I have a lot of stomach pain when I eat and recently blood in my stool, do I have ulcers?

Possibly: This situation requires immediate attention. See your doctor asap. If you have none, consider an er visit. An ulcer will not cause red blood in the stool. That is a lower GI problem. Ulcers cause black or tarry stools. ...Read more

NOT good if melena: Dark-colored stools may result from iron supplements, foods you eat (like a lot of spinach), substances (like peptobismol), but most significantly suggests bleeding. When blood is denatured by acid in your stomach, as from ulcers, stools will turn tarry ("melena"). Blood may also be ingested from nose bleeds, bleeding gums. Stop any nsaid's you're taking & call your doctor ASAP for evaluation. ...Read more

In 2008 my gallbladder was removed, since then I cannot take any medicine (pain pills, cough medicine, pamprin) without severe stomach pains.?

In 2008 my gallbladder was removed, since then I cannot take any medicine (pain pills, cough medicine, pamprin) without severe stomach pains.?

Agree with Dr Brady: You need to have this evaluated because without knowing more about the cause, could be a problem that persists with serious long term effects. Sounds like you may have gastritis, or mucosal irritation of the lining of the stomach. If the pain pills are NSAIDS, try to avoid these for awhile. Tylenol (acetaminophen) may be an alternative if no contraindications for you. Pamprin can also cause this. ...Read more

Had cold symptoms 2 days. Yesterday was dizzy and had headcold, including chesty cough. Felt acid in chest. Now no voice + bad top stomach pain. Fever?

Sounds viral: Cold symptoms followed by loss of voice is almost always viral in nature. The thing that bothers me a bit more is the emphasis you put on "bad pain" in upper abdomen. Any time you have severe pain, it warrants evaluation by a doctor. You could have a viral process such as mono that has caused irritation/enlargement of your liver and/or spleen and that can be quite painful. ...Read more
