Food poisoning maybe: Your symptoms are too nonspecific, but the timing of symptoms (and lack of refrigeration of pre-cooked food) sure supports an expectation of food poisoning. Should pass, but if distress persists, or is accompanied by bleeding, worsening pain, lightheadedness, or development of vomiting or fever, then get a good examination with appropriate testing for reassurance and/or treatment. ...Read more

I love mangoes and lately I enjoy eating a whole mango every day or so but about a minute after eating a mango I get stomach cramps?

Moderation: Mangoes are the best fruit. You may try to limit your intake to small portions, rather than eating a whole mango in one sitting. You may be able to gradually increase the amount you could eat at one time.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex.

On the mend?: Depending upon the nature of your food poisoning, particularly if an invasive bacteria was involved, you can experience post-infectious irritability (some use the term post-infectious irritable bowel syndrome). Of course, persistence of symptoms warrants evaluation to rule out other pathology that needs treatment. May also consider: food allergy or previously unsuspected food intolerance here. ...Read more

After eating coliflower sometimes I get gas and stomach cramps, burping is this gastritis, if so what should I do I love vegatables?

Maybe intolerance: Seemingly your belly is just not agreeing with cauliflower. Most people have some degree of disagreement with certain foods. What you described is not gastritis. If you have excessive gas/belching with this, gas-x may help. Also, eat a bit less of this to see if it helps. Fortunately, there are plenty of other veggies around--i like them too. Veggies up to a healthier you! Good luck. ...Read more

Can a stomach ulcer cause chills after eating?

Can a stomach ulcer cause chills after eating?

Chills: Yes. Chills occur when there is a discrepancy between the ambient atmospheric temperature and that of the surface of the skin. If the skin temp is lower, the body's thermostat will try to increase the temperature by chilling which is muscular and raises the temp. When you eat you may redistribute some of the circulation from the skin to the intestines, and a stomach ulcer may induce such changes. ...Read more

What can cause ulcers in middle section of small intestine? Accompanied by blood & mucous in poo. With stomach cramps

Small intestines: Lesions in the small intestine are difficult to diagnose and often the patient has to swallow a camera like capsule to demonstrate it. Causes of ulcerations there can be difficult to identify. Medications like aspirin, Advil and Aleve are causes. Sometimes the bleeding lesion is caused by a vascular malformation which simply bleeds like a nose bleed. Your gastroenterologist is best qualified ...Read more

Severe upper stomach pain like a vise. Bad after eating, bad on an empty stomach, I think I have a ulcer. Can I use DGL licorice will it stop the pain?

Severe upper stomach pain like a vise. Bad after eating, bad on an empty stomach, I think I have a ulcer. Can I use DGL licorice will it stop the pain?

DGL licorice: Although an ulcer is one possible cause of your pain, there are many other potential causes also. DGL licorice would not cause your pain to resolve even if your pain is due to an ulcer. Your best bet is to see your doctor for a diagnosis of the cause of your pain. In the meantime, try omeprazole 10mg each morning. Do not take this for longer than two weeks without a diagnosis. Good luck. ...Read more

This reaction is usually triggered by stress in the invidividual. The cramps are often relieved by having a bm. There is no med for this. Reduce stress. ...Read more

Keep getting pain between ribs lasting 2-3 days goes then back. Gnawing pain, better after food, wakes me up. Back hurts also. Stomach ulcer likely?

Not likely, but...: It is not likely that you have an ulcer, but with symptoms such as that, it is certainly possible. For now, I would avoid aspirin, ibuprofen, and any over-the-counter pain relievers except for Tylenol (acetaminophen). I would use over-the-counter antacids such as Tums whenever you have stomach pain. If you find that you need antacids more than 2 to 3 times per week, I would see your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more

Possible gallbladder: Having pain in upper abdoen that radiates to the back or shoulders and occurrs after meals will most likely end up being gallbladder disease. This can be diagnosed with an ultrasound and if that is negative a hida scan. When you say you have had a camera I presume you had an endoscopy. That would have seen an ulcer if you have one. Ask your doctor for a gallbladder work up. ...Read more

I suffer from premenstrual symptoms (abdominal cramps, mouth ulcers, painful gums, sore breasts) for 2 weeks in every month. Why so prolonged?

Visit MD: If your body reacts to your female cycle like this every time it probably has to do with the way your body handles hormonal changes they accompany this window of time. Palliative treatment of mouth ulcers with Advil (ibuprofen) and a swizzle rinse with a numbing agent would help you get through mouth soreness. ...Read more
