdominal : Abdominal pain elicited by palpation and related to meals could reflect possible peptic ulcer among other things.

For now, at least, try to avoid spicy, acidic, and heavily seasoned foods; don't eat large or bulky foods within several hours of lying down; cut down on foods or drink high in caffeine content (coffee, tea, cola, chocolate, mountain dew, etc.).

What are my realistic chances of stomach or colon cancer at 22? I usually have a big appetite but today I couldn't finish eating a hamburger steak

At 22, your chances of other causes, such as a temporary stomach bug, gastritis or acid reflux, are much higher than your risk of cancer. Take it easy, avoid alcohol, tobacco, spicy and acidic foods (such as citrus & tomato) for the next few days, and if you don't feel back to yourself within a week, see your dr. ...Read more

Finished flagyl treatment for d.fragilis, feel better but have dull stomach ache, is it due to eating unhealthy foods like Chips for past few days?

Maybe the bacteria: I was wondering how did you know that it was d.fragilis, you probably had your stool tested and confirmed it. You have to know that d.fragilis can cause stomach aches, although you got rid of the bacteria, your bowels are still inflamed, so that's why you might still have the symptoms. Less likely due to eating ships, I would give it some time to get better. ...Read more

That said, it generally takes a great deal of force to cause internal bleeding, such as from a car wreck or serious altercation.

When I need to pee but don't go, my right side of my abdomen is very painful. Doesn't go away until I've finished.

When I need to pee but don't go, my right side of my abdomen is very painful. Doesn't go away until I've finished.

Learn from pain!: Sadly, some of us need a hard lesson to learn. Make it very rare that you need to pee and don't. It's not good for you and can cause bad painful things to happen. It's good that the pain goes after you do pee — that means you've been fortunate and if you start behaving better, you'll be okay. Drink lots of water and don't delay pee. It's that simple. Best! ...Read more
