It's an burning sensation on the left an right sides of my upper abdomen, could there be something wrong with my digestion or lack of B12 protein help?

See a GI doctor: Or your family doctor. Vitamin B12 deficiency is a rarity in the usa among anyone with a reasonable diet. You need to see a professional and bring with you a complete list of all symptoms and their timing and relationship to meals or anything else. Good luck and hope this clears up soon.

Burning sensation which started in left abdomen maybe ovaries after a very heavy period it has moved around my body to right side abdomen both breasts and front of calves what could be causing this I also have a lot of relatively large fibroids?

Could be fibroids: Fibroids are the most common cause of heavy periods. The pain you describe could also be due to fibroids. When large they can press on pelvic nerves to cause pain in the pelvis, hips, buttocks, thighs, and down the legs. Talk to your doctor. While many places would obtain a pelvic ultrasound, pelvic MRI would actually be better. It delineates the fibroids to see if they correlate with your pain.

What could be the cause of an abdominal burning sensation?

What could be the cause of an abdominal burning sensation?

Many possibilities: Several problems could cause abdominal burning sensation but the most common would be stomach irritation (gastritis) or even stomach ulcers. Less likely would be gallbladder problems or other intestinal problems. To figure out the actual cause you may need upper endoscopy (egd) which is very effective at diagnosing ulcers and gastritis and is a quick 5 minute procedure done with light IV sedation.

Hi, for the pass 2 years I'm having very bad burning sensation on my right side abdomen?

Get eval: 2 years is along time to be dealing with a burning pain in your abdominal area. See a dr and get some testing to determine what is causing your sensations. Diverticular disease is a possibility, but a good colon exam, including a screening scope can be diagnostic. If your colonoscopy is normal, than you can look at other possible causes. As stated, a good exam and some testing will help you.
