Maybe: There are many causes of belly pain, some of which are simply annoying, others are deadly. Assuming your doctor did thorough interview & exam, if stomach acid seems to be most likely cause, then high dose omeprazole (Prilosec) can help determine if acid is to blame. If symptoms persist, then other causes should be investigated. Acidity usually affects only upper, central abdomen. ...Read more

Sounds like: possible variant MIGRAINE.. cluster headches are one variety. TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA another The double vision/Gi symptoms are a bit "troublesome" At any rate ask your PCP (Primary Care Provider) for a referral to a Neurologist who specializes in HEADACHES....There are multiple medications which deserve a trial however your co-existing medical issues eg Depression MUST be TAKEN into consideration!

Diagnosed recently cll stage 0 but just started having abdominal pain left side, feeling bloated. Wbc 13, 000. Will i need chemo if nodes in abdomen?

Here's an idea: Today, it's customary to subtype cll by its genetic markers. It's actually about a dozen different diseases, some aggressive, some not. I'll bet that your hematologist has already done this, and your tumor mutation / translocation profile will be more helpful as a guide to treatment. Whether your spleen is big or not is much less of a factor than other parameters. ...Read more

IBS?: One cause of bloating is the Irritable Bowel Syndrome(IBS). This is a functional disorder in which delayed passage of intestinal gas can occur causing the sensation of bloating. In IBS patients can have pain due to a heightened pain sensitivity to gaseous distention of the bowel. Another cause of bloating and pain is constipation. ...Read more

Stop the Bupropion : What you are experiencing sounds like an adverse medication side effect. Angioedema (throat swelling/laryngeal edema) is not a common side effect of burpropion, seen in less than 1% of individuals who take it, and you may be one of them. Stop the medication now (can be lethal) and report side effects to your doctor asap. If you added something new to your diet, that could explain it too. ...Read more

Abdominal pain: hi Lisa913 I am assuming there are no urinary symptoms, and assuming the "stomach" pain refers to the lower abdominal pelvic pain. This could be 2 things.Constipation. Please use stool softener or bulking agent (Metamucil) or pelvic congestion mid cycle (Advil helps) Chronic abdominal pain = RT doctor visit thanks ...Read more
